All of our courses result in official certification from the American Red Cross. You will receive your digital certification via email within 1 week of your course. For more information on the digital certifications and how to obtain one if you lost yours please click here.
If you arrive more than 10 minutes after the start of the class, you will not be permitted to complete the class and obtain certification. You can sign up and pay for another class at a later date, however you will not receive a refund for the class you missed.
Our classes vary in refund policies due to different prerequisite and/or online content. Please be sure to read your desired classes refund policy before registering.
Wait list information
If a class is full then you can be added to a wait list. If spot(s) become available everyone on the wait list will be notified at once and the first one(s) to register will receive a spot. Unfortunately the spots usually only open up at the last minute which is why we open it up to everybody on the wait list rather than going down the list in order. There is also no way of knowing for sure if anything will become open.
To get on the wait list please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
