About this course

Basic Life Support training is mandatory for registered nurses and healthcare assistants; however, it can be beneficial to all.

Survival rates for an unconscious casualty who is not breathing can be increased through prompt resuscitation. With this in mind, our BLS training course aims to increase learners’ confidence when responding to emergency situations. This interactive training course covers both the practical and theory-based elements of Basic Life Support. The content follows the guidelines of the Resuscitation Council (UK) and includes the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) and the DRABC approach to resuscitation and how to place an unconscious but breathing person/s in the recovery position.
