First Aid Training in Minnesota
At the American Red Cross, we offer Minnesota first aid certification training classes so that you can learn how to help your friends, family and neighbors during medical emergencies. With courses available online, in person and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, finding a class that suits your schedule and your learning style is simple.
Created specifically for those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person first aid training in Minnesota gives you the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable instructors who can answer your questions and help you understand how and when to provide care. Courses include lecture and hands-on skills sessions, as well as plenty of time to ask questions and become comfortable with the techniques before testing for your certificate.
Simulation Learning courses combine self-paced, interactive learning with in-person skill sessions. This way, you can complete all of your required coursework on your schedule, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor during one of the Minnesota first aid training classes near you. Once both segments of the class have been successfully completed, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years.
Once you complete your Minnesota 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.
Even after taking one of our first aid classes in Minnesota, 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.
The American Red Cross not only delivers first aid training in Minnesota, but we also provide training to individuals and organizations in every state and more than 180 countries around the world. The training materials for our classes are developed experts in the field and are based on the latest and best in emergency science. In addition, all course materials and protocols are reviewed by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council and are updated as new, proven information becomes available.
