QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis (RQF)

Did you know that the number of hospital admissions for anaphylaxis in the UK has increased more than sevenfold in the last 10 years? 


Anaphlaxis is a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction, which requires immediate medical attention. With the number of sufferers increasing each year, it is extremely important to know what to do when faced with this acute emergency condition.


The QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis (RQF) qualification has been designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work, at home or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic life support and manage anaphylaxis when dealing with an emergency. Successful canddates will be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, and will be equipped with the vital skills needed to administer safe, prompt and effective treatment.

This community first aid course is organised and run for groups. Sorry, we do not provide open courses for this qualification.
