CPD First Aid Training for Dentists

About This Course

First Aid for Dentists: Compliant CPD The GDC has identified Medical Emergencies training as one of the three highly recommended topics to be completed as part of the minimum verifiable Continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. To comply with GDC standards, all dental practices should carry out regular medical emergency training, following guidance and training updates from the Resus Council. A GDC registrant must complete at least 10 hours of medical emergencies in each CPD cycle and recommends that you do at least two hours every year.
