AED Training

As the goal’s of Greg’s Fund expanded, we decided to try to learn as much as we could about AEDs and how they are used. Both of us are certified American Heart Association instructors. Rachel is also certified by the American Red Cross, a fact she delights in holding over John’s head.

With others, we have helped train more than 1,000 people by offering the Heartsaver AED course. Some early donations to Greg’s Fund were earmarked for training manikins and AED manufacturers have been gracious in donating AED trainers. We are also thankful to a cadre of dedicated friends and acquaintances who routinely give up their time to train others in AED and CPR skills. Because the training materials are owned by Greg’s Fund, we have been able to provide training for $5 per person or less.
