Automated External Defibrillation
The simplicity of Defibrillation training really does represent how easy these devices actually are to use.Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now starting to become very much “the norm” in certain workplaces and work environments. This truly marvellous piece of equipment actually gives a unconscious casualty that is not breathing up to 8 times the chance of survival if used in the first 4 minutes. The training is delivered in a way so even someone with no resuscitation experience or training can operate this device safety within a maximum of 4 hours. Training can be delivered with us at one of our training centres or we can come and deliver the training with you.

Our team of trainers are not just professional teachers the majority are members of the Ambulance Service and other emergency services. They deliver factual training based on current guidelines and most importantly experience. This ensures you are being taught by a professional that has actually done in real terms what they are teaching you.
In Safe Hands has a unique facility for training. Known as the ‘Simulation Centre’ students are taught in a multi environment setting. This includes a Kitchen, Bar Area, Lounge, Car, Outdoor area, Bathroom, Bedroom, and a Children’s play area.
