As well as offering impartial advice on all of our AEDs, we also provide nationally recognized AED training to give you confidence in using your defibrillator, including first aid skills and CPR.
Purchasing an AED for your environment, whether it be in the community or for your business, is a massive step into making the people around you heart safe. We strongly believe that training in the use of a defibrillator is massively beneficial to enhance the skills of the user for an emergency situation.
A defibrillator can be used with no training as each unit provides either visual or voice prompts to guide you through the rescue process.
However training and gaining some familiarity with the unit can only benefit you and boost your own personal confidence if you ever need to use the unit in an emergency situation. Once you have made the right move and purchased your life-saving AED, we don’t want you to worry about needing to use it.
Early CPR and defibrillation can drastically improve a person’s survival chances from a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) from 6% - 74% if administered within 3-5 minutes. If a defibrillator is used inside 60 seconds a person’s chances increase even further to a massive 90%.
Provided immediately after a person has suffered an SCA, effective bystander CPR can double a victim's chance of survival.
CPR / AED guidelines for defibshop training with our partners EMS Safety follow recommendations from the 2015 ILCOR International Consensus on CPR and ECC Science with Treatment Recommendations and ILCOR First Aid Science Task Force.
Once you have completed one of our CPR and AED training courses, you’re ready to go for 2 years.
