Lifesaving Training

Croi Lifesaving training in the west of Ireland heart charity

Croí has established the National Institute for Preventive Cardiology (NIPC) which delivers a range of certified courses in lifesaving skills, including resuscitation and dealing with life-threatening emergencies such as choking. For healthcare professionals, training of this nature is usually mandatory and the NIPC offers you an internationally recognised qualification. However, over two thirds of emergencies, such as cardiac arrest or choking, happen outside of hospitals and occur in people's homes, in community places and schools and in the vast majority of cases with a bystander present. Whether you are a parent, a school teacher or a member of the general public being equipped with the necessary skills can mean the difference between life and death. By taking the time to learn about resuscitation and life-saving skills, you could save someone's life.
