THE ROLE OF THE RED CROSS AUTHORIZED PROVIDER
Authorized providers have a long history of working with the Red Cross to provide training and information in first aid and CPR, swimming and water safety, and caregiving. Authorized providers are collaborators with the Red Cross in providing quality Health and Safety Services training in local communities. Whether providing training for their own employees, volunteers, clients or members of the community, authorized providers have an obligation to provide the highest quality training possible.
As an authorized provider you have agreed, through the Authorized Provider Agreement, to provide American Red Cross instructional programs in accordance with the standards and objectives of the program you desire to offer. The Authorized Provider Agreement provides an outline of the mutual expectations, rights and responsibilities of both the Red Cross chapter and the authorized provider. Following the guidelines ensures the integrity of American Red Cross programs and protects all parties involved—the authorized provider, the Red Cross and the instructor. The agreement also outlines in writing how you will do business with the Red Cross.
