The JCC offers a variety of American Red Cross Training and classes.  Certification is obtained upon passing the necessary test put forth in the American Red Cross guidelines. Because we incur staffing costs for American Red Cross programming, we require a $35 non-refundable deposit at the time of registration for all Red Cross classes.
