Basic life support (BLS) and, when possible, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the first level of care for a person in cardiac arrest. 

During our tailored seminars highly qualified instructors will guide you through the learning process that includes both knowledge sessions and skill pratice.

More and more public spaces are equiped with AEDs. This course provides training on how to use an AED when one is available. If there is no AED available, you should start BLS and wait for professional help.

Our Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) programs, and especially our CPR/AED/First Aid courses are specially designed for Healthcare providers, the Educational community, businesses and groups, family and friends.

Learning to perform basic life support and to use an automated external defibrillator is an interactive process that requires both knowledge and skills. Part or all of this knowledge and some skills can be obtained by self-instruction and on-line learning.
