AED Certification in Kansas
The Red Cross delivers AED training in Kansas in the way that suits you best. Whether you need daytime, evening or weekend classes, prefer in-person courses or learn best in an online environment, we've got you covered. We even offer blended Simulation Learning courses that seamlessly combine online coursework with an in-person skills session, which can help ensure that you understand the procedures described in class and gain the confidence needed to use them during a crisis.
Please note: Not all courses are available in every format, so check your local schedule for details.
In cases of sudden cardiac arrest, an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm. Unfortunately, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes, and for each minute that defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced by approximately 10 percent. This means that the person suffering from sudden cardiac arrest needs your help – now. And if you don't know how or when to use an AED, waiting for emergency responders could prove catastrophic. In order to help you provide care when it's needed most, we offer hundreds of AED classes in Kansas every year. Sign up and learn how you can help save a life.
At the Red Cross, we offer AED classes in Kansas that are designed for a variety of learning styles, including in-person, online and blended classes. For those who learn best under the guidance of a knowledgeable instructor, there's no substitution for our in-person courses. They not only give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics with your instructor and classmates, but they give you the chance to practice your skills hands on – and correct any errors quickly. This way, you can feel confident in your ability to help the moment you leave class.
If having an OSHA-compliant certification isn't required for your job or a volunteer position, then gaining your AED certification online in Kansas is an option. Our online courses deliver the same lecture material and information as our other classes, but instead of using an in-person skills session to test your knowledge, you'll complete a series of interactive activities that will challenge your judgement and help you understand how and when to use an AED. Find details on all of our online AED classes, and sign up for your training in minutes.
After receiving your Kansas AED certification, it's important to maintain your skills. After all, like anything, if you don't use them regularly, they're easy to forget. That's why we've created the Red Cross Refresher Center. By using our quick, interactive activities you can test your knowledge online anytime, and maintain your skills so you'll be ready to help when and where it's needed most.
Note: All of our refresher materials are free to use.
