Automated External Defibrillation (AED) Training
Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is a life-saving technique that is revolutionizing first aid and pre-hospital cardiac care. The AED program at A.S.A.P. offers a review and practice of CPR skills as well as training in the use of AED equipment. In Canada, thousands of people of all ages suffer sudden cardiac arrest each year. The early administration of CPR and AED vastly increases a victim's chance of survival.
A.S.A.P. also offers training in the specific type of AED equipment used by a client, including its basic care and documentation on its use. Our instructors have the highest level of expertise and are committed to ongoing training, review, and active involvement with the use of the equipment in real-life situations.
