Basic Life Support (Adult & Child)

Basic Life Support (Adult & Child) is an increasingly popular short first aid course that is ideal for the non-clinical role colleagues who work in GP practices, Dental surgeries, and Community health centres.

Our Basic Life Support (Adult & Child) qualification is OFQUAL regulated and is accredited by QNUK  one of the largest awarding organisation for health & safety and first aid qualifications in England & Wales. This qualification meets all national and the UK Resuscitation Council  training guidelines

Our learners will learn those skills and gain the essential knowledge to successfully manage an unconscious casualty and they will learn how to give effective lifesaving CPR to a casualty and also be able to use an AED safely and confidently too.

Once our learners have learned those essential CPR and AED skills they will learn how to put the casualty into the recovery position to protect the airway till the emergency services arrived on the scene.

Choking can be an occurrence when casualties have respiratory problems, so learners will get to use state-of-the-art choking vests so they can master their techniques and skills to help a casualty who is choking.

You never know when these skills will come in handy and wasn’t so long ago our MD had to use these very skills to save a young boy’s life, here is the blog about the incident.

Over 60,000 people have cardiac arrests outside the hospital each year in the UK, a basic life support course like this could make a very big difference to someone who is having a really bad day. It could be a loved one, work colleague, or someone in the street.
