• First Aid Training in Maryland

    First Aid training in Maryland from the American Red Cross can help you learn how to provide care to those suffering from burns, cuts, and other trauma while you wait for a medical professional to arrive. After successfully completing one of our online, in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session, you'll earn a two year certification, as well as access to refresher materials that can help keep the information you've learned fresh in your memory.

    Note: Although online-only participants can receive a 2-year certification, only those who complete an in-person or Simulated Learning course can earn full, OSHA-compliant certification.

    In Maryland, First Aid training for adults focuses on how you can best provide care to the adults, including teens, in your life. From cuts and burns to falls, broken bones and a myriad of other injuries, our courses cover it all so that you can gain the confidence, and skills, needed to help during times of crisis.

    Because children and babies have more delicate bodies and require specialized care, we offer First Aid classes in Maryland that focus specifically on providing care to the youngest among us. With detailed instruction on caring for conscious and unconscious children, and information on helping kids who have been injured in a variety of ways, we can give you the skills and confidence needed to provide care until trained medical professionals arrive.

    Even after taking one of our First Aid classes in Maryland, it's easy to lose your skills if they're not practiced regularly. In order to help keep the information you've learned fresh in your mind, we've created a simple step-by-step guide that you can print up and place on your refrigerator, in your car, in your bag or at your desk and review at any time.

    Once you complete your Maryland First Aid certification classes, your credentials will be valid for two years. In order to maintain your certification beyond the two-year period, we offer abbreviated First Aid renewal classes that allow you to stay up to date on the latest techniques. These classes should be taken within 30 days of your certification's expiration date, and will extend the life of your credentials by two additional years.

    At the American Red Cross we offer First Aid training in Maryland that can help you confidently provide care when your friends, family or neighbors need it most. In addition, we offer training classes and respond to emergencies in all 50 states and more than 180 countries worldwide. In order to ensure that everyone we train learns to deliver the most effective care, all of our training materials are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council.
