Paediatric Immediate Life Support – RCUK Course

The Paediatric Immediate Life Support (PILS) course provides a variety of skills, from managing a deteriorating patient, identifying causes and treating cardiac arrest in infants and children

PILS is a one day* course that was developed by Resuscitation Council UK for healthcare professionals who may have to manage and treat Paediatric patients in an emergency. It consists of lectures, skill stations and cardiac arrest simulations.

The qualification is recognised across the UK and Europe, allowing healthcare professionals to save young lives in many parts of the world.

Please contact us to know more or to book your next course.

*Safe Steps UK also offers the e-PILS course, which consists of e-learning modules and attending a half a day face to face course. 
Courses can be done at the client location for group bookings – please contact for more information. 


You are eligible to attend the PILS course if you are a doctor, nurse, health visitor, school nurse, midwife, ODP, cardiac technician, resuscitation officer, medical student (final year), nursing student (final year), physiotherapist, dentist, dental nurse, ambulance technician/paramedic, healthcare assistant or nursing associate, occupational therapist, radiographer, fire service technician, police officer or cabin crew.
