Other Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)
Q: Will attending this training make me competent?

A: We have a variety of different training equipment and tools available. The training will be relevant and transferable. However, if you have a specific requirement for a particular type of equipment, please make this clear during the booking process, and the team will ensure this is provided.
Alternatively, we can use your own equipment for training.
1. What is automated external defibrillator (AED) certification?
AED certification demonstrates you have been trained to safely and effectively use an automated external defibrillator in a cardiac emergency. It ensures that the certified person possesses the knowledge and skills necessary to operate an AED effectively in life-threatening situations.
2. Is an automated external defibrillator the same as CPR?
No, an AED provides electric shocks to help restore normal heart rhythm while CPR involves chest compressions to maintain blood flow. They work best together.
An AED is a machine that gives an electric shock to the heart of someone who has stopped breathing and their heart has stopped beating. This shock can help to start the heart beating again.
CPR is a first aid technique that helps to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and other important organs when the heart stops beating. It involves chest compressions and rescue breaths.
AEDs and CPR are often used together to save lives in an emergency.
3. Can anyone use an automated external defibrillator (AED) without training?
It is not advised. Proper training ensures you use an AED safely, confidently, and effectively in an emergency. Untrained use risks harm.
AED Training helps people learn how to use AEDs correctly and respond effectively in high-stress situations. However, sometimes untrained people may need to use AEDs under the guidance of emergency services.
4. How long is a defibrillator course?
AED courses typically last around 2-3 hours including theory and practical skills training. Refresher courses may be shorter. Generally, the length of an AED course depends on the program and what level of training you want. Basic training courses usually last a few hours, while advanced courses can last several days.
5. Do you need to be qualified to use an AED?
Yes, using an AED in public spaces legally requires AED training or certification. Training teaches proper protocols.
Being certified means you have been trained to use an AED correctly and can make a life-saving difference in a cardiac emergency.
6. Can anyone use an automated external defibrillator?
With appropriate AED training, anyone can learn to use the AED safely. Training will help you feel confident and know what to do in a cardiac emergency. This could save a life.
7. How much does an AED training cost?
The cost of AED training varies depending on where you do it and what level of training you need. Caring for Care has a competitive training price in the UK. Please discuss your training AED & CPR needs with our training. You can call or send us an email.
8. How long does CPR certification last?
CPR certification typically remains valid for one year before requiring a refresher course to stay up-to-date on the latest protocols.
9. What comes first AED or CPR?
For sudden cardiac arrest, deliver CPR first until you power on the AED and it is ready to administer a shock.
If someone has a cardiac arrest, start CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) first. This involves chest compressions and rescue breaths, which help to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and other important organs.
Once you have started CPR, use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) if one is available. An AED is a machine that can give an electric shock to the heart to help it start beating again.
10. Is AED training the same as CPR?
No, AED and CPR training may be combined but AED focuses specifically on using defibrillator devices.
11. Can anyone who has received CPR and AED training use an AED?
Yes, completing training enables you to legally and safely use an AED in an emergency.
12. Can you do CPR and AED together?
Yes, you should do CPR and use an AED together if someone has a cardiac arrest. CPR helps to keep blood and oxygen flowing to the brain and other important organs, while the AED can help to start the heart beating again. This gives the person the best chance of survival.
13. What does AED stand for in CPR training?
AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is a machine that can give an electric shock to the heart of someone who has stopped breathing and their heart has stopped beating. This shock can help to start the heart beating again.
AEDs are important in emergency response and are often used with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). It’s commonly covered along with CPR in first aid training.
The training was very good, easy to follow & I liked that I had the oppurtunity to practice.
