There is some theory and practical assessment to ensure that the participant has gained the required knowledge and confidence in the skills covered in the unit.

Participants will also be required to demonstrate various practical skills including application of slings etc

In addition to the requirements for the first aid units, you will be required to complete various written, verbal and demonstration assessments during the 2 days as well as completion of a post course portfolio of evidence.

CPR refresher is recommended annually and Provide First Aid at least every 3 years. We suggest that the taping is refreshed at least annually unless it is being practised regularly.
