American Red Cross CPR training classes give you the information and the skills you need to help adults, children and infants during breathing and cardiac emergencies. Whether you choose in-person or blended learning CPR training, our world-class instructors deliver the most up-to-date information that's engaging and effective.
CPR certification takes just a few short hours, but can help you add years to someone's life. Successful completion of an in-person or blended learning course gives you a two-year certification in adult and/or pediatric CPR.
With our in-person classes or our award-winning blended learning opportunities, it's easy to find a class that suits your schedule and your learning style.
Our online CPR courses educate you on how to respond to cardiac emergencies. But remember, hands-on skills training is needed if you need to satisfy a workplace training requirement.
If you've already been through Red Cross CPR training but need to renew your certification, you can do so in an abbreviated class designed to refresh your skills and test your knowledge.
Teachers and administrators can get the CPR training they need to help their students during times of crisis, and gain the skills necessary to teach students how to administer hands-only CPR themselves.
American Red Cross CPR training for healthcare providers delivers evidence-based learning in the classroom and online.
