First Aid Classes in Concord
At the Red Cross, we believe that everyone should be well versed in providing first aid. After all, accidents happen – and having the ability to handle them with skillfully can make all the difference. That's why we offer First Aid training in Concord in three unique formats: online, in-person and via our blended Simulation Learning. This way, you can take the class that suits your schedule and your learning style best – and learn how to treat scrapes, cuts and burns, choking emergencies, head, neck and spinal injuries, and more. Find a class in your area.
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 Concord 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.

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 Concord. 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 delivering care during times of crisis, having the right supplies is almost as important has having the right skills. That's why all of our Concord first aid classes include information on what to stock in your first aid kit. By helping you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing the right care at the right moment, we can empower you to help anyone – including adults, infants, and children, when they need it most.
In addition to basic first aid classes, your local Red Cross also offers a wilderness first aid class in Concord. 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.
