AED Certification in Waltham
Automated external defibrillators can help save lives when every moment counts. This is why we offer a variety of AED classes in Waltham. With online and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you can learn how to use an AED and administer care while waiting for emergency crews to arrive. All classes take just a few short hours to complete, but can make all the difference during a sudden cardiac emergency.
In order to give you the information you need to provide care to someone in need, our Waltham 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.
In order to help you maintain your credentials, and learn the latest information and techniques, we offer a number of Waltham AED training classes designed specifically for those whose certifications are about to expire, or are within 30 days of expiring. These courses are abbreviated and result in full certification that's valid for two more years.
The Red Cross not only offers Waltham AED classes for individuals, but we also deliver industry-leading AED training for those who work in healthcare. Whether you're a first-responder, CNA, nurse or doctor, our training opportunities allow you to learn the latest information and proven techniques.
At the American Red Cross, AED classes in Waltham can give you the knowledge and confidence to help someone in a time of crisis. Delivered in a traditional classroom setting, with lecture and hands-on skills training, our AED courses allow you to become familiar with the technology, ask questions, and learn in a supportive environment.
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 Waltham, 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.
By combining online coursework with in-person skills sessions, our Simulation Learning option allows you to learn at your own pace, then show your skills to a local Red Cross instructor. Once you've successfully completed both portions of the class, you'll receive full certification, which is valid for two years.
For more than 100 years, the American Red Cross has trained individuals, organizations, first responders, and medical professionals on the best practices for delivering excellent care.
