Why would I want to do this course?
This new 6 hour course aims to develop confidence and skills in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs). The combined course is suitable for anyone but may be particularly relevant for those with access to an AED in the work place or who have a responsibility for leisure or community groups.
An additional short module (of around 2-3 hours) in the use of AEDs can be added to other first aid courses offering a dual qualification.
What would I do on this course?
Around 70% of the 6 hour course will be spent in interactive, practical activity. It will be delivered by qualified teachers and trainers who also have practical first aid experience.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
• Assess the situation so you can act safely and effectively in an emergency
• Deal with the unresponsive and breathing person
• Maintain a safe airway position
• Deal with the unresponsive and non- breathing person
• Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
• Deal with choking
• Understand the importance of the ‘Chain of Survival'
• Have a basic awareness of heart rhythms and the relationship to the use of AEDs
• Apply the use of AEDs through a number of practical scenarios
• Appreciate how to report and record incidents
Assessment is continuous through each section of the programme.
What's included in the price?
Included in the price is the use of recommended first aid materials, an easy to follow individual course booklet and one CPR training manikin per 2 participants. You will use AED training machines during the practical scenarios. You will receive an accredited, recognised certificate, issued by ITC an awarding body.
