The United States Sailing Association has teamed up with the American Red Cross to provide an online training program.

All U.S. Sailing instructor training programs — including all small boat levels, windsurfing, powerboat, and keelboat programs — require CPR and First Aid certification. The online training program offered through the Red Cross provides training for instructors at all levels.

After taking the online course, participants will still have to do a practical skill check before obtaining the Red Cross certification.

In addition to the American Red Cross CPR and First Aid certification, U.S. Sailing accepts similar certification from numerous other U.S. Coast Guard-approved local and national organizations, most of which do not offer online courses.

Participants can sign up by visiting www.ussailing.org/training and clicking on the Red Cross Online Training button.
