The aim of this research was to evaluate knowledge of hands-only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in Galician schoolteachers of childhood, primary and secondary education, after video-training process, comparing the degree of forgetfulness after one week (G1), one month (G2) and two months (G3). 126 teachers aged 25-64 years (M = 44.23 SD = 7.74) participated, of whom 100 (79.4%) were women and 26 (20.6%) men. The results show statistically significant differences in the mean number of correct answers between the initial and final questionnaire in all the dimensions studied [i.e. Global (p < .001); Adult CPR (p < .001) and AED and emergency telephone (p < .001)], between the groups (G1, G2 and G3), globally (p = .001) and knowledge of CPR parameters (p < .001). Significant differences were found in the mean depth of only-hands CPR in adults (men vs. women; p = .046). With respect to the time of use of the AED, there are differences in applying an effective discharge between groups G2 and G3 (p = .028), with less time in G2. After the application of a training programme there is an increase in theoretical knowledge in the teaching staff and this is maintained at least until after 2 months with a slight decrease. As for the learning of skills in only-hands CPR and the application of the AED, they are maintained in the same way over time, at least up to two months.
