Organizational Training

More than 3 million Americans are injured on the job and nearly 4,500 workplace deaths occur every year. Are people at your organization prepared to act in an emergency to save a life?

The Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED program trains participants to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illness until medical personnel takes over.

The Red Cross now offers two-year certifications with free digital refreshers and the convenience of training where, and how you want it. We offer flexible delivery options that let you offer training when it’s most convenient for you.

If you would like to schedule an organizational training for a group of six or more at your location, please contact your local chapter.
