Advanced Resuscitation Course

Our advanced resuscitation course demonstrates the use of oxygen resuscitation equipment for first aid officers at workplaces.

Our advanced resuscitation courses includes incorporating first aid devices including oxygen equipment, bag valve masks and defibrillators for specialised first aid treatment. Proper use before an ambulance arrives in an emergency situation may mean the difference between life and death.

Workplaces or organisations operating in remote areas where medical assistance can take considerable time to arrive often try advanced resuscitation courses. Advanced resuscitation personnel can be counted on to plan and handle the emergency response before specialists arrive.

This can also include a wider variety of cases such as severe trauma, sudden cardiac arrest, large-scale accident management, and mentally distressed and drug-affected injuries. 

Should you require to refresh your CPR qualification (recommended every 12 months) you can do so by attending one of our CPR courses. If you require Advanced First Aid training please check out our Advanced First Aid course.
