PROVIDE CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR)
Check out what our students say about us!
Our CPR course provides you with the skills and knowledge to recognise when someone is unconscious and not breathing normally and increase their chance of survival by calling an ambulance and performing potentially life saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), including using a defibrillator, until emergency services arrive to take over.

Our main priority is ensuring our student’s feel safe while they train. To do this we have ensured the following:
Each student has their own first aid training equipment which has been sanitised prior to use.
Each student will have their own designated space, adhering to social distancing measures.
CPR rescue breaths will be simulated to ensure no contact takes place.
Hand sanitiser and gloves available at all times.
Participants must have the physical capacity to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on the floor.
Individuals undertaking this course will be expected to complete both written and practical assessment tasks.
