Gen 9 - What basic AED training is included in the new NPLQ and what does that mean for candidates and Trainer Assessors?

This will include how to turn an AED on and how to follow the instructions in an emergency situation, candidates will not receive an AED qualification. If candidates wish to receive an AED qualification they will need to complete the 1.5 hour (minimum) bolt on for AED. The AED bolt on must be delivered by an AED TA.
