American Red Cross Full Service Training programs are ideal if your company or organization wants customized, convenient health and safety training which is brought to your location at a time that is convenient to you and your employees.

The American Red Cross Bay Area offers First Aid, CPR, and Childcare courses specifically designed for the workplace. The First Aid and CPR courses can help your company meet OSHA requirements and are a proven way to lessen workplace emergencies and know how to respond to them when they do occur. Our professional instructors are available to come to your site seven days a week.

The minimum billing amount for on-site training is for eight people. If you need to stick to a tighter budget, have your group attend our chapter-based classes. If your group needs first aid and safety training on a regular basis, you should also inquire about how to have representatives from your company or organization trained as Red Cross instructors who can then conduct trainings whenever your organization needs them.

If Full Service Training sounds like the right option for you, please contact Health and Safety Service at hsservice@usa.redcross.org or (415) 427-1515.
