Councillor Michelle Tanfield, the council’s cabinet member responsible for leisure, said: “Our leisure centre staff are already fully trained in the use of the machines and other life-saving techniques.
“We’re keen to extend that knowledge into the wider community and give people the confidence that they can help in an emergency.”
A spokesman for Fenland District Council said there are now 15 defibrillators sited at various locations around March following a campaign orchestrated by Councillor Rob Skoulding during his tenure as mayor, alongside life saving equipment in other towns.
The course will be run by Caroline Ormiston, a member of Fenland District Council’s New Vision Fitness staff.
Another one is planned for September.
