Synopsis

Overview

Did you know, heart attack is the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest in Singapore? Also, among 3,000 cardiac arrest cases in Singapore every year, only 3% survive? That’s not all – many of these heart attacks happen outside of the hospital, such as at home or at the workplace.

Learn how you can respond to and deal with these emergencies – and help to save lives. Sign up for our CPR + AED course today.

This course aims to equip participants with the skills necessary to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and utilise an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), when necessary. Numerous studies have demonstrated that using the AED and conducting CPR in a timely manner can increase the casualty’s likelihood of survival.

This CPR + AED Course, specifically developed for participants with no medical training or knowledge, is presented in just 4 hours. It enables you to efficiently perform CPR as well as apply and operate the AED during cardiac arrest scenarios. The programme follows the standards and procedures outlined by the Singapore Resuscitation and First Aid Council (SRFAC).

Duration: – 4 hours (Classroom)

Course Fee: S$80
