American Red Cross CPR classes take just a few short hours, but the skills you'll learn during the process can make all the difference to someone in need. Whether you're a medical professional who needs recertification, or you simply want to learn how to respond in the event of an emergency, our in-person, online, and best-in-class blended Simulation Learning courses make it easy to get CPR certified.
CPR Classes for the Way You Learn
- In Person: Led by knowledgeable instructors, our in-person courses combine lecture with hands-on skills sessions. Perfect for those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person classes give you ample time to ask questions and become comfortable with the latest techniques.
- Online: Through virtual instruction, these self-paced courses deliver CPR training that can help you understand how to respond to a cardiac or breathing emergency. After passing a learning assessment with a score of 80% or better, you will have successfully completed the course. However, when you choose an online CPR class you will not have the opportunity to demonstrate your skill proficiency to a certified instructor, and therefore may not meet the requirements for workplace safety certification.
- Simulation Learning: Using a combination of self-paced, interactive online CPR classes and in-class skill sessions, our groundbreaking Simulation Learning courses give you the ability to train on your schedule, and demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor.
