Get CPR/AED certified – and learn how to help when it’s needed most. You may not realize it, but the response time for first responders after 911 is called averages 8-12 minutes, and during sudden cardiac arrest – each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces someone’s chances of survival by approximately 10%. This is why, at the American Red Cross, we support the position that improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year. In fact, we believe that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.
The Red Cross CPR/AED certification program is designed and taught by experts. Our courses not only satisfy OSHA-mandated job requirements (or workplace and other regulatory requirements), but are fast, easy, informative and affordable. In addition, they’re delivered in a variety of ways – including in-person and via our best-in-class blended learning, which combines online course work with in-person skills sessions. This way, you can choose the option that suits you best.
