American Red Cross Emergency Medical Response Training Course Information
The American Red Cross offers a variety of training courses to help people learn emergency medical response skills. These skills can be used in a variety of situations, such as when responding to a natural disaster or during a medical emergency. The course is designed for people with little or no medical training, and it covers topics such as how to provide CPR, how to use an AED, and how to treat common injuries.
The course is divided into three parts: online learning, in-person skills sessions, and a final exam. The online learning portion of the course can be completed at your own pace and must be finished before attending the in-person skills sessions. The in-person skills sessions will be held at a local Red Cross chapter or affiliate, and you must complete all three sessions to receive certification. The final exam is taken online.
The online learning portion of the course is divided into four modules: Introduction to Emergency Medical Response, Basic First Aid, Managing an Emergency Medical Response Program, and Review and Final Exam. Each module must be completed before moving on to the next one. You will have access to the course materials for one year from the date of purchase.
