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.
