First Aid Classes in Raleigh
The Red Cross offers first aid training in Raleigh in three convenient ways: in-person, online, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Once you've successfully completed any of our First Aid classes, you'll receive a two-year certification, as well as access to a wide range of online refresher materials that can help keep what you've learned fresh in your memory
Note: Only in-person and Simulation Learning courses result in OSHA-compliant certification.
When you choose one of our in-person First Aid classes in Raleigh, you'll get personalized attention and the hands-on training you need to help someone in need. Delivered in a traditional classroom setting, these classes include lecture and skills training, as well as ample time for questions and discussion. Our in-person Raleigh first aid certification courses take just a few short hours to complete, but give you the skills and confidence needed to provide care during an emergency.
Our Simulation Learning courses are designed for those who want the convenience of online classes, the confidence that comes with hands-on experience, and full certification. After signing up for one of our blended Raleigh First Aid classes you simply need to complete the online coursework, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor. Once both sections have been successfully completed you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years.
After your First Aid training in Raleigh, it's important to keep the steps for providing care fresh in your memory. To help you remember the process correctly, we've developed a simple-to-review document that outlines the basics of First Aid care. Look at them online anytime, or print them up and keep them in a binder, at your desk, or on your refrigerator, and refer to them anytime you need a quick refresher.
In First Aid classes in Raleigh, Red Cross instructors will help you learn how to provide care for a wide range of injuries, including burns, joint, muscle and bone problems, head injuries and more. But before you learn how to offer help, you'll learn how to assess the scene to ensure that it's safe for you, and others, and determine the best approach for providing care.
When it comes to First Aid, it's important to know how to treat both kids and adults. That's why, in our Raleigh first aid classes, we'll review the procedures for caring for adults separately from those that are applicable to kids. By doing so, our instructors make it easy to understand the differences when providing care so that you can help each person according to his or her needs.
Because children and infants require special care during times of crisis, our First Aid classes in Raleigh include detailed information on helping kids who are sick or injured. This way, you can provide children with the care they need in a way that won't cause further damage to their growing bodies.
In Raleigh, First Aid classes from the American Red Cross are taught by local, knowledgeable professionals who can help you understand the latest science behind our methods, and learn how to administer care properly.
