February is National Heart Month and the perfect time to take training from the American Red Cross. You can learn how to perform CPR, use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and help save lives.
Cardiac arrest claims thousands of lives every year, so it’s important to know how to recognize and what do during a cardiac emergency. Red Cross CPR/AED classes take just a few hours and are recommended for everyone including parents, grandparents, teachers and frontline workers.
TAKE A CLASS A variety of courses are available. Provisional certification courses in First Aid/CPR/AED let you go through the online content now and then an in-person skills test within one year. Online-only options are also available if you don’t need certification for a job requirement. If you are taking a course to fulfill a job requirement, check with your employer so you know exactly which course you need.
