Who Needs a CPR & AED Course?

CPR & AED skills can make the difference in saving someone’s life when seconds count. At ProTrainings, we believe that everyone should have these life-saving skills.  

However, there are some professions that involve greater risk – such as in the case of working in factories, doing manual labor, or having physically taxing duties – and other professions in which you may be around a larger number of people, and therefore have a greater chance of encountering someone who needs life-saving support. 

While we would love for every American to be CPR & AED certified, the professions most in need of these skills include: 
  • Child Care Professionals
  • Coaches
  • Fitness Instructors
  • Massage Therapists
  • Middle & High School Students
  • Nurses
  • Parents
  • Teachers
The ProTrainings online CPR & AED certification course is specifically designed with these roles and responsibilities in mind. You will receive training and skills development to match the everyday situations you’ll encounter in your job and your day-to-day life.

Online CPR & AED Certification Frequently Asked Questions

Can CPR and AED courses be taken virtually?

Yes! There is no national accrediting body for CPR & AED training and certification. That means you can get your certification from any qualified organization, including the American Heart Association, the Red Cross, or an accredited program like ProTrainings. 

Over the years, online CPR & AED certification programs have become increasingly popular. The demand for flexible, study-from-anywhere CPR courses has largely been affected by the busy schedules of professionals who require CPR & AED certification. 

The COVID pandemic accelerated the development and acceptance of online programs, as well.

Now, you can complete your CPR & AED certification online from the convenience of your home or anywhere you have an internet connection.

How do you get certified to use an AED?

You can earn your AED certification through any accredited training program, such as those offered by the Red Cross, the American Heart Association, or ProTrainings. 

Depending on your state, agency, or employer, you may be required to complete an AED certification in order to use an AED device. Whether you are required or not, it's always best to learn the proper skills and steps for using an AED before handling one. 

To get certified to use an AED, you must first choose a training program. At ProTrainings, we offer 100% online CPR & AED certification programs. Many professionals find that our online programs fit nicely into their busy schedules and they can complete their training quickly to meet employer requirements. 

It’s also important to note that most AED training will be accompanied by CPR training. 

Upon completing your CPR & AED training, you will need to pass an exam in order to earn your CPR & AED certification online.

What does AED stand for?

AED is an abbreviation that stands for automated external defibrillator. An AED is a portable device often found in workplaces with a large number of employees or where some degree of physical risk is involved. 

Used in cases of cardiac arrest, an AED is used to restore a normal heartbeat to the heart. It works by delivering an electric shock that stimulates an electrical impulse in the heart’s muscle tissue. 

The AED was invented in 1947 by Dr. Paul Zoll while studying at Harvard Medical School and working as a medical resident at Massachusetts General Hospital. 

According to the NIH as of 2018, approximately 1,700 lives are saved every year by people appropriately using AEDs.

Why should you get CPR and AED certified?

Life has a way of throwing the unexpected at us. Whether you’re at work (where CPR and AED training is required) or you’re at the grocery store, at your child’s soccer game, or on vacation, you never know when an emergency might happen. 
At ProTrainings, we believe in preparing people for the unexpected so they can enjoy life feeling prepared and confident, never fearful or hesitant. We also believe these skills should be accessible and easy to fit into your life, which is why we offer CPR & AED certification online. 
You’ve already spent a lifetime learning valuable skills – whether as a student, a professional, a parent, or any number of scenarios. Why not add saving a life to your skillset?
