CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer
The purpose of the American Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and Health Care Providers program is to train professional level rescuers to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults, children and infants until more advanced medical personnel take over.
The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over.
