Covid-19 Protocols As Directed

COVID-19 protocols and regulatory compliances are strictly observed and included in the training methodology and outcomes.



This locally produced course is designed to teach the techniques of CPR for choking adults, children and infants, and the use of the AED to lay rescuers who are expected to respond to emergencies in the workplaces.  In addition to hands-on practice in the skills of CPR and the use of AED, this RCSA course also includes the use of barrier devices and pocket masks and how to activate the emergency services.   CPR skills are significantly useful to bridge the gap between sudden cardiac arrest and the arrival of advanced medical interventions.

Target Market

  • First-responders in the workplace, health and fitness staff and trainers, teachers, lifeguards, swimming teachers, carers for babies, the frail and aged, security personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, remote workers, youth, the unemployed, informal traders, NGO volunteer workers, entrepreneurs etc.

Training Methodology and Philosophy
