Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time – regardless of age or overall health – so understanding how and when to use an AED is critical. During our New Hampshire AED classes, you'll learn how to recognize the signs of sudden cardiac arrest and how to provide care to adults, children and infants. When you take our in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses, which combine online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you'll have the opportunity to work with an expert instructor on your AED skills, and gain the confidence needed to use them. If you opt for an online course, you'll receive the same "lecture" material, but you'll use interactive activities, rather than hands-on work, to test your knowledge.
Note: Only in-person and Simulation Learning courses result in full, OSHA-compliant certification.
If having an OSHA-compliant certification isn't required for your job or a volunteer position, then gaining your AED certification online in New Hampshire is an option. Our online courses deliver the same lecture material and information as our other classes, but instead of using an in-person skills session to test your knowledge, you'll complete a series of interactive activities that will challenge your judgement and help you understand how and when to use an AED. Find details on all of our online AED classes, and sign up for your training in minutes.
After receiving your New Hampshire AED certification, it's important to maintain your skills. After all, like anything, if you don't use them regularly, they're easy to forget. That's why we've created the Red Cross Refresher Center. By using our quick, interactive activities you can test your knowledge online anytime, and maintain your skills so you'll be ready to help when and where it's needed most.
Note: All of our refresher materials are free to use.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are used to deliver a shock to someone in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) – in hopes of returning the heart to a normal rhythm. The AED's electrodes (sometimes called sensors) are placed via sticky pads onto the SCA victim's chest; the connected computer evaluates the heart's rhythm, then a voice prompt will tell you when to give the shock – which is delivered through the electrodes. By using an AED, rather than waiting the typical 8-12 minutes for first responders to arrive, you can help save the life of the SCA victim. After all, for each minute that defibrillation is delayed during a sudden cardiac arrest, the victim's chance of survival is reduced by 10 percent. Check out our newest list of New Hampshire AED certification classes, and confidence and skills needed to help save a life.
