Part of keeping our schools safe for everyone includes ensuring that those on campus can provide care when it's needed most. To that end, we offer CPR training in West Virginia that not only delivers important training to educators, administrators and other school staff, but allows those who undergo our training to become instructors who can help other faculty members and students earn their own CPR certification. For more information on these special CPR classes, visit https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/cpr/cpr-training/cpr-programs-for-schools.
The Red Cross offers CPR renewal classes, as well as CPR recertification courses, in West Virginia. These courses allow you to refresh your memory, renew your skills and stay up to date on the latest techniques. Our CPR renewal courses are designed for those whose credentials are still valid but near expiration. These classes are delivered in less time than standard CPR classes, and allow you to maintain certification for an additional two years. If your CPR certification has lapsed, you'll need to register for a full-length CPR class in order to maintain certification. Find a recertification class or a CPR renewal course in West Virginia, and get training you need to maintain your credentials.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) seem to be virtually everywhere - in schools and offices, airports, sports stadiums, boutiques and malls. But do you know how and when to use one? If the answer is no (or even if it's maybe), then it's time to sign up for AED classes in West Virginia. After all, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes - and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest reduces by approximately 10%. Fortunately, with CPR/AED training in West Virginia, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
After completing your Red Cross AED training in West Virginia, our refresher materials can help you maintain your skills so that you can respond appropriately and confidently during times of crisis. Refresher materials take just a few short minutes to use, but by keeping your memory (and your skills) sharp, they can mean all the difference to someone in need.
First Aid Training
The American Red Cross offers first aid classes in West Virginia that can help you prepare for the unexpected. Our training includes the latest evidence-based procedures so you can provide care to adults, children, and infants during times of need. Classes include instruction on caring for others during asthma attacks, anaphylaxis, choking, external bleeding, and heart attacks, as well as caring for those with burns, plus a wide range of other emergencies.
Note: Some classes focus only on adult care, so please be aware when scheduling your first aid training in West Virginia.
If you don't need full, OSHA-compliant first aid certification, our online learning courses can help you get the information you need from the comfort of your home. This type of Red Cross training is conducted entirely online and can be taken at your convenience. It covers the same information as our in-person course, including providing care to adults and children suffering from burns, heart attack, external bleeding, and more - but doesn't give you the opportunity to practice your skills in a real-world setting. If hands-on experience is important to you, you may choose to opt for an in-person or blended Simulation Learning course, which combines online learning with an in-person skills session. Take a look at the current list of in-person and online first aid training in West Virginia, and choose the right option for the way you learn.
