Basic Life Support and Automated External Defibulation - 1 Day

Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you know how to use it.

This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence.
