Some of our courses require students to complete cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the floor. Students must perform CPR (including strenuous physical compressions) while kneeling on the ground. A pillow can be used under your knees to perform these exercises, but they must be performed on the floor. If you can’t perform CPR on the ground you can still attend the course to learn first aid, but we won’t be able to issue you with a Statement of Attainment.
You must bring your confirmation letter and photo identification.
CPR and First Aid courses: You will be required to bring a fully charged smart device* (mobile phone or tablet). If you have technical issues with your device on the day, the Trainer will attempt to troubleshoot. Failing that, we will provide you with a paper assessment (this will be determined by the Trainer).
*Laptops are NOT an acceptable smart device
