Course Overview

BCLS (CPR + AED) Singapore (Instructor Course)

BCLS + AED instructor course is specially designed for learners who wish to embark on a journey of imparting their knowledge of first aid to others. You will learn important skills such as principles of learning and facilitation, and instructional methods that will bring value to your training. Basic Cardiac Life Support and AED is a nationally certified course and the guidelines are set by Singapore Resuscitation and First Aid Council (SRFAC).

Development Pathway:

BCLS + AED provider → BCLS + AED instructor → BCLS + AED chief instructor

Why is CPR and AED usage learned in conjunction?

When CPR is performed, its purpose is to mimic the action of the heart and continue pumping blood through the body — transporting oxygen to the brain, thereby keeping it alive.

On the other hand, the purpose of the AED is to send electric shocks through the body in an effort to jumpstart the heart, allowing it to continue pumping blood to the brain.

Therefore, in the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) where there is a sudden loss of heart function, breathing & consciousness, both CPR and AED are required to ensure blood movement when the heart has ceased pumping and to restart the heart, respectively.
