As a business owner or manager, you know that keeping your workplace safe is vital to creating an environment where people can thrive. And along with HR policies that support all of your employees, having trained staff who can help when someone on your team suffers an illness or injury can go a long way toward creating a space that's safe. To that end, the Red Cross offers OSHA-compliant first aid classes in Wichita that can help your entire team (or just a few employees) learn how to provide care for someone suffering from cuts, burns, scrapes, sudden illness and more. These courses are available in person or in a blended format that combines online coursework with an in-person skills session – so finding a format that suits your staff is simple. For details on all of the OSHA-compliant training available in your area, review our newest class schedule.
When you have a family, it's everyone's responsibility to know how to help when it's needed most. That's why we recommend that all family members, including the young, old, and middle aged, enroll in one of our first aid classes in Wichita. With options available online, in person and via our blended Simulation Learning, no matter what your schedule may be or how you learn best, you can find a class that suits your needs. If you'd like to enroll in an in-person class as a family, you can do so by signing up for the same course individually, or by registering for group training.
Note: Most students are aged 16 or older, but younger students are also welcome to train with the Red Cross.
At the Red Cross we offer first aid classes that focus on care for adults only, but we also offer courses that allow you to provide care to ill or injured adults, children and infants. In general, we recommend that most people select adult and pediatric first aid training in Wichita. Not only will this type of class give you all of the information you need to care for adults, but with the skills and knowledge necessary for providing care to children and infants, you can become a more capable, more responsible family member, employee and citizen. For more information on all of the first aid classes available in your area, check our newest course schedule.
When it comes to delivering care during times of crisis, having the right supplies is almost as important has having the right skills. That's why all of our Wichita first aid classes include information on what to stock in your first aid kit. By helping you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing the right care at the right moment, we can empower you to help anyone – including adults, infants, and children, when they need it most.
In addition to offering first aid training in Wichita, the Red Cross also delivers a wide range of online, in-person, and blended Simulation Learning courses that can help you meet your personal and professional goals. From CPR and AED use, to Basic Life Support courses, our local experts will be here for you when you're ready for more. Check our newest class schedule and discover even more ways to train.
With your Wichita first aid training complete, your certification will be valid for two years. However, because skills that aren't used regularly are easy to forget, we encourage you to use our online refresher materials. Featuring interactive games, quizzes, online activities and videos, they allow you to test your skills regularly – so you can stay ready to help when it's needed most. It's just one of the many benefits of training with the American Red Cross. Check out our Refresher Center for details.
