During the exercises the scenarios simulated on manikins adjusted to performance of advanced life support (venal access, mechanical ventilation, intubation, possibility of arrhythmias generation, defibrillation performance) are used.


At the end of the course a theoretical credit - test of choice - is carried out. The practical credit involves a test of basic life support, airways supply and exam scenarios which enable the candidates to present their abilities.
