What’s covered on the day?

This comprehensive half day course covers everything the student needs to know if confronted with an unresponsive non-breathing casualty that requires Basic Life Support and Automated External Defibrillation and the use of an Ambu-Bag. It follows the procedures laid down in the current Resuscitation Council UK Guidelines 2015 and builds on the algorithm for CPR. The course format provides ample opportunities for students to practice so that after the course they are more confident they could respond appropriately should the need arise.


Delegates will be assessed continuously throughout the session by the Tutor in order to be issued with a Certificate of Attendance which is valid for up to 3 years although we highly recommend an Annual refresher.

Duration: Half Day
