AED Training Course (Automated External Defibrillators)
SCQF Level 5
AED Training Course
AED Training Course Description
This AED Training Course looks at how heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.
This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital AED training in resuscitation and choking procedures.
A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.
The course Instructor is responsible for determining whether delegates pass or fail based on practical and oral assessment throughout the course, i.e. by observation and oral questioning, as well as the completion of a multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course. The Instructor will only award a pass if he/she believes that delegates have displayed the requisite understanding and competencies at the end of each session throughout the course and successfully completed the question paper.
