One of the most recognised killers in today’s society is Cardiac Arrest. In the UK alone, the national death figure for cardiac arrest is in the region of 150,000 people annually. With the availability of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) this figure will be significantly lower. AED’s are at last becoming more and more visible into today’s society and hopefully before long they will be common place in every working and public environment.
The course is designed to be run over 1 day, with a minimum of 6-guided learning hours. The course involves both theory and practical work culminating with a final assessment.
- Assessment of the situation.
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty.
- Heart attacks.
- Odds of survival.
- Maintenance of AED, Safety Precautions with AED, operating an AED.
- Scenario Training.

If your organisation has a specific area of training that is not included, or you require a more in depth session, then we can provide additional training in that area.
All learners will undergo a formal assessment at the start of the course to ensure that they are appropriately trained in resuscitation (CPR). At the end of the course all learners will then be assessed on the protocols and practical use of the AED. This qualification is valid for one year and it is recommended that users run through scenario and refresher training periodically. They must then attend a formal update at the end of each qualification period.
A maximum of 8 learners can be accommodated on this course and each participant must be a minimum age of 16 years to achieve this qualification
