AED Certification in Rhode Island
When you enroll in AED training in Rhode Island 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.

In cases of sudden cardiac arrest, an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm. Unfortunately, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes, and for each minute that defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced by approximately 10 percent. This means that the person suffering from sudden cardiac arrest needs your help – now. And if you don't know how or when to use an AED, waiting for emergency responders could prove catastrophic. In order to help you provide care when it's needed most, we offer hundreds of AED classes in Rhode Island every year. Sign up and learn how you can help save a life.
At the Red Cross, we offer AED classes in Rhode Island that are designed for a variety of learning styles, including in-person, online and blended classes. For those who learn best under the guidance of a knowledgeable instructor, there's no substitution for our in-person courses. They not only give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics with your instructor and classmates, but they give you the chance to practice your skills hands on – and correct any errors quickly. This way, you can feel confident in your ability to help the moment you leave class.
After your AED training in Rhode Island 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.
