An AED is a portable device that can detect and treat the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia of ventricular fibrillation. It can then guide the rescuer through defibrillation which stops the chaotic rhythm of the heart, allowing it to re-establish a normal rhythm. AED Training
From the beginning of 2017, all courses in the First Aid at Work suite have included AED training as standard. This comes in recognition of the importance of early defibrillation for a casualty who has suffered a cardiac arrest. We however also continue to run stand-alone Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training courses that require no previous first aid experience. Great to boost the number of defib trained people in your workplace.
Students will learn all the skills necessary to attend to a casualty who has suffered a cardiac arrest. The following subjects are covered:
Communication and Casualty Care
Heart Attack and Angina
Use of an AED
Maintenance of the AED and reporting
Dealing with unresponsive casualties
½ Day (3 Hours)
Prices from £37.50 per person (based on group booking)
There is no written assessment, but on-going practical assessment throughout the course ensures that delegates are competent and confident.
On successful completion of our defibrillator (AED) Training, candidates will be awarded a certificate that is valid for 3 years. It is recommended that first aiders complete an Annual refresher course each year to refresh and update their skills.Book Now
