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 Jackson 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.
