We grant certificates for genuine competency, not like tick and flick course available elsewhere. Beware!
The CPR component of this course has strong physical demands. Physical competency must be demonstrated & assessed for at least 2 minutes with both adult mannequin on the floor and infant mannequin on a hard surface every year to maintain the currency of certificate. No CPR currency = First Aid certificate, not current. Chat with Capt. Bouc on 0418 836 137 if this is of concern to you.
