Certification Classes

We offer American Red Cross classes at the SRWC! Our certified instructors will be teaching Adult CPR/AED/First Aid, Lifeguarding and Water Safety Instructor Classes.

Private classes can be taught if there are 4 or more people interested in the class. All classes will be in the SRWC Wet Classroom.

CPR/AED/First Aid for Adult

The purpose of the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/ AED program is to help participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies. The courses in this program teach skills that participants need to know to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. This is not a healthcare provider-equivalent class and does not cover pediatric situations. Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of this course.
