Each year, nearly four million people learn how to save a life in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED training classes. Individuals and businesses in the Northeastern New York Region can take advantage of special offers now through January 31, 2013.

"Emergencies occur every day, but with travel, extra stress and large gatherings, people are even more susceptible to accidents and illnesses during the holidays," said John Wagner, Service Delivery Manager for the American Red Cross Eastern New York Territory. "Make sure your family, household members, and co-workers have the skills and confidence to act in an emergency until help arrives."

First Aid and CPR/AED Training:

Everyone can save 20 percent on the price of a First Aid and CPR/AED course right now. Participants learn how to perform CPR and use an AED, what to do if someone is choking, and how to prevent and respond to other emergencies. Basic First Aid, as well as caring for seizures and other sudden illnesses are also covered.

Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED training helps meet OSHA standards and professional licensure requirements. Courses are offered in traditional classroom and blended learning formats. Blending learning is a combination of online learning and a shorter in-person skills session. The course fee includes a 2-year certification with online skill refreshers and digital materials.

Individuals seeking training can call 1-800-REDCROSS or go to redcross.org/takeaclass for course schedules and to register. Use HOLIDAY0113 as the coupon code to receive the 20 percent discount.
