AED - 1/2 Day or EFAW - 1 Day

Welcome to TECC's Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) & Automated External Defibrillation (AED) Training (1 day)
AED Training (1/2 day)

TECC is able to offer a Health & Safety approved Emergency First Aid at Work course with AED (course conforms to the current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines. We can adapt this course to suit a particular group or organisation. It is ideal for lower risk businesses and is in accordance with the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations.

TECC EFAW & AED is run over one day at our Centre in Birmingham and includes both theory and practical sessions, in a relaxed environment, designed to boost a candidate’s confidence.

The syllabus includes:

  • First Aid Priorities
  • Managing Incidents
  • Basic Life Support
  • Examination of a Casualty
  • Unconsciousness
  • Control of Bleeding
  • Burns and Scalds
  • Regulations
  • First Aid Kits
  • Recording and Reporting
  • AED Theory & Practice

Certification is dependent on successful continuous practical assessments and completion of a theory based questionnaire. 

Those candidates who complete the course and are deemed proficient to have reached the required standards are issued with a EFAW certificate that is valid for  3 years and a AED certificate valid for 1 year*.

*Under the current guidelines it is 'strongly recommended' that first aid trained staff attend a half-day update every 12 months - before completing full re-qualification training at the three year point.

Automated External Defibrillation Course - 1/2 day

TECC offers a half-day Automated External Defibrillation (AED) course, which consists of the necessary theory and practical application of using an AED machine. AED training is provided in a manner, which is conducive to learning and informative. We are aware of the anxiety that could potentially be associated with AED training and ensure we support each candidate to leave the training feeling confident and competent. Automated External Defibrillation is the established intervention for cardiac arrest.

Scientific research acknowledges how early defibrillation is overwhelming, the singular determinant of survival being the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. Successful defibrillation declines at a rate of 7-10% with each passing minute. Administering basic life support may help to sustain a shockable rhythm, however, is not a definitive treatment.

Certification is dependent upon the practical application of using the AED machine and a short questionnaire. Those candidates who complete the course and are deemed proficient to have reached the required standards are issued with a certificate which is valid for 1 year*.
