AED Certification in North Dakota
When you enroll in AED training in North Dakota from the American Red Cross, you'll receive world-class instruction that's based on the latest proven science, standards and regulations. Under the guidance of the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, a panel of nationally recognized experts from a variety of scientific, medical, and academic disciplines, we receive authoritative guidance on a wide range of subjects, including (but not limited to) AED, first aid, CPR, emergency preparedness, aquatics, disaster health, and nursing. This guidance ensures that Red Cross practices and recommendations align with the latest evidence-based knowledge in science and medicine, and adhere to relevant industry standards and guidelines.

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 North Dakota AED certification classes, and confidence and skills needed to 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 North Dakota AED certification.
After your AED training in North Dakota 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.
