The topics covered by this qualification are regarded by Skills for Health as being important in maintaining good practice in the safe, prompt and effective administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillation.

All successful students will be issued with a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation Certificate, along with a wallet-sized plastic card detailing their achievement.  To comply with current requirements in the medical, dental, care sector and to meet the AED recommendations of the UK Resuscitation Council guidelines, you must take this qualification again after one year.  Please contact ProTrainings for further information.

This course gives learners the opportunity to gain a formally recognised regulated qualification. If you require funding, a regulated qualification is often required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose our course leading to a regulated qualification, there are additional assessment criteria to be undertaken with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
