Amis: Needs assessment is one of the most controversial concepts in the field of social services , education and training and curriculum planning . This study aimed to assess and prioritization the needs of first aid trainer’s of West Azarbaijan Red Crescent Society in the viewpoint of experts, educational managers and trainers.

Methods: This survey- descriptive research was performed in experts, educational managers and trainers of West Azarbaijan Red Crescent Society in 2010. 189 individuals were selected by simple randomly sampling method. Data were gathered by a questionnaire with 30 questions about educational needs of first aid trainers. Friedman and Kruskal Wallis tests were used for data analyses by using SPSS 14 statistical software.

Results: There was a significant difference between the needs prioritization of trainers and educational managers (p=0.001). The most important need was “holding non-attendance courses by sending selftraining books and supplies ” in trainers’ viewpoint and “ Familiarity with the methods and techniques of teaching and class managing ” in managers’ viewpoint. All over, the difference between two groups was high in needs prioritization.

Conclusion: Although the trainers and educational managers of Red Crescent Society have serious differences in needs prioritization, but both groups recognize “holding retraing courses and providing the latest cases of teaching first aid during the year” the most and “Familiarity with bone and joint injuries” the least needs in educational field.
