To receive full AED certification from the American Red Cross, you must successfully complete an in-person or Simulation Learning course taught by certified Red Cross instructors. AED training in Virginia is available in dozens of locations and at a wide range of times giving you the ability to choose a class that suits your schedule.
If you have a Virginia AED certification that's within 30 days of its expiration date, you can register for an abbreviated in-person or blended Simulation Learning class. Both types of classes allow you to learn the updated science and best practices for when and how to use AED devices – and allow you to demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor. This means that upon successful completion of your training you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years.
After your AED training in Virginia you'll have the skills necessary for providing life-saving care. However, if you don't use your skills regularly they can be easy to forget. That's why we offer all of our AED class participants access to free refresher materials, like games, quizzes and videos, that take just minutes to complete, but can make all the difference to those in need.
We know how important it is to create a safe environment for your students and your faculty. That's why we've developed a training program just for schools. With our specially designed program, your school's educators and administrators can learn to teach Virginia AED certification classes, then deliver training to students and faculty. This way, you can create an on-campus community that will be ready to help when it's needed most.
At the Red Cross we believe in empowering you to provide care when it's needed most. In order to make sure that you receive the training you need to confidently help during times of crisis, all Red Cross classes, including our AED classes in Virginia, are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council. Comprised of more than 50 nationally-recognized medical, scientific, and academic experts, the Council works to ensure that Red Cross programs and materials are not only based on the best science available, but that they're also effective and easy to understand.
