Automated External Defibrillator
A 3-4 hour training programme that meets the requirements of the UK Resuscitation Council for First Responder Defibrillation.
The Vital First Aid Training Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course provides hands on experience and training for the safe and effective use of any portable defibrillator and will ensure you have the peace of mind that should the need arise your staff can safely use the AED.
Additionally, HSE legislation now recommends that if an employer provides and AED then staff should receive training in its use.
Ideally candidates will already hold a First Aid at Work certificate but full training in CPR can be given if necessary. An AED unit is an integral part of the course and should be in-situ or available before training takes place.
This AED Course includes:
An overview of Ventricular Fibrillation and the use of defibrillators.
Emphasis on early intervention, early CPR and the importance of the ‘Chain of Survival’.
Hands-on practice for students using training AEDs.
Scenario practice sessions tailored to portray similar situations to which the student may have to respond.
Maintenance and troubleshooting of AEDs.
Course Duration: Half day (3-4hours)
Certificate valid for: 1 year
