About AED Courses
Automated External Defibrillators deliver therapeutic electricity
to restart a heart that has stopped beating properly. These courses
teach the lay rescuer to safely use AEDs in a variety of situations.
Please note that our courses are significantly different than other
providers. Our AED Provider course is
8 hours, for the same money that others charge for a 4 hour course.
In addition, we provide far more practice with the machines. In
the courses of our leading competitors, students practice 1 to 3
scenarios with the Defibrillation Trainer. In our courses, we guarantee
at least 6 scenarios each. Instead of bringing one or two machines,
we have special equipment that allows us to simulate up to 20 rescues
at once. Our costs are in line with our competitor's courses, despite
being significantly longer and more practical.
