Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training / Automated External Defibrillator Training / Medical Emergency Training and First Aid Training for the North of England and Scotland.
Welcome to our webpage. Established 2017, at Northern Resus Training (NRT) we aim to deliver an exceptional learning experience in the comfort of your workplace, with your needs in mind.
Unlike many other training providers, Our instructors are NHS registered healthcare professionals with many years experience at looking after acutely unwell patients. They also possess educational credibility, and are accredited RCUK Adult and Paediatric Instructors. These prestigious titles, allow us to deliver training to NHS staff at all levels on a regular basis.
Our training is professional, relaxed, and customer focused. As well as our training teaching important practical skills, we also discuss the importance of non-technical skills during emergency situations such as communication and teamwork. We also act as advisors with regards to resuscitation equipment and work with various companies supplying lifesaving equipment such as Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
We believe that CPR is a fundamental skill that everyone should be taught. Not only is it the most important skill anyone could learn, but it promotes well-being and helps to reduce the volume of people who die from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
SCA does not only happen in hospitals, it can happen to ANYONE at ANYTIME. It often has little or no warning, and can also affect previously fit and healthy individuals.
The most effective treatment for SCA is CPR and Defibrillation . Without these lifesaving measures the likelihood of survival is dramatically reduced.
According to figures, only less than 1 in 10 people survive a SCA and survival rates are much higher in Scandinavia where CPR is taught at a young age as part of the national curriculum.
We are passionate about improving these figures through our expertly delivered training in the comfort of your workplace, to minimise disruption to your service.
"I contacted Northern Resus Training as I needed to carry out an update on basic life support training to continue carrying out my role as an operating department practitioner. They were extremely helpful and conducted my update at a convenient time and place. A very professional and helpful service which I will be recommending to my colleagues. V Carroll, ODP."
