First Aid Classes in Morgantown
Accidents can happen at any age – which is why most of our Morgantown First Aid certification courses include detailed instruction on providing care to infants, children, and adults.

When it comes to first aid classes in Morgantown, the Red Cross has a wide range of options – including in-person, online and blended Simulation Learning classes, which combine online coursework with an in-person skills session. For those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, would like to have the opportunity to discuss topics with their instructor and their classmates, and generally learn better in a focused environment, our in-person classes are the best solution. Not only do they offer ample time for discussion, but during the skills session, you'll get personalized attention from your instructor who can help you perfect your skills and gain the confidence necessary for delivering care.
In addition to basic first aid classes, your local Red Cross also offers a wilderness first aid class in Morgantown. 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.
