Basic Life Support Training, instituted in 2011 by Sarah Jeffries, stems from a story of personal loss and a subsequent passion to endow individuals with the crucial knowledge needed to save lives. Sarah suffered the heartbreaking loss of a dear friend to sudden cardiac arrest, a painful experience exacerbated by the lack of knowledge amongst those present to act appropriately.
This event fuelled Sarah’s resolve to become proficient in First Aid, but she found the existing training mediums to be uninspiring and wearisome, often marked by lengthy, dull PowerPoint presentations. Fueled by a newfound desire, she resolved to initiate change, culminating in the foundation of Basic Life Support Training.
Her vision was simple but impactful: to provide immersive, practical life-saving sessions to locals and businesses. Sarah was resolute in her decision to stray from the traditional, stale teaching techniques. She crafted a unique training style, merging practical learning with multimedia elements, all presented in her characteristic, relatable manner.
The methodology Sarah introduced was groundbreaking; it made critical information more digestible and engaging and fostered a deeper comprehension and retention of essential life-saving techniques among attendees. Under Sarah’s skilled leadership, Basic Life Support Training persistently advocates for equipping individuals with the knowledge and self-assurance needed to respond swiftly and efficiently in crisis situations.
At Basic Life Support Training, we operate under a unifying, comprehensive vision: to equip individuals and organisations with the essential knowledge and skills necessary to adequately respond to life-threatening situations, especially sudden cardiac arrests. Here are our fundamental objectives:
