In a news release Tuesday, the organization said more than 5 million people each year learn how to save a life in Red Cross training classes.
The courses will teach people how to perform CPR and use an AED, what to do if a person is choking, an dhow to prevent and respond to other emergencies until advanced medical help arrives.
Participants also will learn how to control bleeding as well as how to care for seizures and other sudden illnesses.
Red Cross training courses meet OSHA guidelines, feature hands-on skills practice and include two-year certifications. Also included are free digital materials and skill refreshers.
