Our Basic Life Support (BLS) course covers Basic training in how to respond to common first aid emergencies. The course includes training and practice in scene assessment, to help revive, resuscitate, or sustain a person who is experiencing cardiac arrest or respiratory failure of some sort. This could include a drowning victim, heart attack or stroke patient, or any scenario where breathing or heartbeat have been compromised.

The primary skills taught in the BLS course include basic mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and CPR (chest compressions to circulate blood). No medical equipment is needed and there are no invasive procedures taught in BLS.

The course consists of a step by step theory session, and practicing the resuscitation exercises on a "dummy", and demonstrating correct response in role-play situations.
