AED Certification in Jacksonville
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 Jacksonville. With online-only and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning, we make it easy to get the training you need.
In order to help you maintain your credentials, and learn the latest information and techniques, we offer a number of Jacksonville 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.
At the Red Cross, we offer AED training in Jacksonville for students and administrators. Through our special schools program, your faculty and students can learn how to properly use an AED, and be ready to help when every moment counts. School courses result in full two-year certification, and all participants will have access to our online refresher materials, which can help keep their skills sharp long after their AED training has ended.
The Red Cross not only offers Jacksonville AED classes for individuals, but we also deliver industry-leading AED training for those who work in healthcare. Whether you're a first-responder, CNA, nurse or doctor, our training opportunities allow you to learn the latest information and proven techniques.
If you don't often use the skills you've learned in our AED classes in Jacksonville, it's easy to forget how and when to use an automated external defibrillator. In order to keep your memory fresh, we've created a printable document that outlines the steps necessary for providing life-saving care. This way, you can keep the instructions in a binder, on your refrigerator, at your desk or in your bag, and refer to them from time to time so that you're ready to help when it's needed most.
In order to give you the information you need to provide care to someone in need, our Jacksonville 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.
At the American Red Cross, we understand how important AED training is. That's why we deliver AED classes in Jacksonville in several ways, including in-person, online, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions. Regardless of how you train, once your course is complete, you'll be able to provide someone with the life-saving care they need, when they need it most.
