Sample Video: Introduction to AED

This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in AED use. Learning AED skills is becoming more important with the increase in the numbers of units in the community and workplace. They are easy to use with little training and make a real difference in the chance of survival to someone in cardiac arrest. If you have already completed any other first aid course, you will understand the importance of prompt use of an AED, making this an ideal course to develop your skills. To renew, complete the same course again.

All our first aid courses fully meet the UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.

The regulated version of this course includes Basic Life Support (CPR) and is a longer course.

What People are Saying

“I would highly recommend this training to anyone. Very good videos showing clear demonstrations of the skills needed to become an efficient first aider. The split of vertual training and real training is a good balance.”

- Cy from Essex

“This training session shows that a small amount of training/awareness can save lives. The training dispels the fear of AED usage and will ensure a greater number of people will realise they can make a difference.”

- Michael, Director from Essex
