About This Course

Following a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a casualty’s chance of survival by 10%. Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the UK’s biggest killers, and yet statistics show that most of the British public are unaware of the life-saving difference they can make by performing CPR and defibrillation. Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Community Education Skills 4 Life offers a half-day basic life support training course that covers the use of CPR and AEDs.
