The training is aimed at Waterfront businesses and their staff, as well as wild swimmers. 

The nationally recognised AED course will be run by The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS) and lasts 4 hours in total.

Each candidate will receive a certificate confirming their knowledge and ability to carry out CPR in conjunction with a defibrillator when they have shown their ability to an acceptable standard, which is valid for two years.

Two training sessions will take place, with 48 spaces available in total: 
Date: Tuesday 21 September 2021
Location:  The Waterfront Pub, The Hoe, Plymouth, PL1 3DQ.

The course is available on a first come, first served basis and please apply by Friday 10 September. 

The Council, Plymouth Waterfront Partnership and Wave After Wave have recently installed five new defibrillators across Plymouth waterfront at:

  • Commercial Wharf, Barbican
  • Terrace Café, The Hoe
  • Coffee Shack, West Hoe

The defibrillators are part of a wave of improvements, which has been made possible through the Government’s Getting Building Fund.

There are already five other public debrillators along the waterfront, located at Yacht Haven, Mount Batten Watersports Centre, Liner Lookout (The Hoe), Cap'n Jaspers and Royal William Yard.
