Learn to Save a life – Free Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training

UK Coaching have released a digital learning toolkit that will enable you to act fast in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.

UK Coaching, in partnership with Sport England, have launched a free sudden cardiac arrest toolkit to enable you to act fast and save potentially save a life, which we wanted to share with you.

With restrictions easing, many of you will be returning to face-to-face delivery of services locally, including physical activities and sport. Health and safety of participants will be as important as ever, with a focus on Covid-19 protocols, but knowledge, awareness and training for sudden cardiac arrests is just as important – especially as many older people will have been limited to the amount regular physical activity and exertion over the last year.

This digital toolkit includes an interactive e-learning course, in collaboration with Resuscitation Council UK, St John Ambulance and Joe Humphries Memorial Trust. The toolkit is free and will help you gain the knowledge and confidence to respond quickly and appropriately in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.

UK Coaching are encouraging anyone involved in sports and physical activity, including coaches, instructors, club organisers, referees, volunteers, participants, and spectators to access this life-saving learning. Whether you are new to basic life support training, or would like to refresh your learning, this course is an excellent opportunity to do this.
