QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator

Qualification Overview

This qualification forms part of the QA First Aid suite of qualifications. The qualification and learning outcomes are based on the recommendations of:

  • The Resuscitation Council (UK)
  • Skills for Health Assessment Principles for First Aid Qualifications

This QA qualification outlines a range of knowledge and practical skills in providing basic life support (BLS) and using an automated external defibrillator (AED) safely. Learners will practise assessing and managing a casualty who needs BLS and the safe use of an AED.

This qualification specification provides information for Centres about the delivery of the QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (RQF) and includes the unit information, assessment methods and quality assurance arrangements.

Objective

The objective of the qualification is to benefit Learners by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and safely use an AED.

Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to assist the Learner to update and continue professional development (CPD) and develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide BLS and use an AED in the workplace or other emergency situations.

Intended audience
Note: the GLH for this qualification may be significantly reduced if it is delivered as a bolt on and in conjunction with other related qualifications such as the QA Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work where there is duplication of learning.

Structure

This qualification contains 1 mandatory unit with a Total Qualification Time (TQT) of 5 hours. 

Learners must complete all assessments in the unit successfully within the registration period to achieve the qualification. The maximum period to achieve this qualification, including any referrals is 3 weeks.

TQT is the total number of hours required for a Learner to achieve this qualification. It has 2 elements:

  • Guided Learning Hours (GLH) is the time a Learner is being taught and assessed under the immediate guidance of a Trainer/Assessor, which for this qualification is 4 GLH (3 hrs 40 mins minimum), and
  • The number of hours a Learner will reasonably be likely to spend in preparation and study as directed by, but not under the immediate guidance or supervision of a Trainer, e.g. pre-course reading, which for this qualification is 1 hour

Note: the GLH for this qualification may be significantly reduced if it is delivered as a bolt on and in conjunction with other related qualifications such as the QA Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work where there is duplication of learning.

The course is accredited and certified by Qualsafe Awards.
