Completion of this unit does require the student to be able to get onto the floor to perform CPR – this is a licensing requirement of the unit.

Pre-course study

It is required that you watch the CPR and slings videos as well as read the first aid book available on our website to aid in your understanding of CPR and first aid.

There will be a short quiz at the beginning of the course on the information contained in the videos, this is to enable the trainer to better guide the content of the course for you.

Computer / IT skills include the ability to access emails and follow links within those emails, complete online forms and create / access online profiles.
