AED Certification in Houston
Understanding how, and when to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) can empower you to save a life. That's why the American Red Cross offers AED classes in Houston and across the country. With the option to learn online, in person or take a blended Simulation Learning class, which combines online coursework with hands-on skills sessions, you can be prepared to deliver care when it's needed most.
The Red Cross not only offers Houston 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.
At the American Red Cross, AED classes in Houston can give you the knowledge and confidence to help someone in a time of crisis. Delivered in a traditional classroom setting, with lecture and hands-on skills training, our AED courses allow you to become familiar with the technology, ask questions, and learn in a supportive environment.
By combining online coursework with in-person skills sessions, our Simulation Learning option allows you to learn at your own pace, then show your skills to a local Red Cross instructor. Once you've successfully completed both portions of the class, you'll receive full certification, which is valid for two 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 Houston, 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.
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 Houston 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.
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 Houston 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.
