Life Support Training

Rapid response to emergency situations can save lives, making life support training critically important for healthcare staff. These resources can help train participants to provide basic life support to people of all ages, and can act as refresher material for those who have already completed similar training.

Survival rates for an unconscious individual are increased by up to 60 percent through prompt resuscitation. With this in mind, life support training aims to increase learners’ confidence when responding to emergency situations. This enables them to act swiftly and effectively to give the affected individual the best chance of recovery.

This training also outlines the different approaches when providing life support to adults, children, and infants, in order to minimise accidental harm being caused in the process of resuscitation. Furthermore, life support training explains how to recognise and respond to cardiopulmonary arrest, including safe usage of defibrillators.

Our extensive list of resources include life support online training, and a variety of face-to-face training courses. Scroll down for all course options, or refine your search using the available filters.
