AED Certification in Oregon
During a cardiac event every moment counts. In fact, each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces someone's chances of survival by 10%, and with response times of first responders averaging 8 to 12 minutes after 911 is called, it's easy to see why AED classes are vital for members of the community. By participating in American Red Cross AED training in Oregon, you can gain the skills to deliver care for sudden cardiac arrest until medical professionals arrive.
To receive full AED certification from the American Red Cross, you must successfully complete an in-person or Simulation Learning course taught by certified Red Cross instructors. AED training in Oregon is available in dozens of locations and at a wide range of times giving you the ability to choose a class that suits your schedule.
After successfully completing your Red Cross AED training in Oregon, 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 an Oregon 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. This means that upon successful completion of your training you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years.
At The Red Cross, we know how important it is to create a safe environment for your students and your faculty. That's why we've developed a training program just for schools. With our specially designed program, your school's educators and administrators can learn to teach Oregon AED certification classes, then deliver training to students and faculty. This way, you can create an on-campus community that will be ready to help when it's needed most.
We believe in empowering you to provide care when it's needed most. In order to make sure that you receive the training you need to confidently help during times of crisis, all Red Cross classes, including our AED classes in Oregon, are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council. Comprised of more than 50 nationally-recognized medical, scientific, and academic experts, the Council works to ensure that Red Cross programs and materials are not only based on the best science available, but that they're also effective and easy to understand.
