Basic Life Support (Adult & Child)

Basic Life Support (Adult and Child) is an excellent first aid course for those working in non-clinical settings such as general practice, dental clinics or community health centres.

It covers basic life support for adults and children, and the qualification can be obtained in just three hours of tutor-guided learning.

You will learn how to perform high-quality CPR on a non-breathing unconscious casualty and how to use an AED (defibrillator) safely and confidently. How to position an unconscious but breathing casualty in the recovery position, monitor the casualty until emergency services arrive, and treat a choking casualty.

These are the same skills that our MD used to save the life of a small child in a coffee shop not to long ago; you can read about the story in the blog. You never know when you will need these life-saving skills.

This first aid qualification is accredited by Qualifications Network UK, regulated by OFQUAL, and meets the training requirements set forth by Resuscitation Council UK.
