American Red Cross first aid, CPR and AED programs are designed to help you learn— and remember— valuable lifesaving skills and knowledge. We translate the consensus of medical science into practical, easy-to-understand information for the American public.

Red Cross first aid, CPR and AED programs are available for any age group and can be tailored to the needs of specific groups and individuals. Whether you work with children, want training for employees, are a professional rescuer, or simply want to know how to help in an emergency, the American Red Cross has a program for you.



For Your Community

For almost a century, the American Red Cross has trained tens of millions of people in first aid and CPR. Now we've expanded our programs to include teaching people to use AEDs -- automated external defibrillators. With American Red Cross training, you can feel confident that if an emergency occurs, you'll know what to do.

Community First Aid and Safety includes First Aid Basics, Adult CPR, and Infant and Child CPR. The course components can be taken individually or in any combination.

First Aid for Children Today (F.A.C.T.) The F.A.C.T. Critter Clan Family of multicultural animal characters leads children on a path of discovery. Kids ages 5-8 learn about about ways to be aware of dangers, how to prevent them, and how to respond to them if necessary.

Basic Aid Training (B.A.T.) introduces 8-12 year-olds to the emergency action steps, check, call, care and to first aid procedures. An activity book with puzzles and games teaches children how to prevent injuries and what to do in an emergency.

Pet First Aid is a handy reference guide for cat and dog emergencies. Created by the American Red Cross and The Humane Society of the United States, Pet First Aid provides assistance to people whose pets are ill or injured.

First Aid - Responding to Emergencies is available through many local colleges and universities. The course uses lecture, discussion and simulated emergency situations to deliver information on recognizing and caring for many different types of emergencies.

Sport Safety Training teaches coaches how to prevent, prepare for, and respond to sports-related injuries and emergencies. Suitable for coaches working with any level of athletics from children to adults.
