VIRTUAL learning

What is Virtual Learning?

The American Red Cross offers two remote/contactless class options. "Online Only" courses provide a simple and inexpensive way to learn lifelong skills. Taken entirely online only, these courses do not include the opportunity for you to demonstrate skill proficiency to a certified instructor, and therefore may not meet requirements for workplace safety certification.

"Virtual Learning" courses do provide a remote skills assesment with a certified instructor and meet OSHA requirements for traditional certification. Featuring award-winning simulation learning, the American Red Cross virtual blended learning programs combine self-paced, interactive online instruction and virtual classroom skills sessions. Blended Learning courses allow you to learn online first, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor… in this case virtually!

How does it work?

1. Schedule your preferred virtual skills session below.

2. We will send you a CPR training kit rental via mail.

3. Complete the online course prior to your virtual skill session.

4. Attend your scheduled skills session with one of our American Red Cross instructors.


NOTE: After your class, using FREE pre-paid postage, simply re-pack the manikins, tape up the box, apply the shipping label and return! You must return your CPR training kit immediately to receive a certification and avoid late fees.

To better serve our students, you must return your CPR box within 4 days. Your certification will be processed upon return. We calculate additional rental fees based on the post-mark when the box is received. Additional fees will apply per day for late returns.
