Getting an American Red Cross First Aid Training

If your desire is to help people who are in need of an emergency medical response, then getting first aid training from the world’s most reputable non-profit medical organization is just what you need. But how would you go about getting an American Red Cross First Aid Training.

The American Red Cross has become a household name already when it comes to providing first aid kits, lifeguarding, water safety training, AED or automated external defibrillator training, and CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation training. Learn about the different courses offered and the advantages of getting an American Red Cross First Aid training.

The American Red Cross First Aid training courses are usually taken by people who work in aquatic facilities, beaches, and pools. The training is also aimed at workplaces, laypeople and non-profit emergency response agencies. Anyone who is physically fit can attend and join the American Red Cross First Aid training courses.

In fact, over the last few years, there were around twelve million Americans who were taught with the proper skills in first aid, survival and emergency response. The students who graduated came from all walks of life, from youth volunteers to professional emergency rescuers. Because the American Red Cross is seen as the authority in providing first aid kits in the United States of America, the organization led the Guidelines for First Aid in the year 2005. The purpose of the 2005 Guidelines is to update and peer-review materials used in first aid training.

The American Red Cross First Aid training courses are made to provide you with the confidence in responding to an emergency situation. You are not just trained how to make complete first aid kits but are also taught extra survival skills like injury prevention, oxygen administration, and training on blood-borne pathogens.

The courses are actually categorized into three, so whether you are working with kids or with grown-ups, there is a training course specially made for you. The categories are: community, workspace and professional rescuers.

Under the community category, there are courses like first aid for schools and community, pet first aid and FACT or first aid for children today. For workspace, there is standard first aid and adult CPR. For professional rescuers, some of the courses are preventing disease transmission and administering emergency oxygen. As mentioned earlier, the American Red Cross First Aid is designed for anyone, because any where humans are, life rescuers, like you, are always needed.
