Life Saving Skill – CPR
As part of Bank of Ireland’s ‘Give Together’ charity and community initiative, we’ve partnered with Irish Heart to offer CPR training for schools.
CPR 4 Schools
The programme is run by the Irish Heart Foundation, as an innovative programme designed for post-primary schools. It is a quick and easy programme that equips teachers with the skills to deliver the training to their students and colleagues, in just 40 minutes.
The CPR 4 Schools programme will train the next generation of lifesavers who will be able to respond in such emergencies.
How does it work?
Irish Heart’s expert CPR 4 School team deliver a two hour training course to teachers. After training, teachers leave with unique login details to an online resource with materials to help them teach CPR in the classroom. Irish Heart also provides schools with free training manikins worth €600 and online training videos.
Each participating student and teacher also receives an Irish Heart Foundation CPR Certificate with CPD points.
