On completion of training in the use of an AED the participant should be able to demonstrate the sequence of actions and skills required to use an AED during the simulated resuscitation of an adult victim who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
This will be assessed both during and at the end of the training, using a simulated incident, AED and a resuscitation training manikin.

“The automated external defibrillator (AED) has been described as the single most important
development in the treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). These devices are now widely available and increasingly used by people, often with little or no training, to re-start the heart of a victim of SCA. Under ideal circumstances, when used very soon after collapse (within two or three minutes), many can survive.

50% of all Sudden Cardiac Arrests are witnessed. The immediate initiation of bystander CPR can double or quadruple survival from out -of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Our AED course teaches essential skills that an AED operator needs and gives delegate the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
Every minute counts
Medical attention must be administered as soon as possible after the victim collapses; the chances for survival decrease 10% with every minute you wait.
The AED Course is generally suitable for people aged 16+ who want to learn how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) machine.
No previous first aid knowledge is needed to attend an AED course.

It happens in a split second. A person collapses — the victim of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) — and the clock starts ticking. You call for help and the medical personnel are on their way. But precious seconds are racing by. The victim’s best chance for survival is immediate CPR and a rescuer with an automated external defibrillator (AED).
We also offer an AED with life support course for people who don’t have a current first aid certificate.
