Physical Requirements

If you suffer an allergy to latex products, please advise us. Practical activities involve training scenarios conducted at floor level and contact with other students/instructors. Please wear suitable clothing.

As an example, CPR is a rigorous physical activity requiring you to compress the chest of a manikin downwards about a third of the chest depth continuously at 100 to 120 times a minute for a continuous period of 2 minutes. This requires a level of endurance, strength, and fitness appropriate to this task. If you have current physical injuries, medical problems or limitations, please discuss this with your trainer. It is important that you don’t injure yourself or exacerbate an existing condition in training.

The Assessment Process

We use a range of assessment methods to gather evidence of your knowledge and applied skills for this unit. The assessment methods for this unit include pre course enhanced online learning content including multiple choice questions, and  you will complete the practical activities on the day of your course. On enrolment, you will be provided with access to International Paramedic College’s course online learning materials; it is expected that you have read and understood and completed the content prior to starting the assessments on the day of your practical course. Full information about the assessment requirements and course content is available here.

On enrolment, you will be provided with a login to our student portal to access online assessment tasks. We understand that this may not suit everybody, and so we can offer various modes of delivery onsite over extended time frames. Practical training may be provided face to face or could be provided online.

We estimate that the pre-course online learning component may take from 5 to 8 hours, depending on previous experience with first aid content.
