Should an employee undergo cardiac arrest, would you know what to do? AED (Automated External Defibrillation) training provides you with the necessary knowledge and skills to support an individual should this occur, giving them the best possible chance of survival. Whilst it’s not a certainty that they will survive, survival rate is 75% after receiving defibrillation (within 5 minutes of not breathing). With this in mind, it’s an essential life skill – and, as an employer, a legal requirement.
About the course…
The course lasts for three hours – during which time, you will be provided with both theoretical and practical knowledge to undertake defibrillation.
What you will learn…
You will have acquired the following skills by the end of the course:
- Assess a cardiac arrest incident/patient
- Perform a DRABC check and send for help
- Understand the priorities of first aid
- Conduct CPR
- Recognise disorders of circulation
- Operate a defibrillator
- Record necessary information and perform a thorough handover for emergency services
How you will be assessed…
Whilst you will not be required to sit a formal exam after training, your instructor will assess your progress and knowledge throughout the course to ensure that you reach the necessary standards to pass. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a cerificate as confirmation of your new skill.
Where the course takes place…
Most businesses choose to have the course run ‘on-site’ at their place of work as this proves to be most convenient and cost-effective. However, if you require the training to be run elsewhere, just let us know; we can support you in identifying a more suitable location.
