American Red Cross Blood Services & Charter Oak State College

American Red Cross

If you are an employee of the American Red Cross Blood Services division, you may have already earned up to 27 college credits for the Collections Staff Training Program or up to 31 college credits for the Product Manufacturing Training Program!

This means you may have already completed a big part of the credit requirements for an Associate or Bachelor's degree — about a year's worth of full-time college. It's a head start that can save you time and money in completing your degree.

Even if you don’t have this training, you may be able to get college credit for military training or EMT, RN, LPN, or phlebotomy credentials, just to name a few.
