It couldn't be simpler - you just need your mobile phone or tablet and a cushion to practise on. Start the training now or save it for later and get it sent straight to your inbox, ready when you are.
What is CPR?
CPR is an emergency lifesaving procedure, performed when the heart stops beating. Each year over 30,000 people have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK, with less than one in ten surviving - giving CPR and using a defibrillator can more than double someone's chance of survival.
How to access the free online training
The training can be accessed on the British Heart Foundation's website and all you need is a cushion, your mobile phone and 15 minutes. That's it. Nothing more.
What you'll learn
- Learn how to recognise a cardiac arrest and what to do in an emergency situation
- Understand when you should call 999 and what to expect with a simulated practice call
- RevivR gives you feedback on your CPR technique and will help you perfect it while you practise
- How to use a defibrillator and where you can find your nearest one
If someone is experiencing cardiac arrest, the quick use of a defibrillator in an easy to reach place can also be the lifeline that keeps them with us.
The Circuit has a partner site, Defib Finder, where you can check the closest defibrillators to you and see if yours is already registered. However, this website should not be used during an emergency: when someone collapses and stops breathing normally, it is important to quickly call 999, begin CPR and use defibrillator if one is available.
