ERC BLS Instructor and Provider Course

Basic life support (BLS) and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the first level of care for a person in cardiac arrest.

In this course participants learn how to perform basic life support and to use an automated external defibrillator in an interactive process that requires both knowledge and skills. Part or all this knowledge and some skills can be obtained by self-instruction and on-line learning.

AEDs are widely available throughout Europe. This course includes training in how to use an AED when one is available. If there is no AED available, start BLS and wait for professional help.

BLS is fundamental to all cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Competence in Basic Life Support is a prerequisite for enrolment for all advanced-level training provided by the European Resuscitation Council.
