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 (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This 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 resuscitation and choking procedures.


A minimum of 3 contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.


A range of subjects is covered including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty • AED functions
  • Resuscitation
  • Heart attacks
  • Infection control
  • Defibrillation procedures
  • Choking
  • AED safety

Asssessment and Marking
The course Instructor is responsible for determining whether delegates pass or fail based on practical and oral assessment throughout the course, i.e. by observation and oral questioning, as well as the completion of a multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course. The Instructor will only award a pass if he/she believes 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 is company certificated rather than it being a recognised qualification. We recommend skills are revisted every 12 months

A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.
