HeartSaver AED Course

The Heartsaver AED Course provides the learners with knowledge in the basic techniques of adult, child and infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an AED. Phoenix STS is an Irish Heart Foundation Affiliated Training Site.

The HeartSaver AED Course will equip you with the skills necessary to respond to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. The course is video-based and recognised by the Irish Heart Foundation and the American Heart Association. The HeartSaver AED Course teaches skills with the American Heart Association’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching technique.

This allows instructors to observe the learners, provide feedback and guide the learner on the skills which they have acquired. By the end of the course, the learner will have completed numerous cycles of CPR while using an AED. The course is designed this way so that the learner can feel more comfortable and confident if ever asked to carry out the skills in real life. Phoenix Safety Training Services is registered with the Irish Heart Foundation as an approved training site.

We train with the ZOLL AED 3 trainer give you in real life training….. We also offer Public HeartSaver AED Training Courses in our training centre in Longford.
