BLS is introduced to first time trainees, as the guidelines highlight the pathway taken by rescuers performing CPR and AED on a victim of cardiac arrest. AEDs are machines that detect heart rhythms and provide shock (manually or automatically) to the victim.

Private classes are also offered to groups or companies who wish to enrol a large group of people in a separate class. Companies usually prefer private classes for skill development or team building activities, usually done at a particular schedule.

“Life Over Limb”

Students who register and attend workplace approved training courses will learn effective life-saving techniques. A popular saying is “Life over Limb”, that teaches participants the following:

If a life-threatening injury aggravates another injury, or suspected injury, the rescuer should tend to the life-threatening injuries as a priority. In other words, the “life” (breathing and circulation) takes priority over any secondary injury or “limb”. If a person is not breathing with a suspected spinal injury. It may be necessary to move the victim in order to save his or her life. The “life” takes priority over the “limb”.
