    Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time – regardless of age or overall health – so understanding how and when to use an AED is critical. During our South Dakota AED classes, you'll learn how to recognize the signs of sudden cardiac arrest and how to provide care to adults, children and infants. When you take our in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses, which combine online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you'll have the opportunity to work with an expert instructor on your AED skills, and gain the confidence needed to use them. If you opt for an online course, you'll receive the same "lecture" material, but you'll use interactive activities, rather than hands-on work, to test your knowledge.

    Note: Only in-person and Simulation Learning courses result in full, OSHA-compliant certification.

    If having an OSHA-compliant certification isn't required for your job or a volunteer position, then gaining your AED certification online in South Dakota is an option. Our online courses deliver the same lecture material and information as our other classes, but instead of using an in-person skills session to test your knowledge, you'll complete a series of interactive activities that will challenge your judgement and help you understand how and when to use an AED. Find details on all of our online AED classes, and sign up for your training in minutes.
