Paediatric Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support

Accredited 1-day course!

This Paediatric Advanced Life Support Course is coordinated by highly qualified, experienced facilitators and utilises workstations to assist the integration of theory into practice.

The information presented in the Paediatric Advanced Life Support Course is consistent with both the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines.

During the course, the participants actually use the equipment, perform procedures and manage the arrest scenarios themselves.

Numbers are strictly limited and due to the popularity of our education programs we advise you to register early.  We have a limit of 6 participants per Facilitator for this course and courses tend to book out quickly.
