AED Certification in Nebraska
Elevate your career, train for a new one, and learn how to help others during times of need. With a wide range of Nebraska AED certification classes available, the American Red Cross offers convenient access to important trainings and OSHA-compliant courses that can help you gain the skills and confidence to provide care, or even save a life.
In cases of sudden cardiac arrest, an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm. Unfortunately, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes, and for each minute that defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced by approximately 10 percent. This means that the person suffering from sudden cardiac arrest needs your help – now. And if you don't know how or when to use an AED, waiting for emergency responders could prove catastrophic. In order to help you provide care when it's needed most, we offer hundreds of AED classes in Nebraska every year. Sign up and learn how you can help save a life.
For those who learn best by doing, we offer in-person and blended Simulation Learning courses. Both types of classes include important "lecture" materials delivered either in a traditional classroom setting or in an online environment. Once that portion of class is complete, all students (whether you're taking an in-person class or a Simulation Learning course) will work side-by-side next to an instructor and actually learn how to use an AED. You'll touch the machines, learn their intricacies, have your pad placement for adults, children and infants checked by your instructor, and complete the course with true hands-on training. Once both the lecture and the skills session has been successfully completed, you'll receive full, OSHA-compliant Nebraska AED certification.
After your AED training in Nebraska is complete, your skills are useless if you don't know where the nearest AED is. So with your certification in hand take a moment the next time you're at work and track down your nearest AED (and show your co-workers where it's at, too) – because without a defibrillator, providing life-saving assistance to someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest is impossible.
