1. Qualification Overview

 This qualification, and the learning outcomes covered thereby, are based on the recommendations of the 

Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Skills for Health Assessment Principles for First Aid Qualifications.

1.1 Aim of Qualification

 The aim of the qualification is to enable Learners to attain the knowledge and competencies needed to 

deal with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillation (AED). Learners 

should be able to demonstrate the practical administration of safe, prompt, effective CPR and use of an 

AED in emergency situations. 

1.2 Structure of the Qualification

 This qualification is based on 6 minimum guided learning hours * 

Mandatory unit

Unit Number Unit Title Level Credit Value Guided Learning

Automated External Defibrillation 2 1 6

There are no optional units in this qualification.

 *Guided learning hours are provided as a guide to the estimated hours an average learner would 

study to gain the unit. This does not have to be face to face instructional time and can include self 

directed study at home, such as reading course handouts and further self study. We recommend that 

the minimum face to face time that the CPR and AED qualification should be delivered in is 3 hours 55 

minutes contact teaching (excludes breaks).

1.3 Intended Audience

 The qualification is designed for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and 

community activities, to provide First Aid and/or use an AED when dealing with an emergency situation.

1.4 Entry Requirements

 There are no formal entry requirements but in order to benefit from the learning, Learners should 

possess communication skills sufficient to allow them to address the assessment requirements of the 

qualification. It is also preferable if the Learner has recently attended a suitable First Aid course and 

gained a qualification such as the QA Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) or the QA 

Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) or equivalent.

1.5 Requalification Requirements

 The QA Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation (QCF) 

is only valid for a period of 1 year, within which time the Learner will need to re-take the course and the 

assessment in order to remain qualified.
