Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places around the country. The casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This is a very practical course and will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with self-confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes resuscitation and choking training procedures.

Course Syllabus:

  • Responsibilities
  • Safety measures
  • Introduction to Defibrillation
  • Primary Survey
  • Secondary Assessment
  • Resuscitation  & Choking
  • AED and its functions
  • Defibrillation with an AED
  • Paediatric Defibrillation

If your organisation has a precise area of training that is not included in the above, or you require a more in-depth session, then we can provide you additional training in that particular subject area.

Course Duration

A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom (consisting of practical and theoretical activities) must be attended by all learners undertaking the training.


Subject to on-going assessment, all learners will be issued with a Level 2 Award in CPR and AED certificate. This qualification is valid for three years and can be renewed by attending a refresher training course.


A maximum of 12 learners can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.


The ISTQ Instructor is responsible for determining whether learners pass or fail based on practical and oral assessment throughout the course, i.e. by observation and oral questioning, as well as the completion of a multiple-choice question paper at the end of the training. The Instructor will only award a pass if he/she has confidence in that learners have displayed the necessary understanding and competencies at the end of each session throughout the training and successfully completed the question paper.
