I have a high school girl (11th grader) who wants to take a first aid course. I’m teaching in an individualized classroom and am wondering if anyone has any good ideas for this? What have you taught? Credit given, etc.
Thanks in advance!

I have been researching the same question the last week without a lot of success. There are various classes offered online for reasonable fees but I have not closely researched their content or validity. I would prefer the students take a class with an instructor and a hands-on approach. I’m considering offering some credit to students if they take an American Red Cross or American Heart Association class offered locally.

We’ve had several students take first responder classes through the local fire & rescue departments. This was outside of school hours but they were given full credit (the same as any other elective course) towards their diploma upon their certification.

For a high school student, I’d also recommend checking with your local Red Cross to determine where and when they offer first aid classes that your student could join. Typically these will be outside of school hours at some local EMS facility.

I looked into something like this several years ago, and while I don’t remember the details I know I talked to a volunteer firefighter in our community. He helped get the school in touch with the right people from either the fire department or the Red Cross, I think.
