AED Certification in Massachusetts
During a cardiac event every moment counts. In fact, each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces someone's chances of survival by 10%, and with response times of first responders averaging 8 to 12 minutes after 911 is called, it's easy to see why AED classes are vital for members of the community. By participating in American Red Cross AED training in Massachusetts, you can gain the skills to deliver care for sudden cardiac arrest until medical professionals arrive.
To receive full AED certification from the American Red Cross, you must successfully complete an in-person or Simulation Learning course taught by certified Red Cross instructors. AED training in Massachusetts is available in dozens of locations and at a wide range of times giving you the ability to choose a class that suits your schedule. After successfully completing your Red Cross AED training in Massachusetts, your certification credentials will be valid for two years. During this time you'll have access to online refresher materials, and as your certification's expiration date nears, you'll have the option to take an abbreviated AED renewal class. This way, you can stay up to date on the latest information and techniques, and extend your certification by two more years.
At The American Red Cross, we know how important it is to create a safe environment for your students and your faculty. That's why we've developed a training program just for schools. With our specially designed program, your school's educators and administrators can learn to teach Massachusetts AED certification classes, then deliver training to students and faculty. This way, you can create an on-campus community that will be ready to help when it's needed most. If you have a Massachusetts AED certification that's within 30 days of its expiration date, you can register for an abbreviated in-person or blended Simulation Learning class. Both types of classes allow you to learn the updated science and best practices for when and how to use AED devices, and allow you to demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor. This means that upon successful completion of your training you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years. The American Red Cross not only delivers health and safety training, like our AED classes, in Massachusetts, but as part of a global humanitarian network we respond to emergencies and provide training to organizations and individuals in every state and in more than 180 countries worldwide. As part of our mission, we work to ensure that all courses and materials are developed in accordance with the best in emergency science. In addition, all of the information provided to students is reviewed by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council and are updated as new, proven data becomes available.
