• First Aid Training in Connecticut

    At the Red Cross we know how busy you are. That's why we've developed first aid classes in Connecticut that are easy to fit into your schedule. Training takes just a few short hours and can be completed online, in person or in a blended format that combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. This way, you can learn first aid when and where it suits you best, and provide care when it's needed most.

    Created specifically for those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person first aid training in Connecticut gives you the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable instructors who can answer your questions and help you understand how and when to provide care. Courses include lecture and hands-on skills sessions, as well as plenty of time to ask questions and become comfortable with the techniques before testing for your certificate.

    Simulation Learning courses combine self-paced, interactive learning with in-person skill sessions. This way, you can complete all of your required coursework on your schedule, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor during one of the Connecticut first aid training classes near you. Once both segments of the class have been successfully completed, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years.

    Designed for those who don't need full (OSHA-compliant) certification, our online first aid training in Connecticut can be completed on your schedule. Perfect for parents, grandparents, siblings and good Samaritans, our online first aid courses give you all of the important information you'll need to provide care, as well as the opportunity to test your skills in an online environment.

    In Connecticut, first aid training for adults focuses on how you can best provide care to the adults, including teens, in your life. From cuts and burns to falls, broken bones and a myriad of other injuries, our courses cover it all so that you can gain the confidence, and skills, needed to help during times of crisis.

    Because children and babies have more delicate bodies and require specialized care, we offer first aid classes in Connecticut that focus specifically on providing care to the youngest among us. With detailed instruction on caring for conscious and unconscious children, and information on helping kids who have been injured in a variety of ways, we can give you the skills and confidence needed to provide care until trained medical professionals arrive.

    Once you complete your Connecticut first aid certification classes, your credentials will be valid for two years. In order to maintain your certification beyond the two-year period, we offer abbreviated first aid renewal classes that allow you to stay up to date on the latest techniques. These classes should be taken within 30 days of your certification's expiration date, and will extend the life of your credentials by two additional years.

    The American Red Cross not only delivers first aid training in Connecticut, but we also provide training to individuals and organizations in every state and more than 180 countries around the world. The training materials for our classes are developed experts in the field and are based on the latest and best in emergency science. In addition, all course materials and protocols are reviewed by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council and are updated as new, proven information becomes available.
