Courses designed for businesses and groups needing to be legislation compliant 

This practical-based half-day course is essential to ensure that those who suffer cardiac arrest in the community are given the best possible chance of survival. The course is suited to those who may be required to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, choking, stroke or unconsciousness in the workplace, at a sports facility, in the home or in their community.

Students will learn the basic techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), how to use an AED and the action to take in the event of choking for adults and children.  This course ensures that the essential chain of survival methodology is put into practice, and that patients receive basic life support before the arrival of the emergency services, without which advanced life support will not succeed.

Course Content

  • CPR for adults, children and infants
  • Safe operation of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Choking in adults, children and infants
  • Administration of Aspirin
  • Assessment for Stroke (FAST Assessment)
  • Recovery position
  • Heart Attacks and Cardiac arrest

We believe that, participants on the course, benefit when the training incorporates both practical and interactive learning, this helps build confidence and the ability to put theory into practice and to cope with real-life situations that may arise in the workplace, home or community. The Cardiac First Responder Course is classroom based with a strong emphasis on practical learning through skills demonstration and scenario-based training.

We can deliver the Adult and Child CPR/AED Heartsaver Courses individually, or together.  Individually, the training will be approximately 2 hours in duration.
