Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are becoming readily available, as their importance in the chain of survival is more widely understood. As well as having an AED available, it is also important that people likely to use the defibrillator feel confident both in CPR and using the AED in an emergency. The Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) Course is a half day course, designed to give attendees practical experience in CPR and using the defib and result in confident AED users at the end of the course.
