Review and Challenge Courses

Review Courses

The purpose of a review course is to provide individuals with the opportunity to review the course content within a formal class setting. The participants will view the video segments and have the opportunity to practice and perform the skills for evaluation and complete the written exams for the courses being reviewed. To be eligible to participate in a review course the participant must possess a current American Red Cross certificate. Non-certificate holders may not participate in the review course option.

Challenge Courses

The purpose of a challenge course is to provide individuals with the opportunity to demonstrate their skill and knowledge competency outside of the formal class setting. The participant has sole responsibility in preparing for the knowledge and skills tests. Anyone is eligible to participate in the challenge. Individuals who do not hold a current American Red Cross certificate (or equivalent) may participate in the challenge option one time only. Individuals who possess a current American Red Cross certificate(s) (or equivalent) may challenge as often as they like, as long as the certificate(s) remain current.
