Basic Life Support
Dental Arch Nurse Training Centre provides a number of high-quality training courses for aspiring dental nurses, dental therapists and dental hygienists in Winchester.
Our dental nursing courses cover all aspects of patient care and dental care, from dental procedures, GDC (General Dental Council) guidelines, dental surgery, infection control and everything in between, on your journey to becoming a fully qualified dental nurse.
Our Basic Life Support training is carried out by experienced professionals in the field.
The course costs £45 and is carried out on the last Saturday of each month at Bradbury House in Durngate, Winchester. It is a three-hour hands-on course for medically related professionals to enhance and advance in their clinical skills within their work environment. There will be formative assessments at the end of the course.
The Resuscitation lead for the course is Dr Raj, a Consultant of emergency medicine in Winchester and Basingstoke and the Director of Resuscitation Council.
