Basic Life Support with Defibrillator First Aid Training
Basic Life Support Course
This very practical 4-hour course covers Basic Life Support including how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), which are now found throughout public and work places. Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year – many of which could be saved if a defibrillator was available, in addition to people who can use one confidently.
You can either choose the regulated version which gives you a certificate valid for three years, or you can choose a non-regulated version which can be more tailored to the audience and receive a certificate of attendance.
