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.
