Course Details

Is this the course for me?

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. A casualty's rate of survival will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This course also covers basic life support training including resuscitation. View the full course information here.
