The purpose of this Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation is to provide the learner with the skills, knowledge and understanding in the provision of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and of the safe use and management of an Automated External Defibrillator. This qualification offers the trained provider the opportunity to provide effective emergency lifesaving first aid care using an AED. This is achieved through the understanding of the BLS/AED algorithm and the responsibilities and treatment principles of AED use.
This course covers Basic Life Support skills and includes skills for Adult, Child and Infant as well as healthcare variations on infant CPR. The course includes: Safety, precautions, initial assessment, recovery position, CPR, compression only CPR, CPR handover and choking. This is ideal for nurses, care workers or medical professionals needing annual updates to complete professional membership. In most cases this course is ideal as an online only course but if you need a practical session as well we have a network of approved instructors where we can offer the course as blended including a short practical session.
AED training is also included in the course. Learning AED skills is becoming more important with the increase in the numbers of units in the community and workplace. They are easy to use with a little training and make a real difference in the chance of survival to someone in cardiac arrest. If you have already completed any other first aid course you will understand the importance of prompt use of an AED making this an ideal next course to take to develop your skills.
This course can be completed as the online part 1 of a 2-part blended course. After completing this online course, you may attend the classroom-only part 2 course and cut down on the number of days spent in the classroom.

RQF Available

This course is also available as a TQUK Regulated RQF course. The employer/Candidates has the choice of a standard First Aid Wales/ProTrainings certificate or a RQF certificate. Both are acceptable, have the same content, and meet the same learning outcomes. RQF level courses are usually needed where funding is required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose the RQF course, there are additional assessment criteria to be done with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
