AED is a life-saving technique that is revolutionizing first aid and prehospital cardiac care. This St. John Ambulance program offers a review and practice of CPR skills as well as training in the use of AED equipment.
The all-new ZOLL AED 3™ automated external defibrillator makes the best even better. It improves on the best support for rescuers, provided by the AED Plus® since 2002. Designed and built upon years of usability research with both trained and untrained rescuers, it’s easy to use. And it’s equipped with improved Real CPR Help®, ZOLL’s real-time CPR feedback technology.
The AED program includes training in the specific type of AED equipment used by clients, machine maintenance and documentation. Our instructors have the highest expertise based on our commitment to ongoing training, review and active involvement with the use of the equipment in real-life situations.
This program is offered in half day format or full day training session, depending on the student’s previous qualifications. Students who have a current certificate in CPR require only the half day session. This course has a written exam.
