For nearly a century, the American Red Cross has prepared people to save lives through health and safety education and training. From first aid, CPR and bloodborne pathogens training to swimming and lifeguarding, and Babysitter's Training, American Red Cross Preparedness programs help people lead safer and healthier lives.
The Red Cross constantly strives to respond to the preparedness concerns of Americans at home, in school and in the workplace. Today's innovative programs also include teaching lay persons and professionals how to use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to save victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Millions of people enroll in American Red Cross health and safety courses every year.

Red Cross has been approved as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education by The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). The approval comes after an extensive application and vetting process of the American Red Cross and its courses by the organization, which was created in 1968 to ensure that education providers meet strict continuing education guidelines.
Certification by IACET means that nurses, social workers, recreation professionals, teachers and day care providers among others, can gain or maintain their license or certification by taking Red Cross courses in a variety of subjects, and obtaining Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for them. It also distinguishes the American Red Cross from other training providers.
Once training has been completed, continuing education units may be obtained online at www.redcross.org/store. Class participants should verify with their appropriate accrediting organization that CEUs received from taking Red Cross courses will be accepted.
