AED Certification in Los Angeles
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 Los Angeles. With online-only and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning, we make it easy to get the training you need to help in times of crisis.
Understanding how, and when to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) can empower you to save a life. That's why the American Red Cross offers AED classes in Los Angeles and across the country. With the option to learn online, in person or take a blended Simulation Learning class, which combines online coursework with hands-on skills sessions, you can be prepared to deliver care when it's needed most.
