CPR with defibrillator training
AEDs (automated external defibrillators) are proven to save lives and are therefore an invaluable addition to health and safety provision for your employees. Once one is installed in your workplace, we highly recommend you train personnel in its usage.
Our course teaches the essential skills that an AED operator needs and gives students the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
Defibrillators are very simple to operate and no previous training is required to attend this course.
Organisations that wish to train their staff in CPR and AED on their own premises can also add oxygen therapy to their workplace training package.
SESSIONS WILL INCLUDE:
- The role of the first aider
- Managing an emergency
- Communication and casualty care
- Chest pains
- Getting to know the AED (any type)
- Operating the AED
- Treatment of an unresponsive casualty
- Resuscitation (CPR)
Certification is dependent on successful continuous assessment of the student. Assessment will be carried out through observation along with some written exercises. Whilst the written elements are straightforward, candidates require a basic command of English. Students who complete the course and are deemed to have reached the required standard are issued with a certificate which is valid for three years.
If you are interested in furthering your emergency first aid skills, or already take part in an organised first aid scheme, then this course would suit you. If you are a health care worker then this course will serve as a basic module.
No previous first aid knowledge is needed to attend an AED course.
