First Aid Classes in Bangor
Accidents happen – all the time – and at the American Red Cross, we can help you learn how to handle them. From cuts and scrapes to choking emergencies and poisonings, burns and asthma emergencies to head, neck and spinal injuries, our First Aid classes cover it all – and more. Find out how to sign up for First Aid training in Bangor, and learn how you can become a source of care and comfort during emergencies.
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 Bangor. 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.

When it comes to first aid classes in Bangor, 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 Bangor 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.

In addition to basic first aid classes, your local Red Cross also offers a wilderness first aid class in Bangor. 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.
With your Bangor 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.
