American Red Cross CPR/AED and First Aid Certifications

Class Policies for Safety and Prevention
  • All American Red Cross courses offered through Campus Recreation will be taken through the blended learning course delivery. All courses will follow modifications provided through an extensive document from American Red Cross that provides guidelines such as the following:
    • Individuals must remain 6 feet apart from one another.
    • All students and instructors in the course will be provided their own equipment throughout the course.
    • Masks and gloves will be required throughout the in-person section of the course.
    • Students and instructors will wash hands before the class starts and between any breaks.
  • Various modifications will occur throughout portions of the class due to physical touching limitations.
  • Patrons will be encouraged to inform the instructor if there is a situation/skill that is outside of the patron’s comfort level and the instructor will offer modifications where possible.


Learn the skills necessary to prevent, recognize and provide care for injuries and sudden illnesses until advanced medical personnel arrive.

Note: This certification is not designed for nursing students or individuals working in the hospital setting.
