AED Certification in Walkersville
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 Walkersville.
AED classes in Walkersville take just a few short hours to complete, but can mean all the difference to those in need. Regardless of which type of class you enroll in, in-person, blended Simulation Learning, or online-only, you'll receive thorough instruction on when, why, and how to use an automated external defibrillator. Our in-person and blended courses also include hands-on skills sessions to help you put your knowledge to the test, while our online-only courses give you activities to complete that will challenge your skills.
Note: Only our in-person and blended Simulation Learning courses may meet workplace requirements for AED certification. Please check with your employer prior to enrolling.
In order to give you the information you need to provide care to someone in need, our Walkersville 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.
The skills necessary for saving a life can easily be forgotten if you don't use them regularly. That's why, after completing our AED classes in Walkersville, you'll receive free online access to a range of refresher materials. With interactive quizzes, games and videos that you can use at any time during your two-year certification period, our refresher materials make it easy to keep your skills sharp and ready for anything.
