Basic Life Support (Adult & Child)

First aid training in Basic Life Support (Adult and Child) is a must-have for anyone working in non-clinical environments like community health centres, dental offices, and general practices.

In just three hours of tutor-guided instruction, you can become qualified to provide basic life support to adults and children alike.

You will learn how to give high-quality CPR to a non-breathing, unconscious casualty and how to operate an AED (defibrillator) safely and confidently. How to treat a patient who is unconscious but breathing, what to do if a patient is choking, and how to keep a patient monitored until assistance comes.

These are the same techniques that our MD used to save the life of a young child in a coffee shop not long ago; you can read about it in the blog. These life-saving abilities might come in handy at any moment.

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