Automated external defibrillators can help save lives when every moment counts. This is why we offer a variety of AED classes in Oakland. With online and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you can learn how to use an AED and administer care while waiting for emergency crews to arrive. All classes take just a few short hours to complete, but can make all the difference during a sudden cardiac emergency.
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.
