HAVING PROBLEMS with completion of the online work ? The most common problem that we find students have from an IT point of view with the on-line learning packages is "browser" related. We recommend you use "chrome" as your browser and we highly recommend that you clear the cache before commencing. This requires you to go to the top right of your browser ( 3 little dots ) and select "more tools" and then "clear browsing data" selecting all 3 options ( Browsing history, cookies and cached images). If you have any further issues please contact us directly.

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. You will be required, as per the Training Package, to complete 2 mins of CPR on a CPR manikin.
