• First Aid Classes in Silver Spring

    At the Red Cross, we want your training to be interesting and informative, and to easily fit into your schedule. That's why in Silver Spring, our First Aid classes are offered at a variety of convenient times and locations. Delivered by experts in a relaxed setting, they take just a few short hours to complete but still offer ample time for questions and personalized instruction on the techniques used when providing care.

    At the American Red Cross, our First Aid classes in Silver Spring will help you learn how to care for yourself and others, including children, during an emergency. When you sign up for one of our in-person or blended Simulation Learning classes, you'll hear from knowledgeable instructors and have the opportunity to practice your skills in a real-world setting, and gain valuable feedback. Meanwhile, our online-only first-aid training gives you access to the same information, but in lieu of a skills session, you'll complete several activities that will help you test your decision-making skills and better understand what to do and when.

    When it comes to First Aid, it's important to know how to treat both kids and adults. That's why, in our Silver Spring First Aid classes, we'll review the procedures for caring for adults separately from those that are applicable to kids. By doing so, our instructors make it easy to understand the differences when providing care so that you can help each person according to his or her needs.

    Because children and infants require special care during times of crisis, our First Aid classes in Silver Spring include detailed information on helping kids who are sick or injured. This way, you can provide children with the care they need in a way that won't cause further damage to their growing bodies.

    Make your workplace safer for everyone. With First Aid classes in Silver Spring, you can give your staff OSHA-compliant training. Best of all, you can even arrange for on-site classes, so your employees won't have to travel elsewhere for a class. Our expert instructors can come to you and teach your teams the latest techniques, including how to care for cuts and burns, muscle, bone and joint problems, and more. In addition, our first aid classes include sections on CPR and AED usage, so your employees can become certified in all three in a single day – and make your office, store, factory, or job site, safer for everyone.

    When you successfully complete First Aid training in Silver Spring from the American Red Cross, you'll receive a certificate that's valid for two years, as well access to refresher materials that you can refer to online any time. This way, you can keep your skills sharp and your memory fresh. In addition, all of your Red Cross certificates are available digitally, and include unique ID and QR codes that employers and volunteer organizations can use to validate your credentials.

    Note: Online-only courses do not include in-person skills sessions. To receive full OSHA-compliant certification, please enroll in an in-person or Simulation Learning course.
