A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. A person’s chance of survival falls by about 10% for each minute that passes without defibrillation. The risk of death can be reduced if you have a defibrillator in your workplace and know how to use it. If you already have a defibrillator, it is important that your employees know where it is. Every second matters and this Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) qualification will give you the confidence to act quickly and effectively. Most importantly, the course will also teach defibrillator operators how to perform effective CPR.
