As the situation around the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic evolves, many of us are staying in our homes and practicing social distancing to help stop or slow down the spread of COVID-19 virus.
This is the perfect time to take an American Red Cross online class to learn lifesaving skills such as first aid and CPR. Training can give you the skills and confidence to act in an emergency and save a life.
Designed by experts, our online-only classes provide an interactive and engaging method to learning essential safety and preparedness information and skills. When you choose a class that is entirely online, you don’t have the opportunity to demonstrate your skill proficiency to a certified instructor, and therefore, may not meet the requirements for workplace safety certification.
Special pricing is available on select online courses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
