AED/CPR

Audience

The AED/CPR training course is intended for employees who wish to provide First Aid and medical care in case of sudden cardiac arrest. The course is particularly suitable for people who do not have a First Aid background.

What does an AED/CPR care provider do?

How do you recognise a cardiac arrest? What actions should you perform first? What if there is no AED nearby? How long should you continue CPR? During this training course, you will learn what actions you should take while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. An AED is the most effective tool for increasing the chances of survival of the patient, however an AED is not always at hand. Starting CPR immediately – in wait of the AED – doubles the survival rate of a victim.

Practical exercises

The programme offers a good mix of theory and practice, giving you sufficient knowledge and skills by the end of the training day.

Refresher courses

An annual 4-hour refresher course is mandatory in order to keep your knowledge and skills up to date and your certificate valid.
