Why your workforce needs e-Lifesaver

Every person deserves to have the opportunity to learn skills in CPR and choking management, which will help them respond quickly in an emergency.

By training your workforce in CPR you’re equipping them with the skills to save a life. These are skills that could make all the difference if they witnessed someone have a cardiac arrest or start choking in the workplace, at home, or in public.

e-Lifesaver is a SCORM-compliant digital education tool that is easy to follow, and simple to use. Developed by clinical experts at Resuscitation Council UK, e-Lifesaver highlights RCUK’s guidance, guaranteeing your staff know best practice in CPR, AED use and choking management.

CPR skills are learnt with interactive films, which put users at the heart of the action in an emergency and teach the right choices to make in order to save a life.

e-Lifesaver meets the national standard for CPR and AED awareness training and staff who complete training will receive a printable certificate. It can be integrated to your Learning Management System (LMS).

Launched in Spring 2020, e-Lifesaver has already been used by numerous organisations, including NHS trusts, charities, commercial organisations and more.

About the films

Scenario 1 - Jake: Jake is out in public when he suddenly collapses and stops breathing. Will you stop to help him? Learn about how to respond in an emergency, perform CPR and use an AED in this scenario.

The Jake scenario meets the National Standard of CPR and AED awareness.

Scenario 2 - Rebecca: When you see Rebecca choking on her food, it’s up to you to give her a chance of survival. In this scenario, you’ll learn how to act if someone’s choking, and how to perform CPR.

Additional content: At the end of the films, learners can access our COVID-19 guidance to ensure they have up-to-date information about performing CPR during the pandemic.

How to purchase your e-Lifesaver licence

To incorporate e-Lifesaver into your organisation, all you need is a Learning Management System.

After your free trial, you can order as many films and licences as your workplace requires to fulfil your training needs. Prices differ depending on the number of films and licences purchased. 

We have special prices for NHS and public sector organisations to support your workforce learning needs.

Payment for e-Lifesaver is made in advance and payment can be made by credit or debit card, or by purchase order.

If you wish to purchase e-Lifesaver or want to increase the number of licences you have, please email: lifesaver@resus.org.uk.

We are developing e-Lifesaver for organisations that don’t have their own LMS platform and hope to launch this in 2021. If you would like us to update you when it’s ready, please register your interest.

To use e-Lifesaver, users will need to access the service on their PC or Mac. It is not currently available for mobile or tablet, but this may change in the future.

Your organisation will require an LMS in order to run e-Lifesaver. This will allow you to track employee progress and success rates.

The e-Lifesaver package is a small file size and requires minimal space to operate.


Installation of e-Lifesaver is a straightforward procedure but can depend on your LMS and network configuration. We hope to have you up and running in a few days.
