First Aid Training in Maine
In Maine, First Aid certification classes are available for anyone who has an interest in providing care during times of crisis. With in-person, and blended Simulation Learning classes, we can help you receive an OSHA-compliant certification for your job, or simply help you reach your goals. And with an online class, even if you have a busy schedule or can't make it into a class, you can still learn the information and techniques you need to help during times of crisis. We even offer Continuing Education Units for medical professionals and first responders. Regardless of the type of certification you need – or how you learn best – we can help you gain the skills and confidence to deliver care to infants, children and adults when they need it most.
If full, OSHA-compliant first aid certification isn't important for your job, or you don't necessarily want to participate in an in-person skills session, then our first aid training online in Maine may just what you need. Our online courses feature the same up-to-date, science-based information as our in-person courses, but instead of honing your skills under the tutelage of an instructor, your skills are developed through a series of interactive activities. Best of all, because these courses can be completed all in one sitting or over a period of several days, you won't have to adjust your schedule to accommodate your class – simply start (and finish) it online when it suits you best.
The benefits of learning first aid go far beyond having the skills to respond during times of crisis (though that is certainly the biggest benefit, and often the most significant reason people sign up for first aid classes in Maine). In fact, your training can help you grow and develop in many ways. For instance, it can help you gain confidence, be better prepared as a parent, partner, neighbor, friend or co-worker, set yourself apart when applying for a job, inspire others to learn first aid, or even inspire you to delve deeper into medicine and volunteer for a new organization or change careers. Sign up for one of our first aid classes in Maine and discover what it can do for you.
In Maine, first aid recertification classes allow you to renew your skills, learn the latest techniques and can help keep your memory fresh – so you're prepared to help when it's needed most. Our abbreviated renewal courses are designed specifically for those with credentials that are valid but nearing their expiration. They take less time to complete than our standard first aid classes, but allow you to maintain your certification for an additional two years.
When you take a first aid class in Maine, you'll learn to provide care when, and how, it's needed most. Through your local Red Cross chapter, you can gain critical information about helping infants, children and adults during times of crisis, and learn proper procedures for delivering care that not only helps improve "patient" outcomes, but can help keep you safe, as well. Of course, after your class has ended, we'll still be there for you. With refresher materials and a handy app, you can not only test your skills, but get instant access to information on handling the most common first aid emergencies.
At the Red Cross, we believe that learning can take place at any age – and should continue throughout your life. That's why we offer classes for everyone. From BLS training and CPR classes for adults, and AED training, in Maine we make it easy for people of all ages and interests to learn something new.
