What you will learn on this course

The concept of first aid seems daunting for those not trained, so the Resuscitation Council UK has come up with simple guidelines to help laypeople save lives.

You will learn:

  1. A review of basic life support
  2. How to recognise cardiac arrest, heart attack and other conditions
  3. How to use an AED and help someone who is in cardiac arrest

Here at Vital Workplace Training, we go above and beyond when it comes to delivering our training sessions. Every course is carefully planned and designed by our expert team to make sure you are getting the very most out of your time.

Personalised training sessions

What’s important to us is delivering engaging and informative training sessions. We’ve realised that the best way to do this is to customise our training sessions to fit the requirements of our trainees.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all training sessions. Every course we deliver is personalised to the specific workplace in question. When it comes to Automated External Defibrillator training, learning about how to use this essential machinery in your own workplace will be much more beneficial to you and your employees.
