AED Training

aed training

Cardiac arrest is the single biggest killer in the UK. It is a condition in which the heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly due to a fault in the hearts electrical system.

It can strike without warning and in the UK kills approximately:

  • 2000 people every week
  • 12 young people a week
  • 1 person every 5 minutes

The only treatment for this is by delivering an electric shock to the heart, ideally within the first few minutes as part of the chain of survival. This will greatly increase the chance of survival. Without this, over 95% of sufferers die.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are becoming more common in workplaces and the community. Our training follows the guidelines, and beyond of the European resuscitation council and the Resuscitation council UK to ensure a comprehensive programme, thus ensuring a confident and competent operator.

This course is a level 2 qualification.

AED & CPR course (in house): £300 (max of 6) - £500 (max of 12)
