BLS/AED TRAINING FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS CERTIFICATION
This course is specifically led for all healthcare professionals including Doctors, Nurses, GP’s and including anyone in the healthcare industry.
This one day course covers every aspect of resuscitation of an adult, child or baby, as well as how to resuscitate anyone who is an emergency situation.
This course also shows you how to recover a person who is choking or drowning, as well as the practical use of an AED.
AED’s are becoming increasingly common both in the work-place and in public areas.
This course is designed to meet the HSE regulations for those acting as the nominated First Aider at work or any member of the general public who wants to learn how to use an AED.
The course is classroom based with practical training using the most up to date equipment and presentation materials. Attendees are encouraged to use role play as a learning tool and questions are positively encouraged.
Training will also cover Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and in-depth practical use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, there is a no legal requirement for any business (except for healthcare settings) to have in place at least one AED. It is classed as a moral law to have one of these devices in the workplace or well-populated public area. Hopefully this will be legally enforced at a later date.
The use of an AED is the only way to restart a heart after cardiac arrest, and the earliest use of an AED is proven to promote the best and sometimes only chance of survival.
All Resuscitation Council and Health & Safety Executive recommendations and regulations will be continually updated and included in all sessions, ensuring your employees receive the most accurate and up to date teaching.
We can also come to you and train you or your employees in your workplace. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
