SWISS RESUSCITATION COUNCIL CERTIFIED BASIC LIFE SUPPORT COURSES

Swiss Resuscitation Council Certified Basic Life Support Courses

Every hour in Switzerland, 6 people have a heart attack, stroke or sudden cardiac arrest. This could happen in your school or workplace. It’s not enough to have a First Aid Kit or a defibrillator on the wall – you and your staff members need to know how to use them.

HealthFirst provides practical and interactive Basic Life Support training courses so that in your school, company or organisation, there are trained First Aiders who are certified and confident to act in an emergency.

These sessions can also form an alternative team-building event, training a group of your colleagues in essential life skills whilst they work together to rapidly manage realistic emergency situations.

Our courses are fully certified by the Swiss Resuscitation Council and comply with their current guidelines. They can be delivered in native English and French.
