Welcome to our CPR course. In this course we will show you how to recognise if someone is unconscious, how to open their airway, check if they are breathing and how to administer CPR to someone who is not breathing. We will be covering some emotive and difficult topics, please feel free to contact us or speak with your teachers if you find any of the content disturbing or unclear.

At the end of this course you will have all the theoretical knowledge to potentially save someone’s life. Ideally you will get the chance to attend a practical course to consolidate your learning and practice the skills on a mannequin.
