CPR and AED Training

The majority of companies now have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) onsite to treat Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and to increase survival rate. Each minute of delayed use of an (AED) decreases the chances of survival by 10%.

Our CPR and AED Training course will give candidates the knowledge needed to be fully conversant in the use of an AED. The training will enable candidates to complete the chain of survival when dealing with an unconscious casualty who is not breathing and requires resuscitation. This is a great addition to any first aid course.
