With twisted ankles and disintegrating knees on the rise, a background in first aid is a good Samaritan's greatest tool. Today's side deal teaches you life-saving techniques in a three-hour first-aid training class with Safety Training Seminars for $25. A one-day weekend class will teach you how to be a calm and reassuring presence, and how to administer emergency medical attention for deep cuts, burns, fractures and seizures. Whether you're a first-time student or an avid aid-giver who needs a renewal course, you will become fully certified and up-to-date in first aid after one session. You'll walk out the door with your three-year certification card that entitles you to immediately remove splinters from a cat's paw.
More valuable than learning origami, a first-aid certification will teach you solutions for a wide variety of troubling scenarios that can occur without warning. Learn how to handle bleeding, shock, poisoning, diabetic and allergic reactions, insect bites, and other events that could threaten a person's life. Stop being a confused bystander and become an active agent when emergencies arise. Classes run on Saturdays and Sundays at the Vermont Street location from 1 to 4 p.m., and free street parking is available. After three hours of instruction from experts in the field, your training will be complete and the way you watch hospital dramas starring Edward James Olmos will never be the same.

Safety Training Seminars
An official American Heart Association CPR training center, Safety Training Seminars has provided first-aid education in life-saving courses since 1989. Although the center's American Heart Association instructors possess extensive life-saving skills, they still know how to present their material for the general public. Despite the urgent nature of the techniques they teach, they manage to create a low-stress and casual environment. Catering to those with busy schedules, classes are scheduled year-round across the Bay Area, with many times and locations available.
