CPR & AED
Level 2 Award in Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation
A comprehensive qualification outlining a range of knowledge and practical skills in providing Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) safely.
This 1-day course involves a more in-depth study of Basic Life Support and Automated External Defibrillation, providing learners with a detailed background knowledge of the anatomy of the heart and various types of cardiac arrest including Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) and asystole. The extended learning time allows each student to spend more time gaining hands-on experience with the CPR manikins and AED training devices than they would in a typical Emergency First Aid at Work course.
Additionally, this qualification includes training in providing first aid to a casualty who is choking – a common cause of cardiac arrest.

CPR and AED is a practical, hands-on course. Therefore it delivers the skills and confidence to use first aid skills in a real life situation. Consequently, learners must be physically capable of carrying out the practical elements of the course such as CPR and recovery position.
Learners must be at least 16 years old on the first day of the training. There are no other formal entry requirements but to benefit from the learning we advise that Learners have a minimum of Level 1 in literacy or numeracy or equivalent.
