e-ILS (Immediate Life Support RCUK) 

4.5 hours in-centre


1 year


e-ILS is a flexible way of learning skills in Immediate Life Support, and blends e-learning with face-to-face workshops.

The objective of the course is to provide healthcare professionals and those who may need to act as the first responder in an emergency, with the knowledge and skills to manage a patient until more advanced help arrives

An e-ILS course provides skills including managing a deteriorating patient, identifying causes and treating a cardiac arrest, plus improving abilities as both a team member and leader.

Candidates are expected to have completed the e-learning modules and read the supplied manual before attending. The face-to-face session focusses on skill stations and cardiac arrest simulations.
