Medical professionals with a duty to respond in an emergency are required to complete annual BLS training. You can complete this course as initial training or as your annual refresher.

With ProTrainings, you are no longer required to spend hours in a classroom. Our blended training enables you to complete all the course content online at your convenience. All that is left is to complete a short skill evaluation to meet the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of an equivalent classroom course.

The UK Resuscitation Council 2015 guidelines state, "Short video/computer self-instruction courses, with minimal or no instructor coaching, combined with hands-on practice can be considered as an effective alternative to instructor-led BLS and AED courses."

ProTrainings Basic Life Support courses have been designed to meet all the required learning outcomes and are aligned to the Skills for Health UK Core Skills Training Framework or UK-CSTF.  This includes both level 2 adult and paediatric patient care.  The course is also Skills for Care Endorsed and follows the requirements set out in the Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines for adult and Paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) basic life support (BLS).

This course covers basic life support skills and includes skills for adults, children, and infants as well as healthcare variations on infant CPR. The course includes safety, precautions, initial assessment, recovery position, CPR, compression-only CPR, CPR handover and choking. This course complies with the latest 2015 ERC and UK Resuscitation Council Guidelines and is aimed at Healthcare Professionals with a duty to respond.

We also have a national network of instructors who can come to your workplace to deliver the training and to work within your time schedules.  Taking this training as a blended course saves valuable patient contact time ensuring that nothing is cut from the training course.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
