Basic Life Support and AED Training

You can save lives

Having a trained professional on hand to provide basic life support can mean the difference between life and death. In some cases, the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) is what saves a person’s life. Our short and fun, practical AED training course will enable you to provide life support, resuscitation and you’ll feel confident using an AED.
