If you are seeking certification to meet the requirements for an internship, student teaching assignment, or job YOU NEED TO CHECK WITH YOUR SUPERVISOR TO DETERMINE THE EXACT TYPE OF CERTIFICATION YOU NEED. These trainings are meant for individuals to use in the workplace and schools. They are basic courses and do not meet any type of advanced or professional rescuer type of credentialing.
These classes meet OSHA Guidelines for First Aid Programs and combine lecture with interactive video demonstrations featuring emergency scenarios that are likely to occur in a variety of environments. Hands-on training to teach participants lifesaving skills is the basis of these courses.
Certification is awarded through the American Red Cross and is good for 2 years.
