When it comes to first aid, it's important to know how to treat both kids and adults. That's why, in our Portland 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 Portland 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.
At the Red Cross, we work to empower you with the most accurate, up-to-date information available. In order to ensure that you receive the best possible training, all of our courses and materials are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council. This means that whether you've signed up for first aid training in Portland, want to take the class online, or are traveling with a group to take the class in another city, you'll get the same accurate, proven information.
