Objective: This study evaluated self-trained basic life support (BLS) skills acquired from an e-learning platform to design a complementary in-class training approach. Design: In total, 41 students (15-17 years, 29 men) participated in a pilot study on self-training in BLS. After 6 weeks, a compression-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) test assessed the skills acquired. Setting: A practice-based research setting. All data were collected in Flemish secondary schools in the context of the regular school curriculum. Methods: All tests were video-recorded. Data on motor skills were additionally collected on a Resusci Anne mannequin with Skillreporting software®. Quantitative data were analysed by analysis of variance (ANOVA). The qualitative aspects of basic life-saving actions were evaluated using European Resuscitation Council (ERC) guidelines. Results: Alerting emergency services, checking for consciousness and placing electrodes can be learned autonomously and be taught by means of pre-instruction. Hands-on training is necessary for compression skills and freeing the airway. Conclusion: Self-training in BLS offers insight into a flipped classroom CPR training strategy. Hands-on training should focus on motor skills, including head tilt and compression depth.
