AMERICAN RED CROSS SAFETY CLASSES

If you have questions regarding the classes listed below, please contact Paige McDaniel, Coordinator for Aquatics, at spmcdaniel@uga.edu

The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Blended Learning CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers course is to instruct those who have a duty to act (professional rescuers) in the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately to breathing and cardiac emergencies. This includes the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to care for a victim experiencing cardiac arrest. The blended learning option combines online learning with in-person skill sessions conducted by a Red Cross-certified instructor. Participants in blended learning courses acquire the same knowledge and skills as those in traditional classroom training courses.
