Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator
This Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator is designed to develop a learner’s skills and knowledge in basic life support and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) usage in emergency situations.
Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers, and yet statistics show that most of the British public are unaware of the life-saving difference they can make by performing CPR and defibrillation.
