American Red Cross Offering Continuing Education Credits
Date:11/5/2008

Easier for Professionals to Maintain Licensing or Certification

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Imagine gaining Continuing Education Credits (CEU'S) for completing an American Red Cross First Aid/CPR Class or learning about International Humanitarian Law? Now that can happen.

Red Cross has been approved as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education by The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). The approval comes after an extensive application and vetting process of the American Red Cross and its courses by the organization, which was created in 1968 to ensure that education providers meet strict continuing education guidelines.

Certification by IACET means that nurses, social workers, recreation professionals, teachers and day care providers among others, can gain or maintain their license or certification by taking Red Cross courses in a variety of subjects, and obtaining Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for them. It also distinguishes the American Red Cross from other training providers.

"It was important to get these courses accredited for those professionals needing CEUs," said Scott Conner, Senior Vice President, Preparedness and Health and Safety Services. "Across all lines of service, the American Red Cross prides itself on educating the public about many issues and it's certainly an added value to receive CEUs for taking our training courses."

Among the courses eligible for continuing education credits are Disaster Services courses dealing with First Aid and CPR/AED, Lifeguarding and Water Safety Instructors, Safety Training for Swim Coaches, Psychological First Aid during Disasters, and courses on International Humanitarian Law.

These classes are being offered at local chapters of the American Red Cross. Once training has been completed, continuing education units may be obtained online at http://www.r
