Many of us are trying to use our time at home to acquire new skills. Taking an online-only course through the Red Cross is an excellent option!
Whether you want to learn something new, review a previously taken course or simply expand your knowledge, now is a great time to do so.
While you can register directly through the Red Cross website, as a certified Red Cross instructor I am able to offer you these courses at the discounted prices listed below. Let me know what you would like to take and I can register you for any of these courses.
Bloodborne Pathogens $28 Anaphylaxis and Epinephrine Auto-Injector $28 First Aid Health and Safety for Coaches $38 First Aid for Severe Bleeding $25 First Aid for Opioid Overdoses $25 Cat and Dog First Aid $23 First Aid $28 *Adult CPR/AED $28 *Adult First Aid/CPR/AED $28 *Adult, Child and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED $28 *Child and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED $28 Babysitter Basics $33 Lifeguard Management $70
*While each course includes an official certificate, it will state “Online-only.” If you need one of these certifications for a job, ask your employer if they prefer you take a Virtual Testing or Provisional course instead. I will be happy to set up either one for you.
•The Provisional courses require you to be tested in-person within 90 days of completing the online material. •The Virtual Testing courses require you to pick up and return manikins and practice AED devices from/to my Silver Spring home. The skills test takes place through Zoom, so that you can earn your certification right away.
The two courses below are free, non-interactive slideshows, but very informative. The Water Safety is especially important for those using backyard pools. For more Water Safety tips, download the Red Cross Swim App from the Apple Store or Google Play.
