Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Course

Top up crucial skills and learn more about heart conditions with our AED Training course

First Aiders practising CPR with a defibrillator during and AED training course

Be Confident in using your AED

Use of defibrillators is now taught in all first aid courses, and that should be fine for those who've recently qualified.

But what about those who trained over a year ago, or who haven't been trained at all?

If your staff need a top-up of their skills, or they want to learn more about the three key problems that affect the heart, this course will help.

And if you have a defib on your premises but have staff who don't know how to use it, this course could give them the crucial confidence to use it when needed, rather than leaving it on the wall.

Who is this AED Course suitable for?

This course is suitable for staff working in a workplace with an AED, and who:

  • Aren't confident in using a defib
  • Would like to top up their skills between requalification courses
  • Want to learn more about the major conditions affecting the heart

Who is it NOT suitable for?

This course is not suitable as a replacement for a full 1-day or 3-day first aid qualification, and will not extend the certification period of your existing first aiders.

What's covered in your AED course?

The course runs for 3 hours, and covers the following content:

  • Content
