Changes to Resuscitation Council UK guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in October 2015 mean that HSE have revised the Emergency First Aid and First Aid at Work syllabuses. From 31st December 2016, all workplace first aiders must be trained in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), as the guidelines now state that the management of a casualty requiring CPR is to request an AED.
First Response Training has adopted this change early, to ensure all delegates on our first aid courses are trained and assessed on how to use an AED and meet the forthcoming changes.
