• CPR Programs for Schools

    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. Our affordable and flexible CPR training makes it easy to meet your state’s CPR certification requirements so that all your trained students and personnel can deliver help when it's needed most.

    How it Works

    Red Cross CPR programs for schools start with a "Training Provider" agreement so you can teach and deliver Red Cross education and training programs to your staff, students and coaches. The Red Cross will train members in CPR and first aid – and provide them with instruction on how to effectively teach students these critical lifesaving skills.

    CPR Instruction:

    CPR school programs can be delivered in a variety of training formats including online or as instructor-led, including 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. For more information on the lifesaving programs that include:
