2. Videos

  • You will have been sent a DVD with the training videos in your CPR kit, which you can also access via our CPR training videos page.
  • Below are motivational videos that you could use on the day, to demonstrate why CPR is an important skill to have:

3. Key quotes

Below are key quotes that you can use to talk about your CPR training. Add these to posters and leaflets to get your colleagues thinking:

  • Learn CPR and save a life. Teach CPR and save thousands.
  • Every year in the UK over 30,000 cardiac arrests occur out of hospital. That's 30,000 opportunities to help save a life.
  • You are part of our Nation of Life savers, by learning CPR you will be arming yourself with the skills that could help save lives in your society.
  • Currently in the UK just one in ten people survive however in countries like Norway, where CPR is more widely taught, almost four in ten people survive.
