This course includes all of the babysitting resources and training.

You will also receive a second certification by taking this course. The second certification is in pediatric first aid, CPR, and AED. This second course covers all of the necessary information needed to help a child experiencing a medical emergency while you are working.

This combined course is approximately 10 hours in duration.

Responding to Emergencies

The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Responding to Emergencies: Comprehensive 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 participants the knowledge and skills needed to give immediate care to an injured or ill person and to decide whether advanced medical care is needed. This program is designed primarily for use in secondary schools, colleges, universities, and other settings that require a curriculum of greater length than the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/ AED program.

The care steps outlined within this manual are consistent with the 2015 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) Consensus on Science with Treatment Recommendations for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and the 2015 American Heart Association and American Red Cross Guidelines for First Aid.

This course is approximately 30 hours in duration.

Wilderness and Remote First Aid

The Wilderness and Remote First Aid course provides individuals a foundation of first aid principles and skills to be able to respond to emergencies and give care in areas that do not have immediate emergency medical services (EMS) response.
This course is approximately 16 hours in duration.
