Your Assessment

In the case of CPR, it is important that we check what you know and can do. Our assessment process is simple. We will ask you some questions (written questions), watch you run through the CPR Algorithm on a mannequin (baby and adult) and complete an incident report . If assessments scare you don’t worry, you will have plenty of time to prepare and practice before you are assessed.
