AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Training
Review your action plan to deal with a heart attack with our AED training course.
All workplaces, communities and individuals.
What this 1-2 hour course covers
Knowing how to operate an AED could save a life. During cardiac arrest every minute defibrillation is delayed, chances of survival drop by 10%. AEDs are easy to use and some include voice prompts to guide the rescuer through every step. However nothing can replace hands-on training to increase confidence in using a defibrillator, and help you use one as quickly as possible. Choose from our 1 or 2 hour training sessions, which can be held at your workplace or another site.
You will learn:
- How to recognise the early symptoms of a heart attack
- How to use a defibrillator and why they're important
- Hands-on CPR with a qualified instructor (2 hour course only).
