About this Defibrillator Training Course

Our Defibrillator Awareness course equips participants with essentialAutomated External Defibrillator (AED) knowledge and how they can save lives in an emergency.

This awareness-level course will help prepare anyone to respond confidently in a cardiac emergency. Trainees learn the fundamentals of AEDs, including their purpose, functionality and how to use them effectively in emergencies.

Why Is Defibrillator Training Important?

Every year, around 100,000 people die due to sudden cardiac arrest in the UK. This makes up around 18% of deaths, making cardiac arrest one of the country’s biggest killers.

When cardiac arrests happen, AEDs – combined with CPR – give the victim the best chance of survival, increasing survival rates from 6% to 75%.

And with AED devices now mandatory in all state-funded schools in the UK, training on defibrillator use should be considered essential for any education professional.

AED training provides individuals with medically proven knowledge that can be the difference between life and death when faced with a cardiac arrest.

The course shows you how to spot the signs of a cardiac arrest and use an AED correctly to help the victim. Knowing how to set up and operate an AED prepares you to act decisively in the critical minutes following a cardiac emergency.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

As an employer, your role extends beyond the everyday operations of the workplace. When it comes to AED training, understanding your responsibilities is crucial for creating a safe environment for your employees. This responsibility means employers must:

  • Train employees on the use of AEDs
