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.
Learning how to use an AED properly can mean all the difference to someone in need. That's one of the many reasons we make taking AED classes in Tennessee simple. With in-person, online, and blended Simulation Learning courses that combine online class work with an in-person skills session, you can learn how to use an AED when, and how, it suits you best. Check out the classes available, and earn your Tennessee AED certification.
If having an OSHA-compliant certification isn't required for your job or a volunteer position, then gaining your AED certification online in Tennessee 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.
