Basic Life Support Course

Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator

Sudden cardiac arrest is one the UK’s biggest killers, and yet statistics show that most of the British public are unaware of the life-saving difference they can make by performing CPR and defibrillation. Our 1/2 day Basic Life Support course can help you gain the confidence and ability to save somebodies life.

Did you know that following a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a casualty’s chance of survival by 10%?

The QA Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification that has been specifically designed to provide candidates with the knowledge and skills needed to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an AED safely in emergency situations.With an estimated 60,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occurring every year in the UK alone, make sure you are prepared!
