CPR - AED Training Courses

This course offers CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training for the Professional Rescuer. The course is taught according to the new American Red Cross and the National Emergency Cardiac Committee guidelines. This is available only to NVDS member dentists and their office staff.

Some pre-course reading is necessary and helpful. You will receive an American Red Cross CPR/AED Professional Rescuer Manual by email prior to your class. Please familiarize yourself with the material discussed in this manual.

Your American Red Cross Certification Card will be sent directly to the email account provided on the registration form.

Please see the NVDS Calendar of Events for CPR - AED Training Courses and to register.

CPR Red Cross Instructor Training Classes

The Northern Virginia Dental Society is looking for NVDS members who are interested in becoming instructors for CPR classes offered through our society. The cost for the instructor training is being covered by the dental society. However, we are asking that each instructor commits to teaching at least two CPR classes per year. All classes are held at the NVDS Central Office (4330 Evergreen Lane, Suite N, Annandale, VA). If you are interested in learning more about becoming an instructor, please call Tracey Dougherty (703-642-5298) or email to: tdougherty@nvds.org.
