CPR 4 Schools, Creating Life-Savers for Life

Cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any age. Does your school know what to do? Your students lives might depend on it.

CPR 4 Schools for secondary schools provides teachers with an online portal of training videos, step by step lesson plans to help you turn your students into confident and ready-to-act lifesavers.

By following these, you could help save the life of someone in your own school, home or community someday for many years to come.

Our practice while watching increases student’s confidence to perform CPR, in just 40 minutes. CPR 4 Schools allows schools the freedom to incorporate training to their own school timetable, providing the opportunity to train all students.

Benefits to school:

Our online video programme provides students with basic life-saving support skills in just 40 minutes.

Each school will receive a lifesaving training pack which includes a set of manikins for students to practice on.

Last year we trained over 11,000 students across Ireland in CPR.
