Online Training: Getting Started

When you receive your confirmation email from the Red Cross, follow these instructions to get started with online training:


Before You Click: Remember that you will need to record the method you used to sign up. If you use a different method later, it will create a second profile that won’t have your certifications/history. We recommend using your email address and a password, and not your social accounts (for simplicity).



Click the Link: It will say “Please click here to create a new My Red Cross account to access your course information and online course component”
