• CPR Classes Online

    Learn CPR, on your schedule. Classes from the American Red Cross take only a few short hours, but can help you save a life when every second counts. Designed for coaches, parents, adults and teenagers, our online CPR classes make it easy to gain the skills needed to respond during cardiac or breathing emergencies. Taken entirely online, these courses do not include the opportunity for you to demonstrate skill proficiency to a certified instructor, and therefore may not meet requirements for workplace safety certification. If you must complete a CPR class that allows you to do so, check out our blended learning and classroom-based courses.

    How Online CPR Classes Work

    At the American Red Cross, CPR online courses are simple to access and easy to complete. All that's required is a willingness to learn, internet access, and a laptop, desktop computer, tablet or smartphone. All you'll have to do to get started is sign up for a course. After that, you can begin your class work at any time.

    Online CPR courses are divided into a number of highly interactive modules, which you can take in virtually any order. And with unlimited two-year access to the course materials, you can take your time getting through class, or complete all of the modules at once, then revisit the materials and refresh your skills as needed. It's all up to you. Here is a list of all online CPR training classes.
