  1. 3) Training – AED acquirer state laws many times dictate that you have to ensure expected users are trained in American Heart or Red Cross or equal CPR & AED certified courses (American Safety & Health Institute, Medic First, Health & Safety Institute, Emergency Care & Safety Institute, American Health Association, etc). These certifications range depending on which training org you use but every 1-2 years the certification expires and needs to be renewed. Courses can be obtained locally at Red Cross locations or through the American Heart Association network but also there are over 100,000 instructor throughout the US alone and there are local training centers that can provide a competitive price for CPR & AED, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogen or Universal Precautions plus other more advanced or supplemental add-on training classes. Various online solutions are also available.

    • Thanks Mark. You’re right First Aid and CPR AED classes are important for everyone to learn. I’ll apologize, but I took the link to your website out of your comment. Why did I do that? Because it was to a website that had online-only ‘certification’ classes with no hands on component. If you had read this post you would have realized the post was about how online-only courses are a sham. To protect you I removed the link so you would not appear as spamming my blog with comments directing readers to your own website that will take their money, provide an online course and issue a ‘card’ they can print at home that no one will accept. My apologies if you are unhappy with my decision, but I felt it necessary to maintain the integrity of my blog. I agree that CPR AED and First Aid courses provide the knowledge that can be used to help and save the lives of others; and that’s why I teach what I do.
