1-Day CPR and AED (Level 2)

Level 2 CPR and AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation) : 1 day course

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This very practical course will enable your learners to use the AED competently and with confidence.

Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but it also includes vital training in resuscitation and choking procedures.


A range of subjects are covered including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Paediatric defibrillation
  • Defibrillation procedures
  • Resuscitation
  • Choking
  • Heart attacks
  • AED safety and Functions
  • Infection control

CPR and AED training is fast becoming a necessity. Nuco Training not only offer this dedicated CPR and AED training course but also the new 4 hour Basic Life Support and Safe use of an AED course.

A recent UK Government report states …

It is estimated that around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year in the UK. Overall survival rates vary across England, but range between 2% and 12%. However, survival rates as high as 75% have been reported where CPR and defibrillation are delivered promptly. This is why the statutory guidance on supporting pupils at school with medical conditions advises schools to consider purchasing an AED as part of their first-aid equipment.”

This qualification lasts for 3 years. To renew their qualification after 3 years, delegates will need to retake the full course. However, it is recommended that, during the 3 year period, delegates attend annual refresher courses.


The course Instructor is responsible for determining whether delegates pass or fail based on practical and oral assessment throughout the course, i.e. by observation and oral questioning, as well as the completion of a multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course. The Instructor will only award a pass if they believe that delegates have displayed the requisite understanding and competencies at the end of each session throughout the course and successfully completed the question paper.
