Obtain a Defibrillator at Zero Cost

Obtain a Free AED

EFR Training enable organisations to obtain a free Defisign Life AED (automated external defibrillator), a lifesaving device which many workplaces and education centres are now legally obliged to install.

The incentive requires that a minimum amount of staff (48) are trained each year* in either Emergency First Aid at Work or Emergency Paediatric First Aid and in return we provide you with a new DefiSign Automated External Defibrillator for free.

The cost of training can be reclaimed using the Fundae so effectively your organisation will be able to increase the number of trained first aiders and install an automated external defibrillator at zero cost.

If your organisation needs help with the Fundae process then our gestor is at hand and specialises in this area. We have also prepared a guide on how this process works. Read more

*Training must be completed over 1 or maximum 2 consecutive days each year.
