General Information, Courses Offered and Registration Information

The WRC is once again offering Adult CPR, First Aid & AED certification classes through the American Red Cross! All classes are offered through a Blended format, meaning the first part of the certification is done online while the second part of the certification is done in-person at the WRC. The online part takes a few hours to complete, while the in-person part takes about an hour to complete. Classes are open to all FIU faculty/staff ($65) & FIU students ($48).

Registration for courses is done on wrc.fiu.edu under the Certifications tile. The course date listed on the website is for the in-person part. Once a participant is signed up for an in-person class date, they will receive information on how to access the online portion of the class. Registration closes 5 days before the listed day and time of the in-person class date.

Online class information is sent by the instructor through the American Red Cross once a participant has registered for an in-person class date.
