Red Cross to Train Those Wishing to Become First Aid and CPR Instructors March 18-19

Emergencies happen every day, and in most cases, the difference between a life saved and a life lost may depend on whether care was administered in seconds and not minutes. In southern Nevada, The American Red Cross teaches over 14,000 people a year lifesaving skills like First Aid, CPR, and Aquatic Safety.

In order to make the community safer and teach these lifesaving skills to more people, the Red Cross is seeking individuals to become First Aid and CPR licensed instructors. On March 18-19, the Red Cross is offering a blended-learning course designed to train candidates to teach American Red Cross First Aid, CPR and Aquatics courses.

Red Cross certified instructors can work within their organizations to teach lifesaving skills or they might choose to work as a Red Cross “Licensed Training Provider,” or LTP.  This advanced training creates an opportunity for an LTP to start a business that teaches First Aid and CPR to other people. Business applications that are approved for this unique opportunity become American Red Cross LTPs who teach Red Cross lifesaving curriculum.

People interested in signing up can register to take the course here.
