Hi! I'm Alex and I'm your Trainer!

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 (AEDs) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and workplaces.
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.

A minimum of 4 contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.

A range of subjects are covered including:
• Responsibilities and reporting • Assessment of the situation
• Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • Infection control
• Resuscitation • AED functions
• Defibrillation procedures • Safety measures

Assessment and Marking:
The course Instructor is responsible for determining whether delegates pass or fail based on practical and oral assessments throughout the course, i.e. by observation and oral questioning, as well as the completion of a question paper at the end of the course. The Instructor will only award a pass if they believe that delegates have displayed the requisite understanding and competencies at the end of each session throughout the course and successfully completed the question paper.

This qualification is valid for 3 years from the date of achievement. The learner will need to complete the full course again to requalify for a further 3 years. It is recommended that the learner attends annual refresher training.

A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 14 years of age to qualify.
