The BLS course stands for Basic Life Support using the automated external defibrillator (AED). This training focuses on adult CPR.

Course content

Every year, 15,000 people in the Netherlands suffer cardiac arrest (circulatory arrest) outside the hospital. Every week that’s 300 people: young, old, male or female, it can happen to anyone. A quality CPR performed significantly increases the chance of survival.

Our BLS & AED course focuses on teaching the skills necessary to improve the quality of basic CPR. One must not only know what to do, but also have the courage to take action. Our experienced instructors are all NRR certified BLS instructors, with extensive experience as healthcare professionals. They follow the official NRR curriculum, which combines theory and practical implementation step by step. If desired, training can be customized for companies/institutions.
