• AED Certification in Vermont

    Elevate your career, train for a new one, and learn how to help others during times of need. With a wide range of Vermont AED certification classes available, the American Red Cross offers convenient access to important trainings and OSHA-compliant courses that can help you gain the skills and confidence to provide care, or even save a life.

    When it comes to delivering care to someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest, every second counts. In fact, for each minute that defibrillation (via an AED) is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced by about 10 percent, and with average response times of 8 to 12 minutes for first responders once 911 is called, the need for immediate care is critical. Fortunately, AEDs (the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest) are easy to use, and they're now located in most office complexes, shopping centers, transportation hubs, etc. And in Vermont, AED classes are available online, in person, and in a blended format, that can not only give you the confidence and skills needed to us an AED properly, but can give your employer and everyone you know, added peace of mind.

    Note: OSHA-compliant AED certifications can only be achieved via our in-person or blended Simulation Learning courses.

    If having an OSHA-compliant certification isn't required for your job or a volunteer position, then gaining your AED certification online in Vermont 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.

    After receiving your Vermont AED certification, it's important to maintain your skills. After all, like anything, if you don't use them regularly, they're easy to forget. That's why we've created the Red Cross Refresher Center. By using our quick, interactive activities you can test your knowledge online anytime, and maintain your skills so you'll be ready to help when and where it's needed most.

    Note: All of our refresher materials are free to use.
