EFR CPR and AED Course

What is the EFR CPR and AED Course

This very practical course will enable students to use an AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course cover the use of AEDs but also includes vital training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and choking procedures. It covers Adult, Child & Infant techniques. Our courses concentrate on providing you with the confidence and willingness to ‘have a go’ with lots of hands on practise time.

Importance of CPR and AED Training

CPR can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, and more that 85 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home – not a hospital. Many victims do not have a history of heart disease and appear healthy however, fewer than eight percent of those who suffer a cardiac arrest survive.

Being able to provide appropriate care quickly in an emergency situation can improve patient outcome, reduce recovery time and reduce the chance of them from having a temporary or long term disability. As a bystander you benefit from learning how to remain calm and make informed decisions in an emergency situation.


The EFR CPR & AED Course lasts for a minimum of three hours and consists of theoretical and practical work. A CPR & AED attendance certificate will be issued to all successful candidates.


Assessment is ongoing by the instructor in respect of the student’s practical ability, along with a multiple choice question paper.

A really good training course, very professionally presented by Tracy. I’ve been on lots of training courses over the years and too often they can be soporific! Tracy is one of those rare training professionals who can deliver training and keep a person interested all day! Great course. Highly recommended!

Rutland first aid are professional yet kept the courses fun and interactive and use some very interesting props. As a driving instructor I wanted to be able to deal with any issues with my students but also any issues I may come across on the roads. Highly recommended.

Couldn't recommend Tracy and her team enough for a first aid course. Having to renew it every 3 years used to send me to sleep. Not with these guys! Professional, up to date and with lots of toys to play with, without the death by powerpoint.
