We offer a variety of safety-related courses to our campus and beyond, in hopes of educating members of our community, and certifying individuals to be able to respond in case of an emergency. All courses are led by experienced Instructors, who are certified to teach by the American Red Cross. Courses are offered in a Blended Learning format, consisting of pre-course computer-based components, followed by on-site hands-on training and testing.
