Basic Life Support and the Use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED)
3 Hour Session Theory & Practical
The UK Resuscitation Council promotes the importance of the Chain of Survival Process for ‘out-of-hospital’ resuscitation. In this course we teach the first three steps of this process: Early Recognition and Call for Help, Early Bystander CPR, and Early Defibrillation (AED). All elements are applicable for adults, children and infants.
Whilst being a serious subject, we make it engaging and present it in an easy-to-remember format which gives learners confidence using their new-found skills in the workplace. We also explore the causes of unconsciousness, practice the recovery position and how to assist a choking child or adult.
This is an ideal course for anyone who has no prior experience in providing this support. We aim to provide not only the skills to deal with an emergency situation, but also the confidence.
The course meets UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015.

This course aims to increase the learners’ awareness of mental health to ensure they are equipped to deal appropriately with the needs of colleagues, family members or service-users who may be experiencing mental health issues.
This course is split into two sections, the first part involves group discussion, trainer presentation, interactive discussions and scenarios. Followed by a practical-based element for the second section.
