You might contact your local Red Cross, I've taken a few classes from them and the training is quite good. One first aid class I recommend is called "Wilderness First Aid" it's 16 hours of instruction, mainly designed for hikers and backpackers; but the course covers everything you need for accidents occurring away from immediate assistance and in areas where "normal" basic first aid and life saving techniques are not feasible.
