The Red Cross offers first aid training in Hickory that can not only make you a more capable citizen, but a more valuable employee. With our OSHA-compliant classes, which are available in in-person and Simulation Learning formats only, you can learn the skills necessary for responding to a wide range of first aid emergencies. From cuts and scrapes to burns, illnesses and a wide range of other injuries, our first aid classes deliver the information you need to help anyone, anywhere.
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 Hickory 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.
