Basic life support for therapists


In addition to the Basic Life Support qualification programme, this course has been specifically designed by Alpha Complex Training for therapists working on their own within their treatment room or the client’s home.

9.30am – 4.00pm


  • Would you be confident in delivering  CPR and managing a patient in a cardiac arrest within your treatment room?
  • Would you be confident in using a defibrillator?
  • Do you understand exactly what immediate CPR does?
  • Would you recognise a patient who is having a heart attack or stroke and what might be the signs they are about to go into cardiac arrest?

Not only are these skills vital to know at work but at home and you never know when you might be out somewhere and someone needs help when everyone stands around and watches.

  • The first part of the day covers Basic Life Support, AED, Choking, recovery position and anaphylaxis and provides the Level 2 regulated qualification in Basic Life Support.
  • The remainder of the time will be spent covering industry-specific situations that you may come across as a therapist.
  • The VTQ is a Vocational Technical Qualification and it is transferable and recognised.
  • You will have access to online content and course materials on the Protrainings website for a year.
