AED Certification in Kansas City
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 Kansas City. With online-only and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning, we make it easy to get the training you need.

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.
