The presence of an AED significantly enhances a casualty’s chances of survival, particularly when utilized by properly qualified individuals.
This highly practical course empowers learners to confidently and competently operate an AED. In addition to AED training, it also provides essential instruction on resuscitation techniques and procedures for handling choking incidents. By completing this comprehensive course, learners will be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to respond effectively in critical situations, potentially saving lives.
