AED Certification in Colorado Springs
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 Colorado Springs.
Red Cross AED classes in Colorado Springs are designed and taught by experts who can help you learn to provide care during times of crisis. Our courses are not only OSHA compliant, but they're also fast, easy, informative and affordable. And when you choose the in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years. This can help satisfy your employer's safety requirements and make you an even more valuable member of your team.
In order to give you the information you need to provide care to someone in need, our Colorado Springs 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.

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 Colorado Springs 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.
