Resuscitation (Basic Life Support) Level 2 - Paediatrics

Understand your role and responsibility in a practical interactive course looking at emergency response and interventions in basic life support for children.


This course builds on level 1 to provide training specifically related to paediatric resuscitation (ages 1 year to 16 years). Interactive learning helps learners understand both legal and practical knowledge on policy, emergency response, chest compressions, airway management, and the use of lung ventilations and AED’s. Underlying all this knowledge is the importance of the individual’s roles and responsibilities in their response.

Video and podcasts created with experts have been developed specifically for this course, alongside the use of video from The Red Cross.
