• AED Certification in Michigan

    AED classes in Michigan take just a few short hours to complete, but can make all the difference to those in need. After all, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes. For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival reduces by approximately 10%. Fortunately, with online, in-person, or blended AED training from the American Red Cross, you can learn the skills that can help save a life.

    At the Red Cross, AED classes in Michigan will prepare you to provide life-saving care during sudden cardiac arrest. For those taking in-person or Simulation Learning classes, you'll receive world-class training from experienced, certified instructors who can help you understand why, when and how to use an AED, then you'll receive hands-on training to help you gain the skills and confidence to use the device. For those enrolled in an online-only class, you'll receive the same exceptional instruction, but you'll also perform a number of online activities to test your knowledge and become comfortable with the material. Sign up for an AED class that suits your schedule, and your learning style.

    After successfully completing your Red Cross AED training in Michigan, 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.

    If you have a Michigan 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.
