Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR and AED) teaches you how to respond effectively to life-threatening emergencies. This course focuses on basic life support skills such as scene safety, initial casualty assessment and CPR, taught through instructor led theory sessions, video presentations and and plenty of skill practice.
Students will leave with a thorough grounding and be able to react quickly in an emergency situation.
Evidence shows that where AED’s have been used the survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest victims are far higher than when defibrillation is delayed until the ambulance arrives. This CPR Certification will ensure participants are confident in their use of an AED and can respond quickly to an emergency.
AED’s are the only effective treatment to restore a persons heartbeat suffering from ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia where the victim has only minutes to live. AED’s are more affordable than ever!
