Automated external defibrillation (AED) awareness

A short course that gives employees the confidence to use an AED to restart a heart if they have to.

Training during COVID-19

During the current pandemic, we will be delivering this course remotely via a virtual classroom. We will present the same high quality educational content you expect from our Posturite trainers but in a different format. A remote learning approach eliminates the infection risk a face-to-face course presents and can offer greater flexibility during the current climate. The course timings will be reduced to 1.5 hours, with the maximum number of delegates at six.

If you require any further information at this time please do not hesitate to contact the training team on 0345 345 0010 or [email protected].

Delivery method



Automated external defibrillators are designed to be simple and easy to use but in an emergency situation, prior knowledge and experience could be invaluable.

Our Automated External Defibrillation (AED) awareness course will familiarise attendees with their workplace AED so they can safely and confidently administer defibrillation in the event of a life-threatening situation.

The course will also cover important information about heart attacks, heart rhythms, cardiac arrest and the chain of survival. Please note: we don’t cover life support skills on this course.

What to expect

Attendees will learn about situations in which an AED might be needed. They’ll get to handle and use an AED training unit, which will be a complete replica of the real thing - without the electric current. Everyone will receive a certificate of attendance once they successfully complete the course.
