• CPR Programs for Schools

    Because keeping your students safe is everyone's job, we've created CPR programs for schools that allow educators, administrators and other staff members to become instructors who can deliver training to students and faculty. This way, all of your trained students and personnel can deliver help when it's needed most.

    How it Works

    Red Cross CPR programs for schools start with an "authorized provider" agreement that guarantees the school will adopt Red Cross training exclusively for its health and safety training needs. As part of this agreement, the Red Cross will train adult faculty members in CPR and first aid – and provide them with instruction on how to effectively teach students those same skills.

    Note: Red Cross CPR programs schools waive student learner fees, however instructor training fees still apply.

    CPR Instruction:

    CPR school programs focus on a hands-only approach to CPR. This type of cardiopulmonary resuscitation is generally recommended for use on teens and adults who suddenly collapse. It's easy to learn, easy to teach, and can help your faculty and students save a life.

    CPR training certification is not provided through this course.

    Additional Types of Training

    In addition to CPR, the Red Cross can deliver a wide range of digital training to schools' selected health and safety educators, as well as digital programs for teachers. Programs currently available include:

    • First Aid
    • Learn to Swim
    • Ready Rating (a preparedness program for schools)
    • Scrubby Bear (a personal hygiene program)
    • Whale Tales (a water safety program)
