Frequently Asked Questions

Is a two hour course enough?
We have found that after 2 hours, you begin to lose focus, so we decided that a 2 hour short course would benefit more. We do stay for 1 hour after the course finish in case you have any extra questions, or if you would like more practice.

Is the course accredited?
These free courses are not accredited, they are for personal knowledge and will equip you with the knowledge to help save somebodies life.

Do I get a certificate?
Every person who attends the course will receive, via email, a printable certificate of attendance issued by us to show that you have gained the knowledge.

Is the course really free?
Yes, we want as many people to learn basic life support as possible as we see it as a vital life skill. The more people in the community that are trained in BLS, the better!
If you enjoy the course and can afford it, you can make a donation to our charity, however this is not required!

Organisations, Groups and Schools

We offer completely free courses to Schools, Organisations and groups locally if you have 15 or more people wishing to gain Basic Life Support Knowledge. We can come to your venue on a date to suit you and us.
