• First Aid Training in North Carolina

    First Aid training in North Carolina 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 two-year certification, only those who complete an in-person or Simulated Learning course can earn full, OSHA-compliant certification.

    Designed for those who don't need full (OSHA-compliant) certification, our online First Aid training in North Carolina can be completed on your schedule. Perfect for parents, grandparents, siblings and good Samaritans, our online first aid courses give you all of the important information you'll need to provide care, as well as the opportunity to test your skills in an online environment.

    Because children and babies have more delicate bodies and require specialized care, we offer First Aid classes in North Carolina 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 North Carolina, 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 North Carolina 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.

    When you earn your North Carolina first aid certification from the American Red Cross, you'll gain the skills to confidently provide care to those in need. Our skilled, patient instructors will help you learn what to consider when providing care, and how to treat those in need as you wait for medical professionals to arrive. Our First Aid classes take just a few short hours to complete, but can mean all the difference during times of crisis. Find a class near you.
