As well as offering impartial advice on all of our defibrillators, we also offer first-class, nationally accredited AED training to give you confidence in using your life-saving defibrillator, including first aid skills and CPR. Anyone can attend our training courses and do not have to have had any first aid experience prior.
Purchasing a defibrillator for your environment, whether it be at home or at work, is a massive step into making the people around you heart safe. We strongly believe that training in the use of a defibrillator is massively beneficial to enhance the skills of the user for an emergency situation.
How AED training can help
A defibrillator can, of course, be used with no training as each unit provides either visual or audio instructions (or both) to help you through the rescue process.
However training and gaining some familiarity with the unit can only benefit you and boost your own personal confidence if you ever need to use the unit in a pressure situation. Once you have made the right move and purchased your life saving defibrillator, we don’t want you to worry about ever needing to use it.
Early effective CPR and defibrillation can drastically improve a person’s survival chances from a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) from 6% - 74% if administered within 3-5 minutes. If a defibrillator is used inside 60 seconds a person’s chances increase even further to a massive 90%.
Provided immediately after a person has suffered an SCA, effective bystander CPR can double a victim's chance of survival.
All our defibrillator training courses not only adhere, but exceed the core competencies which are laid down by the Resuscitation Council UK. Therefore we know you are getting advanced training during our cost effective courses.
