Advanced Life Support Course 

Our course corresponds to ‘CORE Immediate – Adult & Child’ from the New Zealand Resuscitation Council, which is for rescuers who might be expected to manage the early stages of a cardiac arrest (CORE Immediate was previously known as NZRC Level 4 Resuscitation). 

Our Advanced Life Support Course satisfies the requirements of the New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA) Code of Practice for dental professionals, including for dental surgery and receptionists.

Most of our Advanced Life Support Courses are provided for dental professionals, and studies have shown that medical emergencies do occur in the dental practice. Dental practitioners and their staff need to have appropriate skills, training and equipment available to deal with potentially life-threatening conditions.

Up-to-date drugs and equipment, as listed in the NZDA Code of Practice, must be operational and readily available in all dental practices.


Who should attend?

All staff in the dental practice should have appropriate training, including dental surgery assistants, reception and other staff who may have optional assessment of practical and theoretical skills.


A team approach to management of medical emergencies should be developed. Protocols should be in place so that all staff members know their role in managing emergency situations. The dental team should regularly practice scenarios within the dental practice setting.
