In addition to basic first aid classes, your local Red Cross also offers a wilderness first aid class in Baton Rouge. Designed for scouts and scout leaders, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who works or spends time in remote environments, our wilderness first aid certification course covers advanced skills, like primary and secondary assessments, head/brain, neck and spinal injuries, hypothermia, heat-related illness, altitude-related illness, burns, allergies and anaphylaxis, bone and joint injuries, wounds and wound infection, and more. Upon successful completion of the class, you'll receive a two-year certification.
Note: Course materials are based on the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid Curriculum and Doctrine Guidelines, and align with OSHA's Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs.
As a business owner or manager, you know that keeping your workplace safe is vital to creating an environment where people can thrive.

To that end, the Red Cross offers OSHA-compliant first aid classes in Baton Rouge 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.
