Half Day Automated External Defibrillation course. (AED)


Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is well established as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest.
The scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming, the single most determinant of survival being the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute. Basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm but is not a definitive treatment. 


We offer a comprehensive Automated External Defibrillation (AED) programme based on the necessary theory, backed up with lots of practical sessions. The course is run over half a day, and is made as informative, yet as enjoyable as possible, thus allowing the students to gain confidence in what is a new and possibly somewhat daunting skill. 


In addition to training we are able to offer advice in areas such as, company protocols, purchasing equipment and on-going help and support with training and development.


Training conforms to current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.


Fees: The cost of this half day course for individuals is £50 + VAT (at our training centre).  The cost of this course for a group of up to 12 students is £350 + VAT when run at our training centre or your venue and includes assessment, certification and a manual for each student. There are no additional costs.
