Part of keeping our schools safe for everyone includes ensuring that those on campus can provide care when it's needed most. To that end, we offer CPR training in New Hampshire that not only delivers important training to educators, administrators and other school staff, but allows those who undergo our training to become instructors who can help other faculty members and students earn their own CPR certification.

The Red Cross delivers BLS classes in New Hampshire that allow you to provide important patient care when it's needed most. Throughout your training, you'll learn new techniques in scene safety and assessment, CPR/AED use for adults, children and infants, plus obstructed airways, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and teamwork, precautions, legal considerations, and more.
After completing your New Hampshire BLS certification, keeping your skills fresh is critical to providing quality care that helps improve patient outcomes. In order to help you stay sharp, we've developed online refresher activities that take just a few minutes to complete, but can make all the difference when you're in the field. In addition to our refresher materials, you'll also have access to the BLS handbook that you used in your training. With this, you can study a wide range of procedures and ensure that you're ready for anything.
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, works by checking the heart's rhythm, then delivering an electric shock to the heart of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs are the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. To learn how to use this important device, which is now readily available in office buildings, shopping centers, airports, sports stadiums, and more, sign up for AED classes in New Hampshire from the American Red Cross.
AEDs seem to be virtually everywhere - but do you know how and when to use one? If the answer is no (or even if it's maybe), then it's time to sign up for AED classes in New Hampshire. After all, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes - and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest reduces by approximately 10%. Fortunately, with CPR/AED training in New Hampshire, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
Child care licensing is regulated at the state level, often requires on-site visits from inspectors, and typically requires candidates to meet a wide range of highly specific criteria. At the American Red Cross, we do not license facilities, nor is our certification intended to meet state child care licensing requirements. Instead, our New Hampshire babysitting classes are designed to help older children and adults gain insights that allow them to responsibly care for children and infants inside and outside the home. These courses feature the latest in science- and evidence-based knowledge, but do not satisfy certification requirements from state agencies.
If you're interested in becoming a state-licensed child care provider, please contact the licensing agency in your area. However, if you'd like to learn how to provide quality care to the kids in your neighborhood, or your own family members, please explore the New Hampshire babysitter training opportunities available from the American Red Cross.
Designed for those who are 11 or older, our Babysitting Basics class delivers important information for anyone interested in starting a babysitting business. Available online only, it takes approximately four hours to complete, and includes science-based information on providing first aid, understanding child behavior, caring for children and infants, starting a babysitting business and more. After completing Babysitting Basics, you can take our other babysitting classes in New Hampshire, like Babysitter's Training or Advanced Child Care. You may also consider becoming certified in first aid and CPR - which can help you provide parents with greater peace of mind, and deliver even greater care to the children in your neighborhood.
Note: None of our New Hampshire babysitter training opportunities are intended as certification for state-licensed childcare providers and does not meet all state requirements for such certification.
At the Red Cross, first aid training in New Hampshire is available in three ways - online, in-person, and via our Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions. This way, you can learn your way - and take classes that suit your schedule. If you need an OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy OSHA requirements. However, if full-certification isn't required by your job or a volunteer organization, online-only courses may suit your needs. Find more information on the current New Hampshire first aid classes available.
By empowering you to provide care for infants, children and adults, you can truly be prepared to help - no matter who needs your assistance. That's why, in New Hampshire, pediatric first aid is included along with our adult care instructions. After all, small bodies with developing bones and organs do tend to be more delicate than those of adults, so precautions and/or actions will, and should, vary based on the age of the person who needs your assistance.
