American Red Cross Encourages People to Learn to Save a Life
With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED courses teach attendees the skills to save a life.

The American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio is offering a variety of lifesaving health and safety courses during the months of March and April.

With an emphasis on hands-on learning, the Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED courses teach attendees the skills to save a life. Participants learn how to respond to common first aid emergencies, how to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults, the use of automated external defibrillators (AED), and more. Attendees also receive a two year certification and access to free online refreshers upon completion. Blended learning courses are available to allow flexibility to busy participants by completing their classroom training online and testing their skills in person.

More than 12,000 people took Red Cross courses in the greater Toledo area last year. People can visit redcross.org/takeaclass or call 1-800 RED CROSS to register and learn more about available courses.
