AED Certification in Moline
When you sign up for AED training in Moline, you'll learn when, why, and how to use an automated external defibrillator. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on skills sessions (or online activities, if you choose an online-only course), you'll gain the insights, information and skills to save a life when every moment counts.
Our Moline AED classes can not only help you learn when to use an AED, but how to use one properly. After all, AEDs should only be used on a person who is experiencing sudden cardiac arrest – and recognizing the signs and symptoms associated with sudden cardiac arrest isn't always as cut and dry as you'd think. That's why our instructors take the time to address the all of the information you'll need in order to deliver the right type of care during times of crisis.
Sudden cardiac arrest isn't just a problem for the elderly or the infirm. It can happen to anyone – including kids and infants – which is why most of our AED classes in Moline include how to use an automated external defibrillator on children and infants, as well as adults. Classes are available online, in person, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. This way, you can learn the way that suits you (and your schedule) best. If your job requires full OSHA-compliant certification, then an in-person or Simulation Learning course will be necessary to achieve your goal. However, if OSHA-compliant certification isn't required, then an online-only course will suffice. Check our newest class schedule to find the training you need.
If you want hands-on experience but need the flexibility of online learning, then our blended Simulation Learning AED classes in Moline offer the perfect solution. By delivering lecture materials via an online class, and the opportunity to perfect your technique during an in-person skills session, you can gain the knowledge and confidence necessary to use an AED when it's needed most.

In Moline, AED renewal is easy with The American Red Cross. With abbreviated classes created specifically for current certificate holders, our AED renewal program allows you to maintain your certification. During the course, our knowledgeable instructors will cover AED usage for adults, children, and infants, and provide you with the latest science-based knowledge. At the end of class there will be a skills session that will allow you to demonstrate what you've learned and correct any bad habits you may have formed. Once successfully completed, your credentials will be renewed for two years, and you'll have access to our online refresher materials – which can help you maintain your skills throughout the certification period.

The training opportunities available at the Red Cross go far beyond our Moline AED certification courses. In fact, there's something for everyone – at every age. With swimming classes those ages 6 months and older, babysitting classes for tweens and teens, first aid and CPR courses for teens and adults, and BLS and other training opportunities for medical professionals, we can help you reach your goals at any age.
