A real life-saver
A local and successful training provider, Heartbeat Training Ltd, delivered emergency paediatric first aid training to teachers and support staff at Bickerstaffe CE School, a primary school in West Lancashire.
Staff learnt how to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), recognise unwell children with conditions such as asthma, how to manage a broken arm and many more important first aid skills. In addition, Heartbeat Training’s lead trainer, Alan Ralfs also provided an additional, free session on CPR open to all parents.
Alan has been delivering training to the junior children at Bickerstaffe School for several years and said: “We’ve run first aid training sessions for pupils at the school because we firmly believe every child should learn basic life-saving skills so they know what to do in a medical emergency and the sessions with the pupils have always proved extremely successful.”
Heartbeat Training has been providing high quality first aid and medical emergency training to GPs, NHS staff, dentists, schools and businesses across the North West for over 11 years.
First aid training provides life- saving skills, and Heartbeat Training is passionate about empowering teachers and support staff to be able to make a difference when it matters most. Their courses provide staff with the knowledge and confidence to manage common childhood illnesses and injuries ensuring children are safe while they learn, grow and develop.

They strive to maintain their high standards in all of their courses and always follow the latest, recommended guidelines.
