Military: Choosing American Red Cross vs. American Heart Association
In December 2018, The Department of Defense (DOD) posted that only American Red Cross certifications will be allowed to be used on base. If your connected to the military, and required to have certification, it must be American Red Cross Certification.
If you working in community Medicine or local Hospitals they will require you to have the American Heart Association.
Check with your command if military as to which certification the require. This might mean you need both American Red Cross and American Heart Association certifications which CPR Safety Services can provide.

When it comes to CPR, it’s important to know how to treat both kids and adults. That’s why, unless you sign up for a class that focuses on one population, our CPR trainings cover the procedures/steps for caring for adults, as well as children. Although we will prepare you to deliver care when it’s needed most, the truth is, if you don’t use your skills regularly, you’re likely to lose them. So, to help prevent or mitigate loss of skills we offer online refresher materials that can help you retain the knowledge you’ve gained. In addition, we also provide you with access to a printable list of the basic steps for performing CPR. This way, you can keep the information you need right at your fingertips.
