4-Hour Basic Life Support and Safe use of an AED Course

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places.

A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This very practical course will enable you to use the AED competently and with confidence.

Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED, but it also includes vital training in basic life support including resuscitation.

    A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.


    A range of subjects are covered including:

    • Defibrillation procedures
    • Safety measures
