First Aid Classes in Memphis
Accidents can happen at any age – which is why most of our Memphis First Aid certification courses include detailed instruction on providing care to infants, children, and adults. Led by experienced, licensed instructors, our classes include the latest proven science and techniques for delivering care to people of all ages.
Note: Some courses focus on providing care to adults only. Please check the course descriptions for details.
The Red Cross offers first aid training in Memphis 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 Memphis 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 Memphis. 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.
When it comes to delivering care during times of crisis, having the right supplies is almost as important has having the right skills. That's why all of our Memphis first aid classes include information on what to stock in your first aid kit. By helping you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing the right care at the right moment, we can empower you to help anyone – including adults, infants, and children, when they need it most.
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 Memphis is complete, your certification will be valid for an additional two years.
