QA Level 2 Award in First Aid at Work Annual Refresher (with AED & Catastrophic Bleeding)


Did you know that following a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a casualty’s chance of survival by 10%?
Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers, and yet statistics show that most of the British public are unaware of the life-saving difference they can make by performing CPR and defibrillation.
The QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (QCF) qualification has been designed to provide candidates with the skills needed to administer safe, prompt and effective basic life support and use an AED safely in emergency situations.
With an estimated 60,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occurring every year in the UK alone, make sure you are prepared!
As such, it is strongly recommended that first aiders undertake annual refresher training to practise their skills and update their knowledge on the latest first aid procedures.

HSE guidelines state that employers should ensure their first aiders remain competent to perform their role?
The First Aid at Work Annual Refresher qualification is specifically designed to allow qualified first aiders to update their first aid skills yearly, until requalification training is required. Successful candidates will leave with a renewed confidence, having had the opportunity to practise essential first
aid procedures, as well as learn the latest techniques needed to deal with an emergency situation. 
By Combining these two courses, you are not only saving time and money, but also endsuring your AED skills remain up to date and that you are satisfying the HSE requirements for Annual Refresher Training.
