Ligature Response and Basic Life Support

From £110.00

This highly practical Ligature Response and Basic Life Support Course is aimed at those who need to undertake “ligature rescue”/ “anti-ligature” / “ligature response” training, but don’t hold an in-date first aid certificate.

Suicide by strangulation, whether fully, partly or unsuspended, is the most common means both men and women take their own lives in the UK. Current figures indicate that over 5500 people took their own lives in 2021, with approximately 60% of those being by “hanging, strangulation and suffocation”.

This practical, hands-on course will enable you to act safely and decisively when responding to a ligature incident. You’ll also learn how to undertake Basic Life Support for adult and child casualties.


Not sure if this course is right for you? I offer three ligature training courses; just pick whichever is right for you!
