No prior knowledge is necessary however this is a regulated course and so, as such, there are minimum standards that must be met. One relates to the minimum training time whilst others relate to the course content and completion of assessments. The awarding of a certificate to successful attendees is dependent on showing competency and not merely attendance. Therefore, attendees must be capable of completing all of the practical assessments, including the completion of resuscitation for a minimum of two minutes. This, and other practical elements require the attendee to be able, for instance, to kneel on the floor whilst completing resuscitation or placing a casualty in the recovery position.
If you have any concerns about these requirements, please let us know before the course.
