CPR & AED Training

The most important determinant of survival in cardiac arrest is the time from collapse to delivery of the first shock from an Automated External Defibrillator (please see CPR on You Tube via our Links page). Today the widespread  and growing deployment of AED's is considered a realistic strategy for reducing death rates due to heart disease.

No previous experience is necessary, this qualification is suitable for anyone wishing to develop their basic life support skills.
