Extended competencies as needed by the CQC are airway management, reversal of sedation and cardiac life-threatening arrhythmias and the use of the AED defibrillator.While we are unable to do the whole course on TubulesLive, DentinalTubules Online CPD has the entire extended life support courses (equivalent of ILS and covering these competencies) available at https://www.dentinaltubules.com/playlists/extended-life-support
