Course Description

Automated External Defibrillation and CPR In-House

Automated External Defibrillation and CPR Training - 3 Hour In-House Course

For each minute that passes without defibrillation after the heart stops, the casualty’s chance of survival falls by about 10%*.

Defibrillators are very simple to operate, and no previous first aid training is required. This three-hour in-house course gives people the confidence to act quickly and effectively in an emergency.

Crucially, St John Ambulance will teach your defibrillator operators how to perform effective CPR in the event of a cardiac arrest as well as giving candidates the confidence and skills to use any type of defibrillator.
