AED Certification in Burlington
If you've ever wanted to learn how to help when it's needed most, a great place to start is with AED training in Burlington from the American Red Cross. Classes take just a few short hours to complete, but the information you'll learn and the skills you'll have once your class is complete, can truly help save a life.
Because sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time, knowing how to use an AED is critical. That's why we offer a wide range of Burlington AED training opportunities – including group training sessions for parenting groups, scout troops, sports teams/coaches, theater groups, restaurant employees, civic organizations, and more. Our patient, knowledgeable instructors can provide your group with personalized training to help them gain the skills and confidence needed to help during times of crisis.
Sudden cardiac arrest isn't just a problem for the elderly or the infirm. It can happen to anyone – including kids and infants – which is why most of our AED classes in Burlington include how to use an automated external defibrillator on children and infants, as well as adults. Classes are available online, in person, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. This way, you can learn the way that suits you (and your schedule) best. If your job requires full OSHA-compliant certification, then an in-person or Simulation Learning course will be necessary to achieve your goal. However, if OSHA-compliant certification isn't required, then an online-only course will suffice. Check our newest class schedule to find the training you need.
For those who may not need OSHA-compliant certifications, the Red Cross offers AED online training in Burlington. These courses, which are delivered entirely online, give class participants access to the same science-based information as our other AED courses, but in lieu of hands-on skills sessions, they test your knowledge through interactive activities. Once you've successfully completed the class, you'll not only have the skills and knowledge necessary for using an AED, but a two-year certification to prove it.

After completing your AED training in Burlington, maintaining your skills is critical. After all, like anything, if you don't use them regularly, they're easy to forget. That's why we encourage all of our AED students to use the activities available in the Red Cross Refresher Center. With our short interactive activities, you can test your knowledge any time, and keep your skills sharp – so you'll be ready to help when it's needed most.
Once successfully completed, your credentials will be renewed for two years, and you'll have access to our online refresher materials – which can help you maintain your skills throughout the certification period. For details on the AED renewal classes available in your area, check out our newest course schedule.
The training opportunities available at the Red Cross go far beyond our Burlington AED certification courses. In fact, there's something for everyone – at every age. With First Aid and CPR courses for teens and adults, and other training opportunities for medical professionals, we can help you reach your goals at any age.
