AED Certification in Yuma
When someone suffers a sudden cardiac emergency, his or her chances of survival are reduced by approximately 10% for each minute that defibrillation is delayed. And with the average response time of first responders once 911 is called registering at between 8 and 12 minutes, you can see that knowing how to use an AED is critical. That's why the American Red Cross offers a range of options for AED training in Yuma.
AED training in Yuma is available in person, online, and via our innovative blended Simulation Learning experience. By combining online coursework with in-person skills sessions, our Simulation Learning option allows you to learn at your own pace, then show your skills to a local Red Cross instructor. Once you've successfully completed both portions of the class, you'll receive full certification, which is valid for two years.
At the American Red Cross, AED classes in Yuma can give you the knowledge and confidence to help someone in a time of crisis. Delivered in a traditional classroom setting, with lecture and hands-on skills training, our AED courses allow you to become familiar with the technology, ask questions, and learn in a supportive environment.
To complement your Yuma AED training experience, we've developed printable step-by-step guides and free, online refresher materials that can help keep your memory and your skills fresh long after your class has ended. This way, you can be prepared to provide the best possible care when it's needed most.
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 Yuma 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.
In order to give you the information you need to provide care to someone in need, our Yuma AED classes also include instruction on, and certification in, First Aid and CPR. And although these classes offer a wide range of information, they take just a few short hours to complete. In addition, our in-person and Simulation Learning courses on AED, First Aid and CPR are OSHA compliant and result in full certification, which is valid for two years.
