• First Aid Training in Ohio

    At the Red Cross we know how busy you are. That's why we've developed first aid classes in Ohio 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 Ohio 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 Ohio 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.

    Even after taking one of our first aid classes in Ohio, it's easy to lose your skills if they're not practiced regularly. In order to help keep the information you've learned fresh in your mind, we've created a simple step-by-step guide that you can print up and place on your refrigerator, in your car, in your bag or at your desk and review at any time.

    In order to become fully certified in first aid by the American Red Cross, you must successfully complete an in-person class or Simulation Learning course taught by Red Cross instructors. In Ohio, first aid training opportunities are available in dozens of convenient locations throughout the state, making it easy to find a class that's near your home, school or office. Courses are also available in an online-only format, however they may not meet your employer's requirements for workplace safety.

    The American Red Cross not only delivers first aid training in Ohio, 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.
