FAA Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation
Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty's survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.
This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence.
Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in resuscitation and choking procedures.
A minimum of six contact hours in the classroom, consisting of practical and theoretical activities.
•Responsibilities and reporting •Resuscitation •Choking •Assessment of the situation •Heart attacks •AED safety •Dealing with an unresponsive casualty •Infection control •Paediatric defibrillation •AED functions •Defibrillation procedures
Summative practical assessment is ongoing by the instructor, along with a written assessment at the end of the day. A three-year Level 2 Award (Level 6 in Scotland) will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required. It is recommended that students attend refresher training during the three years of the course and after 3 years the full course must be completed to renew the qualification.
A maximum of 12 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 16 years of age.
