This training namely the Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) session is designed for general public, public safety personnel, auto drivers and lifeguards. The course equips trainees to administer emergency help to a victim in case of a cardiac arrest. The entire session involves a multi-media demonstration using computerised mannequins and hands-on training. The programme further has a module on advanced life support systems for general practitioners and allied health care professionals. Participants are trained to recognise and deal with emergency situations.
In 2010-11 about 3200 people were given training on basic life support.
