Our main priority is ensuring our student’s feel safe while they train. To do this we have ensured the following:
Each student has their own first aid training equipment which has been sanitised prior to use.
Each student will have their own designated space, adhering to social distancing measures.
CPR rescue breaths will be simulated to ensure no contact takes place.
Hand sanitiser and gloves available at all times.
Participants must have the physical capacity to perform the practical demonstrations, such as 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on the floor.
Individuals undertaking this course will be expected to complete both written and practical assessment tasks.
