Learn To Save A Life

Providers of Professional Resuscitation Training and Consultancy Services.


About us

LTSL was established in 2009 by a group of 5 specialist nurses, in response to an identified need for both basic and advanced life support training outside normal office hours.  We currently train an average of 200 people a year in Basic Life Support (BLS) skills and 150 people per year in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) skills. Our courses are fully accredited by both the Irish Heart Foundation and American Heart Association and we provide full professional indemnity insurance. We work closely with a core group of medical directors who are all critical care consultants or specialist registrars.

"Learn to Save a Life?   Well the words that come to mind when we think of the training they did with us would be professional, very thorough, flexible to the needs of the client and genuinely interested in what the club wanted from the training. The feedback from the participants was very positive.  Probably the simplest thing to say is that they next time we want to some work in this space we'll be using  them again.  We can’t recommend them highly enough! "Read more
