This is achieved through the understanding of the BLS/AED algorithm and the responsibilities and treatment principles of AED use.
This course includes the latest CPR and Coronavirus recommendations.
This course covers Basic Life Support skills and includes skills for Adult, Child and Infant as well as healthcare variations with CPR. The course includes Safety, precautions, initial assessment, recovery position, CPR, compression-only CPR, CPR handover and choking. This is ideal for nurses, care workers or medical professionals needing annual updates to complete professional membership. In most cases, this course is ideal as an online-only course but if you need a practical session as well we have a network of approved instructors where we can offer the course as blended including a short practical session.
AED training is also included in the course. Learning AED skills is becoming more important with the increase in the numbers of units in the community and workplace. They are easy to use with a little training and make a real difference in the chance of survival to someone in cardiac arrest. If you have already completed any other first aid course you will understand the importance of the prompt use of an AED making this an ideal next course to take to develop your skills.
Please note that this course is an ONLINE only course that can be done whenever it suits you. If you would like to attend some practical training sessions please contact us directly because we also offer some BLENDED training courses – i.e. on-line theory sessions followed by practical sessions that are held in our training centre.
The UK Resuscitation Council 2015 guidelines state, “Short video/computer self-instruction courses, with minimal or no instructor coaching, combined with hands-on practice can be considered as an effective alternative to instructor-led BLS and AED courses.”
