You may be a parent, health care worker, physio, receptionist or doctor and ABC-Resus Training has the credibility to challenge and equip you with the knowledge and skills relevant to your level.

Our Courses

ABC-Resus Training courses are certificated and approved. As an Advanced Resuscitation Council Instructor for Adults and an Advance Life Support Group Instructor for Paediatrics as well as a HSE First Aid at Work Instructor, you can have peace of mind in knowing that the training received is up to date and quality assured.

ABC-Resus Training was formed by Gabrielle Bignell in 2013. From her professional experience within the Accident and Emergency Department and teaching experience, it was recognised that too few of people understood the basics of first aid that could save a persons life. With this in mind ABC-Resus Training was developed to provide affordable high quality First Aid training to empower people to deal with first aid emergencies wherever they occur.

The ABC-Resus Team:

Our team has a wealth of experience in real-life emergency care and share a passion for training and development. We employ a variety of clinicians including frontline Paramedics, Nurses, and an expert in Clinical Simulation. This allows us to provide a learning experience that draws on reality. We use a combination of learning techniques to ensure you not only retain information but are then able to put this into practice. Theory and class room learning is kept to a minimum and group discussion, practical learning and scenarios are used regularly. We recognise that individual training needs differ and take pride in offering a learning style appropriate to your development needs. Our comprehensive approach leaves delegates empowered and confident to deal with first aid emergencies whenever or wherever they occur.
