90 minute online training course


In an emergency, bystanders can be a critical lifeline until professionals arrive, yet nearly half of U.S. adults are unprepared to help in a medical crisis, according to a recent survey from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). However, four in five adults (81%) said they would be willing to help in an emergency if they took a training course.


The American Red Cross and ACEP are proud to release the new “Until Help Arrives” course, designed to educate and empower bystanders to take action and provide lifesaving care if they are first on the scene during an emergency. This is a non-certification course.

Online 90 minute course covers:

  • Hands-only CPR (no breaths)
  • Automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • Choking first aid
  • Severe bleeding control, including use of a tourniquet
  • Administering naloxone for an opioid overdose
