AEDs save lives!  

Defibrillators are designed to be easy to use. Although there may seem to be a large number of different AEDs on the market, in fact they all work in a very similar way, the main difference being whether they are semi-automatic or automatic. i.e. will the device deliver a shock to the casualty automatically or will it tell you (yes, AEDs talk to you!) to press a button in order to deliver a shock. For more information about AEDs, how they work and how to use them read our first aid tip here: What is an Automated External Defibrillator

You don't have to have been trained in order to use an AED in an emergency situation but most people prefer to attend a course in order to boost their confidence to act promptly and effectively should they need to.

Universal defibrillator training devices are commonplace and are designed to take you through the safe use of an AED and train you to troubleshoot common problems. AED training can be delivered by all regulated first aid training providers.  It doesn't have to be given by the same organisation that provided your defibrillator.

In-house AED Training

One or more of our trainers can come to workplace to train your staff to use an AED. This could be as part of an Emergency First Aid at Work qualification (or any of our first aid courses) or we have a specific, 4hr, course which covers the first aid essentials of Baisc Life Support and the Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

We deliver training 7 days a week and can adjust the start times to fit with your working day. 

To arrange on-site AED Training for your workplace please call us on 0207 193 2608 or email info@reactfirst.co.uk For details on prices and numbers on courses visit our prices page.
