CPR & First Aid - Lay Responder


 We are pleased to now offer all of our CPR/AED and First Aid for Lay Responder courses in a “Blended Learning” format. This course provides online learning with in-person skills sessions conducted by an American Red Cross instructor.


Online Session (2 hours) The online session program content includes videos, lesson narration and special features. In order to move on to the in-person session, students must pass the assessment at the end of the online session and should print a copy of their online completion certification to submit to the instructor.  *Online portion must be completed prior to attending the skills session or the participant will be unable to attend.*


In-Person Session (1.5 hours) One session must be attended.  Once the online session has been successfully completed, students practice skills and are assessed by the instructor during the in-person skills session.


Certificate is earned upon completion of both the online and in-person sessions.

To register: Fill out the registration form below.  You will be sent a web link to the American Red Cross site where you will pay for the course and complete the online session.




Adult CPR/AED for the Lay Responder


The Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid for the Lay Responder course teaches you how to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults, children, and infants; how to take basic disease transmission precautions, recognize and care for bleeding, wounds, and sudden illness, how to immobilize muscle, bone and joint injuries, care for head, neck, back injuries, and heat and cold emergencies.  Certificate is valid for two years.
