Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Cardiac Arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers. Many people could have survived with use of a Defibrillator.


Automated External Defibrillators are now becoming more common in the work place. Although at present there is no legislation governing the use of these devices, training is still essential.

Following guidelines from the European Resuscitation Council and the Resuscitation Council UK, we can provide a comprehensive programme. This is very practical course for appropriate first Aiders.


Course Description

Cardiac Arrest is the biggest killer in this country. Over 150,000 die as a result. The majority could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of workplaces. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This very practical course will allow suitably qualified First Aid personnel to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but also revisits some basic First Aid skills, including resuscitation.



A 3-hour course consisting of practical work along with an assessment.



A range of subjects is covered including: -

  • Assessment of the situation
  • Chain of Survival
  • Dealing with an unconscious casualty
  • Resuscitation
  • Heart Attacks
  • AED – Maintenance

There is a formal assessment at the start of the day in order to ensure that all students can resuscitate. In addition to this, there is an assessment at the end of the course including the practical use of the AED. This qualification is valid for 12 months.



A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course and must be aged a minimum of 16 years or above.
