AED Training Courses

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation & Automated External Defibrillation

COURSE OVERVIEW 

Our half day Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation & Automated External Defibrillation (AED) course is based on the necessary theory, backed up with lots of practical sessions; it is made as informative, yet as enjoyable, as possible.

The scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming: the single most important determinant of survival being the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute lost. Basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm but is not a definitive treatment.

The course is delivered by extremely experienced medical trainers (that include special forces medics, state registered paramedics and emergency services medics) to provide you with a unique learning experience.

Persons using an AED should receive regular training; it is recommended by the Resuscitation Council that this should be at least annually and preferably more often.

TRAINING SYLLABUS

  • Assessing a situation 
  • Basic life support 
  • How to use an AED
