Sponsoring a Red Cross Course

From CPR, AED, and first aid training courses, to blood-borne pathogens training and community disaster preparedness education, American Red Cross courses will help you to be prepared for virtually any life-threatening situation.

First Aid/CPR/AED training courses combine lecture, demonstrations and PowerPoint with hands-on training in a format which is designed to not just memorize information for an exam, but rather to be able to actually use in the event of an emergency. Because the American Red Cross is a member of the OSHA Alliance, you can be sure your employees are receiving the highest quality training available to help prevent injuries, illnesses and fatalities in the workplace.

Build the program that works for your business using our modular curriculum. Below, you'll find our course guide which will tell you basic information such as course length, cost per participant, minimum and maximum number of participants per class, and if a group discount rate is available.

**The minimum number of students required for a course which takes place within 50 miles of Center for Wilderness Safety's headquarters in Sterling, VA is 6 students. All courses hosted more than 50 miles away from the CWS headquarters in Sterling, VA require a minimum of 12 students to host a course and may also require at minimum, two instructors. The maximum number of students may be expanded to no more than 24-30 students per class. Courses this large must be approved in advance.

 

Scheduling a Course

Most American Red Cross courses only take between four (4) and six (6) hours, and therefore are fairly easy to schedule. If your group or organization has space of its own, we will gladly come out to your location and offer on-site training. If you do not have a location arranged, we will be glad to work with you to help find a nearby solution.

We recommend scheduling your Red Cross health & safety course a minimum of four to six weeks prior to your desired course date. The absolute shortest time period we permit is 15 days prior to the course date, due to scheduling and logistics.

 

Course Costs & Fees

For all courses that are taught within driving distance of Sterling, Virginia, (between 20 and 500 miles from our base camp in Sterling, VA), we charge the current GSA rate of $0.51 per mile, both to and from your location for one vehicle. If the course is located within 50 miles of Sterling, VA, we do not charge mileage. We also request meals and lodging for our instructors from the evening before your course through the morning after your course.

If you are unable to provide housing and food, we request a $30 per Diem (per instructor/per day) for meals for the duration of the course; as well as reimbursement for any incurred lodging expenses. Our instructors are usually happy to do home-stays or rent a room at a local university or hostel. Depending on the course, overnight camping may also be acceptable.

The average cost per student, factoring in tuition, additional modules and instructor costs (meals, lodging & mileage) average out to be around $10-$30 above the base tuition. We encourage hosting organizations to also earn revenue through the cost of the course tuition by opening up courses to the public.

For courses more than 500 miles from our base camp in Sterling, VA, we ask that the sponsor pay at minimum, half of any airfare or train fares, as well as any meals and travel expenses incurred by the instructors en route to and from your course location. We also request the same amenities as mentioned above (meals & lodging during the course of the entire program).
