AED Certification in Peoria
An automated external defibrillator (AED) can help you save the life of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. And when you sign up for one of our Peoria AED certification courses, we can help you learn when, why and how to use an AED in just a few short hours. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help when it's needed most.
At the Red Cross, we believe that everyone should know how, and when, to use an AED – and that learning to do so can be a family affair. To that end, we encourage all family members to enroll in our courses – either separately or together, depending on your individual needs. With online, in-person, and blended Simulation Learning classes, finding the right fit for your learning style and schedule is simple.
Note: All of our AED classes in Peoria are open to learners who are ready for the experience. That usually means 16 or older, but younger students are welcome.
If you want hands-on experience but need the flexibility of online learning, then our blended Simulation Learning AED classes in Peoria 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.

For businesses, AED classes in Peoria can simply help make your business safer. According to OSHA, cardiac arrest is at the root of 300,000-400,000 deaths per year, and since most cardiac arrest deaths occur outside the hospital, and current out-of-hospital survival rates are 1 to 5 percent, having access to an AED and someone who knows how to use it can help save lives. At the Red Cross, our in-person and blended Simulation Learning courses allow your teams to achieve full, OSHA-compliant AED certification. Staffers can either sign up individually, or you can book a private group class by signing up online.
For those who may not need OSHA-compliant certifications, the Red Cross offers AED online training in Peoria. These courses, which are delivered entirely online, give class participants access to the same science-based information as our other AED courses, but in lieu of hands-on skills sessions, they test your knowledge through interactive activities. Once you've successfully completed the class, you'll not only have the skills and knowledge necessary for using an AED, but a two-year certification to prove it.

In Peoria, 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 Peoria 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.
