Working alongside doctors, nurses and paramedics from all over the country, Calon Heart Screening aims to equip people with vital emergency and life-saving skills. Including training on how to safely use a defibrillator – the important knowledge and actions that could save a life, – we regularly see the incredible difference that bystanders can make to patient survival.
We offer CPR and defibrillator training to schools, sports clubs and communities all over Wales and all training is delivered by qualified professionals. Our aim is to ensure people are able to act confidently and without hesitation in an emergency.
Despite the petition (P-04-396) calling on the Welsh Assembly to introduce emergency life support skills as part of the national curriculum, there are no current plans for its inclusion, so Calon Heart Screening have been delivering this unique training project in schools and communities across Wales. With the expertise of medical professionals such as anaesthetic and intensive care doctors (who use these skills every day), we are providing a unique and essential program accessible to everyone in Wales.
Hour-long sessions provide a thorough understanding of basic life support, with a special focus on the science behind life support which has stimulated an interest in the health service. By passing on our experience and skills we will give the students the confidence to deal with medical emergencies and ultimately help in saving lives.
Each session lasts about 1 hour
Typical classes minimum 10 and maximum 50 attendees
Public Access Defibrillator training

Teaching by experienced health care professionals
Engraining a sense of personal responsibility for the well-being of others
Unique to Wales

With the current situation and uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus we have decided to halt all our defibrillator and awareness training sessions until further notice. We have not taken this decision lightly but due to these worrying times, we have a responsibility to protect both the public and tour trainers. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.
