Welcome to this basic life support course for dentists. In this course, we will be covering life support skill, initial care and safety in dealing with an emergency, and some other conditions you may come across. This course is based on the requirements of the British Dental Association and the UK Resuscitation Council dental guidelines.

Your responsibilities in dealing with an emergency are a little different than standard first aid since you have a duty to respond in an emergency to ensure they get help if something goes wrong.

On this course we cannot cover all regional policies and procedures of all workplaces, so please check what rules you have to follow anywhere you work. You should keep up-to-date with the latest guidelines by the British Dental Association. We will keep you up-to-date where possible with new videos, downloads, and other information on the free weekly emails.

Throughout this course, you will watch a series of videos, followed by some knowledge review questions and then finally a completion test. You can start and stop the course as often as you wish and return to it exactly where you left off. You can also watch any of the videos again, at any time, during and after the course.

The course can be viewed on any device, so if you wish you can start watching it on your computer and finish it on your smartphone or tablet.

On each page of the course, there is text available to read about the subject covered, to further support the video. There is also additional help available if you initially answer any of the questions incorrectly.

Once you have passed the test your completion certificate, your Certified CPD statement and the evidence-based learning statement will all be available for you to print off.

There are many resources and links to support your training and these can also be accessed from the course home page. We are constantly updating our courses, so check back regularly to view any new material. We give you access to the course for 8 months from when you started it, even after you've passed your test.

We offer free company dashboards, so if you're responsible for staff training in your

workplace and you'd like more information on our company solutions, please contact us by email, phone or by using our online chat facility. This may be a course that's delivered online but we offer you complete support throughout your training.

Finally, with all our online courses you will receive an email every Monday morning, to keep your skills fresh and to see any new videos that we add to the course. These emails also include news from our blog and you can choose to receive them, or stop them, at any time.

We hope you enjoy your course and thank you for choosing ProTrainings.
