Defibrillator / AED training - 3 hours

Defibrillator /AED Training - 3 Hours

These In-house courses are designed for companies who wish to take the initiative to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on their premises, and realise the benefits for the welfare of staff, as well as customers.

We provide practical defibrillator training, allowing students to have a better understanding and more 'hands on' experience with an AED.

Over 270,000 people suffer a heart attack every year in the U.K. Unfortunately 30% will not make it to hospital alive. The majority might have been saved had their heart been defibrillated in the first five minutes of their cardiac arrest. An AED unit with a trained operator at the site of a sudden cardiac arrest can raise the chance of survival from 0% to 80%.

This course is suitable for anyone interested in furthering their emergency first aid skills, or who works at a site where an AED is being purchased.

The qualification gained is valid for 12 months, as recommended by the European Resuscitation Council.

Our 3 hour defibrillator training course covers:

  • Dealing with collapse
  • CPR and AED training

It is suitable for previously trained and new staff members.

Our courses meet the HSE standards for 'Due Diligence' for first aid providers.
