The SPHERe™ course provides the pre-hospital medical professional with advanced training in pre-hospital resuscitation to enable them to deliver elite, high-quality care in the critical emergency of cardiac arrest.

The course focuses on the provision of the most advanced standards of resuscitation for both medical and traumatic cardiac arrest in the pre-hospital setting. Training is ideal for those working regularly in the pre-hospital environment.
