Basic Life Support and AED Training

Basic Life Support & Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training course




Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places.

A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence.      Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in basic life support including resuscitation. The  topics covered in this course are in accordance with current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK).
