This is a new short course incorporating Basic Life Support and the safe use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) with training normally taking place over 4 hours.
This includes the necessary theory followed by lots of practical “hands-on” practice to build confidence. The aim of this course is to enable all individuals to deal with an unconscious casualty who is breathing, and how to deal with an unconscious casualty who is not breathing as well as the safe use of a defibrillator.
This course is accredited by Ofqual and on successful completion of this course students will receive a certificate entitled FAA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support & Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (QCF) which will be valid for 3 years.
