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.

This very practical course will enable 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. Delegates will learn the skills and knowledge to provide Emergency First Aid treatment to their casualties in a prompt, safe and effective manner. The topics covered in this course are in accordance with current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK).
This course is taught over 4 hours and consists of theoretical and practical activities.
A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.
