AED Defibrillator Training

Course Overview

A heart attack strikes every two minutes in the UK, causing death in more than half of cases. 275,000 people will have a heart attack each year and 150,000 will die as a result.
Prompt defibrillation, by a trained operator, can significantly change the outcome of a heart attack, raising the chance of survival from as little as 5% to as much as 80%. However, treatment must be administered within promptly if it is to be effective, and survival rates drop by 7-10% for every minute that a cardiac arrest goes untreated.

Defibrillator training is a course that teaches individuals how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. AEDs are devices that can help save the life of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest by delivering an electric shock to the heart.

The Automated External Defibrillator Course is for people who work in environments where a defibrillator is provided, such as:

  • Shops and shopping centres
  • Sports facilities
  • Churches
  • Offices
  • Clubs
  • Colleges &universities
  • Schools
  • Local community facilities

What does the the course cover?

Defibrillator training involves learning how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and how to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) emergency. The training typically covers the following topics:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of SCA
  • Calling for emergency medical services (EMS)
  • Starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • Using an AED
  • Applying the AED pads to the person’s chest
  • Delivering a shock if necessary
  • Continuing CPR until EMS arrives

Do you have to be trained to use a defibrillator?

While it is possible to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) without training, most AED manufacturers recommend users undergo training to ensure that they are taught when to use the AED, how to respond if a shock is not required, and how to attach the pads to the person.

How long does the training take?

You can complete the course in just two hours, which can be arranged to suit your schedule.

Is there an asssesment?

Your training will be continually assessed throughout the course, with a brief multi-choice examination at the end.

Do you receive certification?

On successful completion of the course and passing of the test, you will be awarded with a recognised certificate. This lasts for One Year.

How often should Defibrillator training be carried out?

AED training should be refreshed regularly, typically every year, to ensure that individuals are up-to-date with the latest guidelines and techniques for using AEDs. As our certification lasts one year, we recommend training is carried out as soon as this expires.
