CPR/AED Renwal & Recertification

Renew your CPR/AED certification – and keep your skills, and your credentials current. Designed for those whose current certifications are current, but near expiration, our abbreviated CPR/AED renewal classes allow you to maintain your credentials for an additional two years.

How It Works

CPR/AED recertification classes are available in person, and via our best-in-class blended Simulation Learning, which allows you to study online, then complete a hands-on skills session in person. This way, you can renew your certification in the way that suits you best. Find a class in your area and get recertified before your credentials expire.

Between Certifications

At the American Red Cross, we recommend that you complete a refresher every three months. By doing so, you can keep your skills fresh so that you're ready to help when someone has a sudden cardiac emergency. In order to help you maintain your skills, we offer free CPR/AED refresher materials, including interactive quizzes, games and videos, that you can access at any time during your two-year certification period. They take just minutes to complete, but can mean all the difference to those in need.

Certification Made Simple. Fast. Easy. Digital.

Red Cross Digital Certificates give you anytime, anywhere access to your certificates; plus the ability to print, share, and download them wherever and whenever you like. Digital certificates can be viewed, printed or shared online and can be accessed anytime through your Red Cross Account. Each certificate includes a unique ID and a QR code which meets employment requirements and allows employers to easily confirm your certificate is valid. Class participants and employers can visit redcross.org/confirm and enter the ID found on the digital certificate (or scan the QR code with a standard QR reader using a smart device) to access a copy of the valid certificate with student training information.
