BLS – Basic Life Support
Basic life support (BLS) and, when possible, use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the first level of care for a person in cardiac arrest. Learning to perform basic life support and to use an automated external defibrillator is an interactive process that requires both knowledge and skills. Part or all of this knowledge and some skills can be obtained by self-instruction and on-line learning. This course also includes training in how to use an AED when one is available. If there is no AED available, start BLS and wait for professional help.
BLS is fundamental to all cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Competence in Basic Life Support is a prerequisite for enrolment for all advanced-level training provided by the European Resuscitation Council.
- Our courses are renowned for providing a quality learning experience offering hands-on practical training skills that leave first aiders feeling confident to use their skills in a real-life situation. It is therefore important that participants are physically able to perform the relevant actions and techniques included in the syllabus.
- It is required to be physically present for 4hrs of both training and assessment depending on the course program under taken by the faculty. Participants must therefore be in attendance for their entire course duration to be eligible for evaluation and qualify for a certificate for an BLS Certificate
- The number of course participants per training shall be 5-20. If they are more than 20, then they will be trained in cohorts.
- It is ideal for BLS courses to be conducted at the AAPU EMS Training Centre that is well equipped to accommodate the course and the participants. However, any other training facility in a hotel, classroom environment, your workplace with adequate space for practical demonstration sessions is equally ideal.
