We're currently running two different types of digital sessions for adults over 19 years old. 

First aid

Are you interested in learning essential, life-saving first aid skills to help in an emergency? If so, our digital classroom might be for you! These are interactive workshops, run by an experienced British Red Cross educator, where you will tackle four first aid skills and have the opportunity to ask questions. The aim is to build confidence so you can help someone in a first aid emergency, using everyday objects that you have around you. 

For groups of five or more please contact redcrosseducation@redcross.org.uk to discuss dates and times and for a booking form.

Your most frequently asked questions answered. If your question is not answered, please contact us on redcrosseducation@redcross.org.uk or 0344 412 2734.

I don’t know anything about first aid – is this for me?
You don’t need to have any previous experience, just a willingness to take part.

How much does it cost?
FREE! There is no cost to you or your organisation. If you wish to undertake a certified course such as first aid at work, please contact Red Cross Training who will advise you on what type of course that you need. 

Will this session give me a qualification?
We can provide a certificate of learning which you can fill in yourself, but this does not meet any workplace requirements. For accredited first aid courses, please visit https://www.redcrossfirstaidtraining.co.uk/.

Who is delivering these classes?
All sessions are delivered by trained British Red Cross educators. They have a great deal of experience in humanitarian and first aid education.

What equipment do I need?
You can join in on a computer, tablet or smartphone. You may benefit from the larger screen on a computer if you have one available. Red Cross in your classroom has different requirements. Please contact redcrosseducation@redcross.org.uk if you are unsure.

What platform do you use to deliver?
We currently use zoom to deliver our sessions. We can provide the Red Cross in your classroom workshop over Teams if that is preferred. We are exploring other platforms. Please mention at time of booking if you use another video conferencing software. 

How long do sessions last?
It depends on the type of session you are joining. Adult sessions typically last between 60-90 minutes and Youth are around 60 minutes. If you have special requirements, please get in touch, and we can discuss them with you.

What kind of things will I learn?
What you learn will depend on the session you attend. Our educators have specific learning outcomes for each class.

What can I do to prepare?
No preparation is required, just make sure your surrounding environment is quiet so you can hear and contribute. You may wish to download our free first aid app from your app store.

Where can I find out more information?
We have a range of first aid resources on our website, which freely are available to anyone that wishes to learn key life saving skills to use in an emergency. 

With the British Red Cross apps - you’re only two taps away from learning how to help someone in a first aid emergency. These are free to download for your app store, letting you learn simple first aid skills at a time to suit you.
