How to Assign American Red Cross Courses
To receive an official Red Cross certification, students must complete both the online and classroom-based portions of the course. All online components of the course must be completed prior to attending the classroom-based skills testing session.
To assign the online portion of the American Red Cross course, please begin on the Users tab of the LMS.
As with any manual assignment, you may select which user(s) you would like to assign the course to. If you would like to assign the course to an entire group, clicking the blue “Add Group to Selection” button will select the entire group for you. You may verify the number of users you have selected in the white box in the upper right.
Once you have selected your user(s), please click “Next.” This will take you to the Courses page.
On the Courses page, please locate the American Red Cross courses. You may do so by either searching for text, or by utilizing the “American Red Cross” tag.
You may click on the blue name of each course to read a brief summary on the course to determine which course may be right for you. Once you have decided, please select which course(s) you would like to assign by utilizing the checkbox on the far right. Then, click “Next.”
This will take you to the assignment summary page, where you may choose the assignment’s activation and due dates, as well as any email settings.
The American Red Cross courses may also be added to any Automatic Assigning training matrix schedule you may have.
To assign the offline portion of the American Red Cross courses, you must go to https://www.singlesourcehs.com/safetyskills-redcross or call 877-530-5990.
This will provide you with a form to fill out to schedule your in-person training for your learners. Only one form needs to be completed for your group. The in-person training portion will be administered by Single Source Health & Safety, and can take a few hours to complete. Single Source Health & Safety does request a two-week lead time for in-person training sessions, but will do their best to accommodate shorter notices.
Please note: Your learners must complete the online portion of the training before the in-person training. Please have them bring their certificates for the online portion to the in-person training.
How to Take American Red Cross Courses
Once the course has been assigned, it will display in your learner’s My Training tab as any other course would.
To launch the course, your learner will click on the blue name of the course. The course will then launch in a new window, just as other SafetySkills courses would. The course is also mobile and tablet friendly, allowing your learners to take this training on whichever device is easiest for them.
Please note: Unlike other SafetySkills courses, the American Red Cross courses will only bookmark after each mission, which requires the learner to complete both the narrative and question portions. If your learner attempts to save and close the course in the middle of a mission, only the last fully-completed mission will save as their progress.
How to Print Certificates for American Red Cross Courses
For the online portion, you may print a certificate upon completion of the online course by going to the “Completed Training” section of their My Training tab and selecting the option to view and print a certificate.
Certificates for the offline portion will be provided, via email, by Single Source Health & Safety upon completion of the in-person training. Certificates generally arrive within three days of the in-person training being completed.
