Whether being certified in first aid is critical to your job or you're simply a good samaritan, it's important to know that your Red Cross certification is only valid for two years from its award date. However, with our convenient, abbreviated recertification classes, it's easy to renew your skills, refresh your memory, and maintain your credentials.

Because children and infants require special care during times of crisis, our first aid classes in Rochester include detailed information on helping kids who are sick or injured. This way, you can provide children with the care they need in a way that won't cause further damage to their growing bodies.

When it comes to first aid, it's important to know how to treat both kids and adults. That's why, in our Rochester first aid classes, we'll review the procedures for caring for adults separately from those that are applicable to kids. By doing so, our instructors make it easy to understand the differences when providing care so that you can help each person according to his or her needs.

After completing your first aid training in Rochester, you can use our fun, free refreshers to maintain your skills. Designed to be taken on your own schedule, our online refresher materials include quizzes, interactive games, activities and videos that can help you remember how to provide care when it's needed most. In order to keep your skills sharp, we recommend that you complete at least one refresher activity every three months throughout your two-year certification period.
