Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Chances of survival fall by 10% for each minute that passes without the use of an AED. Our 1/2 day course will give you the confidence to act quickly and effectively when using an AED. Most importantly, we teach operators how to perform quality CPR, which is crucial in between defibrillation.
Who is it for?
Every second counts when cardiac arrest strikes therefore we strongly recommend CPR / AED training to familiarise yourself with the device, as well as learning quality CPR, which is vital alongside defibrillation.
Defibrillators are specifically designed to be used by anyone and everyone, so no previous first aid experience is required.
