Validated by Highfield Awarding Body of Compliance (HABC), an OFQUAL-regulated awarding organisation, this qualification covers the core competencies of the UK Resuscitation Council and is designed to instruct candidates in the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).

The course will cover the following subjects:
