CPR & AED Course

Overview: Our CPR & AED course covers a range of topics to do with cardiac and respiratory emergencies. It will also teach you how to use an AED, when it should be used and who should use it. 

This course teaches skills with the American Heart Association’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching (PWW) technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback and guide the students’ learning of skills. By the end of the course, the students will have completed numerous cycles of CPR while using a defibrillator, this is all designed to make the student more comfortable and confident if ever asked to carry out the skills in real-life emergency situations.

What you’ll learn: You will come out of our course with the knowledge and confidence to deliver potentially life-saving assistance. We will cover these topics:

  • Adult Chest Compressions

Duration: This course takes between 2-4 hours to complete depending on the number of students attending the course. 

Assessment: Students will be continually assessed by the instructor throughout the course and will be presented with a complete CPR & AED scenario to which they must respond. Students must successfully complete all necessary steps to pass the course.
