To be assessed as competent in this course you must be physically capable of performing CPR on the floor as well as demonstrating the Recovery Position. If you have an injury that limits your ability to adequately demonstrate CPR or the recovery position you may attend the course and be issued a non-accredited Statement of Attendance.
