LEVEL 2 BASIC LIFE SUPPORT AND SAFE USE OF AN AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATION (AED)
WHY DO I NEED THIS?
A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time. The risk of death can be reduced if you have a defibrillator close by and, more importantly, you know how to use it. To mark the launch of our training service we are offering this course at a significantly discounted rate to the first 12 learners.
Automated External Defibrilators (AEDs) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places, including schools and community centres. They are proven to save lives and are an invaluable addition to health and safety provision.
Our course teaches essential basic life support skills, with vital instructions that an AED operator needs, giving students the confidence to know what to do in an emergency.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW FIRST?
No previous first aid knowledge is needed to attend an AED course.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
This very practical course will enable learners to use the AED competently and confidently. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED, but it also includes essential training in basic life support, including resuscitation.
RANGE OF SUBJECTS COVERED INCLUDE:
Scenarios will be set to enable a learner to demonstrate their knowledge and practical skills. The practical assessment is ongoing throughout the course but the Trainer/Assessor will make learners aware of when they are being assessed. The learners will be assessed on:
Responsibilities and reporting
Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
Assessment of the situation
COURSE IS SUITED TO:
Learners aged 16 and over who are interested in furthering their emergency first aid skills.
Due to the practical nature of the first aid assessment there are physical demands and learners must be able to demonstrate their skills as in a real-life situation. An example of this would be to demonstrate CPR on a mannequin at floor level. It is recommended that learners should hold a minimum of level 1 in literacy or equivalent to undertake this qualification.
It may be possible to allocate a reasonable adjustment to a learner who has a disability, medical condition or learning need. Please contact us direct to discuss your needs.
LENGTH OF COURSE:
FAA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support & Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrilator. The qualification lasts for 3 years. To renew their qualification after 3 years, delegates will need to retake the full course. However, it is recommended that during the 3 year period delegates attend annual refresher training.
All learners will receive with a certificate of an attendance, which is included in the course fee. Should you require a certificate of qualification, please note there will be an additional charge of £10 per learner.
