The St John Ambulance Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) course gives you the skills to perform CPR on a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally. You will have confidence in your knowledge and skills to perform CPR on an adult, a child and an infant, and be able to describe alternative methods for delivering rescue breaths and how to manage a victim of drowning.

 

Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities and a written test paper. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.
