Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an AED

It is a scary fact that heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. 

This practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in basic life support including resuscitation.

On passing the oral and practical assessments on this four hour regulated course, you will receive a Level 2 qualification and certificate in basic life support and safe use of an AED which lasts three years from the date of your course.

What we cover:

Responsibilities and reporting

Assessment of the situation

Dealing with an unresponsive casualty

Infection control


AED functions

Defibrillation procedures

Safety measures



We are able to run this course for a company / team at a venue of your choice in the Southeast of England (maximum 12 persons). 

You will need to provide a room with a presentation screen which is big enough for the group to perform practical assessments on each other. 

Alternatively, we can source a venue for you if required.


  • Private group rates on request. All costs quoted include the training, equipment usage, First Aid manuals, certificates and qualifications. Private group rates on request.
