  • Red Cross instructor teaching first aid

For more than a century the American Red Cross has been saving lives with Health & Safety Services education programs. American Red Cross training ranges from First Aid, CPR and AED to Swimming and Lifeguarding; from HIV/AIDS education to caregiving programs like Babysitter's Training.

Red Cross programs help people live safer and healthier lives. The Red Cross constantly strives to respond to the health and safety concerns of Americans at home, in school and in the workplace. Today's innovative programs also include teaching lay persons and professionals how to use Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to save victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Last year, nearly 12 million people enrolled in Red Cross Health and Safety Services courses.

You can help the Red Cross save lives. Become an instructor or an Authorized Provider, take a class, or volunteer with the Health and Safety Services Office of your local chapter.

The Red Cross offers a wide variety of training courses in first aid, CPR, AED, lifeguarding, swimming, babysitting, care giving, and other areas for both individuals and organizations. We are the most trusted training provider of health and safety training that meets OSHA guidelines and many other professional and regulatory standards.
