BLS Courses

Our Basic Life Support (BLS) courses will no longer be offered as separate Part 1 and Part 2 sessions. Instead, we are transitioning to a comprehensive package that utilises a blended learning approach. This involves an online component followed by a face-to-face practical session.

The HeartCode course is the selection that registered nurses/midwives, doctors, paramedics, dentists, physiotherapists, and other medical professionals, should select. This course is designed to equip individuals with advanced skills and knowledge necessary for managing cardiac emergencies.

The HeartSaver course, is the selection for Health Care Assistants (HCAs) and individuals with minimal clinical experience but who may encounter cardiac arrest situations in their workplace. This course will provide the fundamental training essential for effective response in emergency situations.

This updated approach ensures that participants receive tailored instruction aligned with their roles and responsibilities, optimising their preparedness and proficiency in life-saving techniques.
