The American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED course is currently unavailable. Please check back next semester. 

The purpose of the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED course is to help course participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac breathing and first aid emergencies. The courses in the program teach skills that participants need to know to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. Participants will be required to complete the online portion of the course prior to attending a skills session.
