 and utilizes the most up do date first aid guidelines and equipment available. It is taught in a relaxed, supportive and energetic manner that leaves students feeling confident and prepared to make a difference in an emergency medical situation.

AED certification through NOVA in conjunction with Steel Standings, LLC. The courses are taught with a relaxed, supportive and energetic feel that leaves students feeling confident and prepared to make a difference in an emergency situation.

AED is of course an acronym for Automated External Defibrillator, which is a device that corrects a deadly heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation. This deadly rhythm is responsible for the #1 cause of death in the United States, sudden cardiac death (SCD). AED training classes are taught to make the public, and your co-workers aware that with the use of an AED, the chances of survival from SCD can be increased from a mere 5% to up to about 50%!

In our AED Training classes, we empower our students' comfort with the 5 links in The American Heart Association's "Chain of Survival". They are as follows:

  1. Early access to 911

  2. Early access to quality CPR

  3. Early use of an AED

  4. Early access to EMS

  5. Quick access to care at hospital.

The course is recommended to be taught along with basic CPR, as your AED will instruct you to perform CPR after delivering a shock to the patient. This isn't necessary however. We are happy to come to you location and teach a short, informational, non-certification class as well. An AED Training class as a "lunch and learn" is a popular, interesting and potentially life saving topic.
