Defibrillation is a crucial step in the chain of survival, however it must be delivered within minutes of a cardiac arrest occurring. This is now possible due to the Governments current initiative to place defibrillators into public places e.g. leisure centres and police stations. This will mean more and more work for defibrillation instructors – instructors like you!
The Lifesigns Group will train you to become a defibrillation instructor. This will enable you to deliver training in one-day defibrillation courses. We are able to offer a certificate to all successful students that are trained by you (under the European Resuscitation Council guidelines).
To qualify for this course, candidates must hold a current First Aid at Work Instructors certificate (or equivalent) and have an appropriate teaching, training or coaching background.
The cost of this course includes a training defibrillator, CD Rom and instructors pack.
