Level 3 Emergency Paediatric First Aid

Course Information

Level 2 CPR and AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation): 1 day course

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) 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 have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

Course Duration

A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.

This very 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 resuscitation and choking procedures.

  • Responsibilities and reporting

  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
