When it comes to first aid classes in Birmingham, the Red Cross has a wide range of options – including in-person, online and blended Simulation Learning classes, which combine online coursework with an in-person skills session. For those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, would like to have the opportunity to discuss topics with their instructor and their classmates, and generally learn better in a focused environment, our in-person classes are the best solution. Not only do they offer ample time for discussion, but during the skills session, you'll get personalized attention from your instructor who can help you perfect your skills and gain the confidence necessary for delivering care.
If you don't need OSHA-compliant certification and either have a challenging schedule or simply learn best in an online environment, opting for one of our online first aid trainings in Birmingham may be the solution you've been looking for. All of our online classes provide the same coursework and "lecture" materials as our traditional and Simulation Learning courses, but in lieu of a hands-on skills session they give you a series of online activities that will test your knowledge and skills. And although it won't be quite the same experience, you'll be able to fully understand the techniques described in class – and by the end, you'll have the confidence to apply them in a real-world setting.
