Although on whole AEDs are very easy to use, when put in a high-pressure situation, it is comforting to know that you have used the equipment in front of you before. This is where the AED Orientation Training benefits anyone who might be called on to use the defibrillator, giving them the practical experience using the AED and practicing their CPR skills to act confidently in a lifesaving situation. At Good Skills Training we have experience delivering the AED Workshop to community groups, foyers and public buildings, children in schools and youth groups and in private businesses.
