RED CROSS OFFERS A NEW WEB-BASED LEARNING PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS IN SONOMA & MENDOCINO COUNTIES (JANUARY)
American Red Cross, Sonoma & Mendocino Counties, is now offering a web-based CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) with AED (automated external defibrillator) and first aid class.
Web-based blended learning is a new program allowing students in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties to take CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) with AED (automated external defibrillator) and first aid, incorporating the convenience of online with practical, hands-on skills in the classroom. The blended learning approach allows students to learn at their own pace and still practice the physical CPR and first aid skills in a classroom setting with one of our certified instructors. Students complete the first portion online at their own convenience, and finish the second portion in the classroom at the American Red Cross, 5297 Aero Drive in Santa Rosa. The hands-on portion of the class takes place twice in January: Wednesday, January 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. or Saturday, January 31 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Students must bring proof of completion of the online portion when they attend the class on these dates.
