However, students who have tried other certification organizations prefer us for our versatility, accessibility, and ease of certification and renewal. At ProTrainings, we provide legitimate, quality training that adheres to the ILCOR/AHA guidelines and is approved by numerous third-party accrediting organizations and 99% of employers.

Who Needs an Adult CPR/AED Certification Program?

At ProTrainings, we believe that everyone should have life-saving CPR and AED skills. Naturally, though, you’re probably looking for a more specific answer. 

Adult CPR & AED online certification is essential for anyone whose employer requires CPR and AED skills to be on the job. Employers typically require you to be adult CPR and AED certified when you work only with adults and if you are in a labor-intensive field or if you encounter a high volume of adults each day. In these sorts of scenarios, the chances of a life-threatening event happening are greater. 

The Adult CPR/AED Certification program is a good fit for professionals with the following roles: 
  • Coach
  • Fitness Instructor
  • Massage Therapist
  • Nurse
  • Teacher
The Adult CPR/AED Certification program from ProTrainings teaches lay-rescuer skills for CPR, but not first aid. If your employer is requiring you to get CPR and AED certified, make sure you don’t also need to learn first aid skills or skills that apply to children or infants.

Adult CPR/AED Certification Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to be AED certified?

In the vast majority of cases, you won’t become “AED certified” without also learning CPR. For this reason, most people earn their CPR/AED certification together. 

Becoming CPR and AED certified means that you have gone through the process of learning CPR and AED skills and you have passed an exam to verify your knowledge. 

In a practical sense, if someone suffers a cardiac event, you will first perform CPR to sustain life until an AED device arrives. The AED is then used to buy more time until advanced professional help arrives.

An AED – or automated external defibrillator – is a device that is used to deliver an electrical shock to the heart in the case of cardiac arrest. While this sort of electrical charge is exactly what the heart needs when it has stopped beating, it can be dangerous to someone who hasn’t experienced a cardiac event, which is why it’s important to learn when and how to use this powerful piece of equipment. 

In addition to learning how to use an AED in your CPR and AED certification program, you’ll be relieved to know that all AED devices are equipped with an audio or visual program that tells you exactly what to do in case you need to use the device in an emergency.

Can an AED be used on a child?

Technically, yes, an AED can be used on a child. 

However, there are special considerations to be aware of when using an AED device on an infant or child, so you should only do so if you've taken the CPR/AED program that applies to all age groups: adults, children, and infants. 

Be sure to check with your employer regarding which training and certification is required for your job. Then, also consider your personal life and whether you would want to obtain the proper skills and knowledge needed to use CPR or an AED on a child or infant.

Why are CPR and AED certification courses combined?

CPR and AED are really two steps of a three-step process of saving someone’s life, so they go hand-in-hand. In the event that someone in your vicinity suffers cardiac arrest, you have three important steps to follow: 
  1. Call for professional emergency help 
  2. Perform CPR until an AED arrives 
  3. Use an AED to buy time until professional help arrives 
CPR is a process you can do immediately to help circulate a small amount of blood flow and sustain life. If your workplace has an AED device, it may not be within reach. So while you perform CPR, someone else can fetch the AED. 
Once the AED arrives, the device can be used to try to stimulate the heart to pump a larger amount of blood throughout the body. This process can be enough to help the victim survive until medical professionals arrive on the scene. 

What is an adult CPR course?

An adult CPR course teaches you how to perform CPR – cardiopulmonary resuscitation – on an adult. 

Our adult CPR & AED online certification programs prepare you for the most common – and most life-threatening – situations you may encounter in your work and in your day-to-day life. Adult CPR training educates you on how to handle emergency situations including heart attack, stroke, cardiac arrest, and choking. 

In order to make the course shorter and more efficient, this program is limited to teaching CPR for adults so you can focus only on the skills relevant to your job.

If your job only requires you to be around adults, this program may be the right fit for you. You will also learn how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) if one is available.
