Course overview

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a medical emergency that could happen to anyone, at any place and at any time.

Administering CPR in an emergency can double and even triple the survival chances of an individual experiencing a cardiac arrest. That makes a CPR life support certificate one of the most beneficial aids to have during a medical emergency with CPR first-aiders able to keep the person alive until professional help arrives.

What is covered in this course?

Occurring when the heart suddenly stops pumping, a cardiac arrest is a medical emergency that stops blood from flowing to the brain and other vital organs. 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) occur in the UK each year and only 1 in 10 people survive, making a cardiac arrest the nation’s most common yet preventable cause of death.

According to the Resuscitation Council UK, for every minute a person doesn’t receive CPR, their chance of survival drops by 10%. Proven to double or triple a person’s chance of survival when performed within the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest, CPR is a life-saving skill that’s vital to have in a medical emergency.

The CPR training course, also known as restart heart day, teaches participants how to perform CPR in a medical emergency. Participants learn how to perform CPR on a person experiencing heart failure, gaining the skills to perform chest compressions, deliver rescue breaths and use a defibrillator to keep them alive until emergency teams arrive.

With both practical and theoretical training, participants will gain the confidence to perform CPR and save a life. As part of the CPR course, participants will learn how to:

  • Perform one-person CPR
  • Perform CPR with rescue breaths
  • Perform hands-only CPR
  • Administer a shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED)

The Seven Steps of CPR

CPR training equips each participant with the skills needed to perform the seven steps of CPR:

Assess and Alert

    1. Shout for help.
    2. Shake the patient gently.

Look and listen for signs of breathing

      1. Listen for breaths.
      2. Look for the rise and fall of their chest.

Get help

        1. Call 999 and request an ambulance.

If possible, fetch a defibrillator

    1. Do not leave the person if you are on your own – have someone else get this for you, or skip this step if no-one else is around.

Perform CPR

    1. Start chest compressions with interlocked fingers.
    2. Conduct five cycles of 30 compressions of two rescue breaths in two minutes.

Switch on the defibrillator

    1. If you have a defibrillator, follow its instructions.

Continue until the person shows signs of life or advanced help arrives

    1. Stop when the AED asks you to pause or;
    2. When a paramedic arrives to take over or;
    3. The person starts to breathe again.

CPR is a medical procedure that anyone can learn and one that equips ordinary people with the skills to save lives. By making it a number one priority to learn the skills to administer CPR, people just like you and I gain the confidence and capability to prolong the survival rate of someone experiencing a cardiac arrest.

CPR training in schools

CPR training is a mandatory part of the national curriculum for England’s secondary schools – and for good reason. Attending a restart heart day gives both secondary school students and secondary school teachers the skills to increase the odds of survival for countless people suffering from cardiac arrest.

An enjoyable and highly practical activity for schools to offer, CPR courses aid people of all ages with the skills to provide the most appropriate and effective response to a cardiac arrest. All students and teachers will receive a CPR life support certificate upon completion of the course.

CPR training at work

Cardiac arrest is both sudden and unexpected. It can happen at any time and in any place. CPR is a lifesaving skill with countless benefits for any workforce. With approximately 60,000 cardiac arrests in the UK per year, workplaces that undergo CPR training are equipped with the best chances of protecting employees and colleagues in the event of a medical emergency.

CPR training for communities

CPR training is vital within local communities, potentially saving thousands of mums, dads, grandparents, children, neighbours, friends and loved ones from the detrimental effects of an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Equipping people with an understanding of the correct processes and best practices, CPR training courses give members of the community the confidence to help someone in need. As part of our CPR course, participants learn the invaluable skills of administering chest compressions, delivering rescue breaths and using a defibrillator in a medical emergency.
