Obtaining first aid, CPR, and/or AED certification is important if:
First Aid, CPR or AED training is required for your work
You are a designated emergency responder at your work
You want to be prepared for a wide range of emergencies – either in your personal life or based on your participation in activities such as coaching, youth organizations, and others
You want the confidence of skills and experience when caring for young children or family members
Red Cross First Aid, CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automatic external defibrillator) training meets the needs of workplace responders, schools, professional responders and healthcare providers, as well as the general public.
