A defibrillator can prove an invaluable piece of equipment when you need to resuscitate a heart attack victim. People are becoming more aware defib machines' availability. More organisations — public and private — are installing them.
However, only 1 in 20 people know how to use them, according to research by the British Heart Foundation. The AED course we run looks to address that imbalance.
And we need to, too. In the UK, one person dies every six minutes from a heart attack. One in three heart attack victims will die before they reach hospital.
So, for every minute that passes without defibrillation, a victim's chance of survival falls dramatically.
Defibrillation within 3–5 minutes of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 50-70%. ~ Resuscitation Council (UK)
Latest ERC basic life support guidelines recommend that all workplace employees are trained to use an AED. We'd also recommend that everyone consider taking an AED course.
You don't need first aid training or a first aid certificate to undertake the course. You never know when a heart attack will strike nor whether you'll be the first (or only) person on hand to help.
Dates and venue: for courses delivered on your premises, we work with you to set out the dates and schedule.

Excellent standard of training, excellent instructor and excellent course content. It was good to get 'hands on' with the equipment to get familiar with it.
