Align with ProACT Academy to Teach and Report Classes

I’m Certified as a Red Cross Instructor, Now What?

Congratulations! American Red Cross Instructor Certification is the first step to being able to teach Red Cross classes. All instructors must be affiliated with a training provider that has a signed Training Provider Agreement with the Red Cross to offer training. Affiliation is also required for you to access the Instructor Portal view of the Red Cross Learning Center, which allows you to teach and report courses. If you teach for multiple organizations, you must be added to each organization’s Training Provider Agreement to be able to set up and report classes for that organization.
