The FAA Level 2 Award (QCF) in CPR and AED is designed to equip people with the skills necessary to competently and confidently use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) when performing CPR in an emergency.
AED’s are now becoming more commonplace, both in public areas and the workplace. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately trained 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 care and use of an AED but it also includes vital training in resuscitation and choking procedures.
The 1 day CPR and AED course requires a minimum of 6 contact hours in the classroom, consisting of both practical and theoretical activities.
During the CPR and AED course a range of subjects are covered including:-
- Responsibilities of the First Aider and Reporting
- Assessment of the situation
- Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
- Infection control
- Heart attacks
- AED safety
- AED functions
- Defibrillation procedures
- Paediatric defibrillation
Assessment and Certification
Practical assessment by the instructor is ongoing throughout the day. With oral questioning and a multiple choice paper to check underpinning knowledge. Students who successfully complete the course will be awarded the FAA Level 2 Award (QCF) in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) valid for 3 years, at the end of which, the student will need to complete the course again in full to be re-certified for a further 3 years. It is recommended that students attend annual refresher courses (2hours) during the 3 year period.
A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated on this course at any one time and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.
