Like adults, children can be affected by cardiac arrest (circulatory arrest). Our Pediatric Basic Life Support (PBLS & AED) course focuses on teaching the skills necessary to provide proper assistance in this emergency situation.
This course focuses on teaching basic CPR to infants and children (up to adolescence.) The course also covers the use of the AED. In addition to the prevention of circulatory arrest, the causes and specific approach to children are discussed. Through practical exercises, we want to teach you how to act in this emergency situation and gain confidence in your own ability. Our experienced instructors are all NRR certified PBLS/AED instructors, with extensive experience as healthcare professionals . They follow the official NRR curriculum, combining theory and practical implementation step by step!
