AED Certification in Philadelphia
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 Philadelphia.
Automated external defibrillators can help save lives when every moment counts. This is why we offer a variety of AED classes in Philadelphia. With online and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you can learn how to use an AED and administer care while waiting for emergency crews to arrive. All classes take just a few short hours to complete, but can make all the difference during a sudden cardiac emergency.
At the Red Cross AED certifications are valid for two years. In order to help you maintain your credentials, and learn the latest information and techniques, we offer a number of Philadelphia AED training classes designed specifically for those whose certifications are about to expire, or are within 30 days of expiring. These courses are abbreviated and result in full certification that's valid for two more years.
The skills necessary for saving a life can easily be forgotten if you don't use them regularly. That's why, after completing our AED classes in Philadelphia, you'll receive free online access to a range of refresher materials. With interactive quizzes, games and videos that you can use at any time during your two-year certification period, our refresher materials make it easy to keep your skills sharp and ready for anything.
