FAQs

  1. American Red Cross courses will meet in the lobby of UVAC, at their designated time, unless otherwise directed.
  2. E-learning materials will be disseminated 7 days prior to the course. E-learning materials come from phsSALESFORCE and often end up in your spam folder. If you do not receive your e- learning materials, please contact Ashley Ellis at [email protected] for assistance.
  3. Please utilize Google Chrome for your e-learning materials as other platforms do not interface well.
  4. E-learning materials take between 2-7 hours to complete depending on the course.
  5. You must show proof of e-learning completion in order to gain admittance into the class. The Red Cross system is designed to show instructors you progress, however, it is not always accurate. Please screenshot your completion certificate at the end of the course.
  6. As part of your class, you will receive a digital copy of the course handbook.
  7. You MUST attend the scheduled class in its entirety.
  8. Be prepared-bring a drink and a snack (or lunch if you are taking a lifeguard course). Glass containers are prohibited on UVAC premises.
  9. For the lifeguard course, specifically, a swimsuit is required. Please make sure that it is secure.
  10. Also for the lifeguard class, bring a few changes of clothes and a few towels. This will make you more comfortable.
