Essential info:

Please wear suitable clothes; loose-fitting trousers, leggings, or jeans. We advise against wearing a skirt or anything short that may leave you feeling uncomfortable during practical assessments.

Fit for Training: As work-based training, you will be assessed in all areas of content to meet the certification requirements. The CPR/AED assessment requires learners to kneel on the floor next to the casualty. Please ensure that you can physically fulfil these practical requirements.

Make sure to bring photo ID - our trainer will request sight of this for certification purposes.

Lunch: We suggest that all learners arrive with lunch and refreshments for the day as we cannot guarantee there will be facilities to purchase refreshments at the venue.

Parking: Available at most venues outside of Central London. It is the learner's responsibility to check any parking restrictions at the venue prior to leaving their car.
