Because every minute counts when care is needed, we offer our Detroit AED certification classes at a range of times, and in a variety of locations, all year long. Delivered by trained experts, our courses include lecture materials, as well as hands-on training to help you become comfortable with how and when to use external automated defibrillators. After successful completion of an in-person course or blended Simulation Learning class, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years, as well as access to online refresher materials to help keep your memory, and your skills, sharp.
After completing one of our AED classes in Detroit, you'll be able to capably, confidently, provide care to someone during a sudden cardiac arrest. In order to administer a "shock" with an AED, you'll open the person's shirt, wipe his or her chest, apply the AED pads and follow instructions from the device. Afterward, you'll begin CPR, if necessary. Because of the last step involved, our AED classes include a segment that will allow you to also earn your CPR certification.
At the Red Cross AED certifications are valid for two years. In order to help you maintain your credentials, and learn the latest information and techniques, we offer a number of Detroit AED training classes designed specifically for those whose certifications are about to expire, or are within 30 days of expiring. These courses are abbreviated and result in full certification that's valid for two more years.
