In Providence, first aid classes from the American Red Cross take just a few short hours to complete, but can make all the difference to someone in need. That's because during our courses you'll not only learn how to provide care for minor injuries like small cuts and scrapes, but how to help when someone is suffering from a more serious bone, muscle or joint injury, a bug or snake bite, a sting, burns, temperature-related illnesses, and so much more. For complete information on the first aid classes available in your area, check out our newest course schedule – and learn how to help your family, friends and fellow citizens during times of crisis.
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 Providence. 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.

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 Providence 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.

In addition to basic first aid classes, your local Red Cross also offers a wilderness first aid class in Providence. 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.
Red Cross first aid certifications are valid for two years. If your certification is within 30 days of expiring, you can renew it by enrolling in one of our first aid renewal classes. These abbreviated courses allow you to learn the latest techniques and can help keep your memory fresh – so that during times of need, you're ready to respond. Once your first aid training in Providence is complete, your certification will be valid for an additional two years.
