Basic Life Support - Surrey First Aid Training

Our Basic Life Support and AED courses will equip learners with the skills and confidence to give effective CPR and Resuscitation until help arrives to help achieve the chain of survival and positive casualty outcomes.

Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim's chance of survival, but only 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. The chance of surviving unattended CPR out of hospital is just 8% and with every minute delay in getting the chain of survival completed, including early defibrillation and early advance life support, this statistic becomes even less. The UK has one of the worst cardiac arrest survival rates in Europe.

Our basic life support is designed to give you the confidence and competence to act in the event of a cardiac arrest. It will teach you the skills necessary to keep CPR effective in a patient who is not breathing or not breathing normally  until further medical help arrives, it also incorporates the use of a defibrillator from your workplace or public access.

It is not just legal requirements which make learning CPR necessary, it is also the thought that CPR is an essential lifesaving skill and every person should have the skills needed to step in an act.  

We teach this course to school teachers, school children, parents, workplaces and even doctors and dental surgeries who have a need to ensure their CPR training is up to date.

We now deliver these session online using our online zoom programme.
