Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training

In the UK fewer than 10% of all the people who receive CPR outside hospital survive. Improving this figure is a major priority. CPR training can, therefore, help ensure there are more people equipped to help in an emergency, be that in the workplace or elsewhere in our communities.

Indeed, if all of the stages in the Chain of Survival are assessed promptly, and bystander CPR is carried out effectively using an AED, survival rates greater than 50% have been reported (UK Resuscitation Council, 2015).

Training course

Glasgow Caledonian University can offer CPR and AED training for health-related staff and members of the public. The course is suitable for people attending this type of training for the first time or as an update.

The course lasts for 2 hours and takes place in our state of the art Inter-professional Clinical Skills Lab, which is in the Govan Mbeki building of the university.


The cost is £125 and there are only 12 places available per course, as above.
