Thanks for visiting our Prepared to Save a Life page. We’d love to get you involved in our mission to get a life saver on every street corner. All we ask is that you take two minutes to watch our video and then you can decide if you want to get involved.
What's involved? Merely taking this free online course is all we ask - so that, if you witness or come across an emergency situation, you would know what to do to help save a life - and that's it. Just five ten minute sections covering DR ABC; CPR; Bleeding; Choking and Stroke - and you can then print off a certificate of achievement stating that you are now 'Prepared to Save a Life'
Please watch the short video to help you decide:
My mum did this course and said it was really good, so my sister had a go, and said it was epic, so now I've done it, and I am only 10!
It was fairly simple to use and a good mixture of activities.
All of the materials very user friendly. The assessments were appropriately challenging.
The information has given me more confidence to take action in a medical emergency.
A brilliant experience!
What is involved – what is my commitment to become Prepared to Save a Life?
The training is entirely free and takes approximately an hour. Hard to find time all in one go? Don't let that put you off. The training is broken down into five short 10 minute sections, covering: DR ABC; CPR; Bleeding; Choking and Stroke. You can do these bite-size activities at different times if you prefer, returning as often as you like. On completion of all the activities, you will be able to print a certificate of completion – and feel more confident to act if you come across an emergency situation.
What some of our learners have said:
"I feel reassured I would feel able to step in to help in an emergency situation”
"Very easy to use and gives you the confidence to know you can help save a life”
"Concentrates the mind and brings a bit more confidence to a possible situation. I would not be a bystander now”
"I have learned a lot which hopefully could help to save someone in the future”
