Kildare Education Centre - Ionad Oideachas Cill Dara

17KEC500 Irish Heart Foundation CPR 4 Schools (Post Primary)

Date:  Thurs 12th October 2017 (5pm-7pm)

The programme will consist of a combination of:

  • Teacher training
  • Lesson plans
  • Learning materials
  • Equipment packs
  • Online resources

 Schools will be provided with their own manikins from the Irish Heart Foundation to afford students hands on practice and teachers will undertake a short facilitation programme through local Education Centres so they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to train students.  Participating schools must send 2 teachers to the workshop.


  • To empower all post primary students to be competent in recognising cardiac emergencies and performing CPR.
  • To train a generation of life savers who will respond in the event of any cardiac emergency and not be afraid to do so. 

Expected benefits:

  • Young people will have the knowledge to recognise cardiac medical emergencies and will have the skills and confidence to perform CPR.
  • An increase in survival from sudden cardiac arrest in our communities. 

CPR training programme delivery:  

  • Students will follow along with a DVD. The programme is very hands on and follows the practice while watching format. Teachers will ensure that students follow the DVD and perform skills as demonstrated in the videos.
  • The course to be delivered to students fits perfectly into a normal class period.
