Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator

This half day course is designed to provide comprehensive CPR & AED training to those who may need to respond to emergency situations.

When a casualty’s heart stops beating, studies have shown a dramatic increase in survival rates when high quality CPR is combined with a shock from a defibrillator.

This in-depth course focuses on how to use a defibrillator and how to combine this with effective CPR to ensure minimal interruptions. Covering a wide range of AED skills, successful learners will leave the course with the skills and confidence needed to save a life in an emergency.
