AED Certification in Pittsburgh
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 Pittsburgh. With online-only and in-person classes, plus our blended Simulation Learning, we make it easy to get the training you need.
Red Cross AED classes in Pittsburgh are designed and taught by experts who can help you learn to provide care during times of crisis. Our courses are not only OSHA compliant, but they're also fast, easy, informative and affordable. And when you choose the in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years. This can help satisfy your employer's safety requirements and make you an even more valuable member of your team.
At the Red Cross, we offer AED training in Pittsburgh for students and administrators. Through our special schools program, your faculty and students can learn how to properly use an AED, and be ready to help when every moment counts. School courses result in full two-year certification, and all participants will have access to our online refresher materials, which can help keep their skills sharp long after their AED training has ended.
The Red Cross not only offers Pittsburgh AED classes for individuals, but we also deliver industry-leading AED training for those who work in healthcare. Whether you're a first-responder, CNA, nurse or doctor, our training opportunities allow you to learn the latest information and proven techniques.
Because every minute counts when care is needed, we offer our Pittsburgh AED certification classes at a range of times, and in a variety of locations, all year long. Delivered by trained experts, our courses include lecture materials, as well as hands-on training to help you become comfortable with how and when to use external automated defibrillators. After successful completion of an in-person course or blended Simulation Learning class, you'll receive full certification that's valid for two years, as well as access to online refresher materials to help keep your memory, and your skills, sharp.
If you don't often use the skills you've learned in our AED classes in Pittsburgh, it's easy to forget how and when to use an automated external defibrillator. In order to keep your memory fresh, we've created a printable document that outlines the steps necessary for providing life-saving care. This way, you can keep the instructions in a binder, on your refrigerator, at your desk or in your bag, and refer to them from time to time so that you're ready to help when it's needed most.
For more than 100 years, the American Red Cross has trained individuals, organizations, first responders, and medical professionals on the best practices for delivering excellent care. And our Pittsburgh AED certification courses are part of that legacy. Developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, our AED courses provide you with the latest science and proven techniques so that you can help when it's needed most.
