Delivery & Assessment:
This is practical course delivered over 5 contact hours. It is assessed informally by the instructor during the course through a series of practical scenarios to develop skills and confidence. We have sufficient AED training devices and CPR manikins to enable students to work in very small groups, thus maximising practise time. Learners are expected to undertake some self directed study by reading course materials. Due to the practical nature of the course, Learners should wear appropriate clothing and footwear, e.g. trousers and flat footwear. As part of the registration process, Learners are also required to bring 2 forms of photographic ID with them to the first session.
During the course, you will attain the knowledge and practical competencies to manage a casualty who needs CPR and the safe use of AED. Competency in the necessary life-saving skills is assessed through 4 practical assessments:
- Use of an AED
- Recovery position
There is also a theory assessment for this course, consisting of 1 multiple choice question paper. The minimum mark is 14/20 to be considered for an overall ‘pass’.
On successful completion of this course, Learners will receive a accredited certificate. This is valid for 1 year and Leaners must retake the qualification before the certificate expiry date in order to remain qualified.
This qualification is based on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) training standard for delivery of First Aid at Work (FAW) courses for the purposes of the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 and complies with current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.
