It usually requires participants to be able to kneel, twist, bend over simulated casualties, sit on the floor, perform simulated CPR etc. If you are concerned by any of this, feel that you or anyone that you may be booking on behalf of may not be able to perform some or any of these tasks or have any questions, please contact us before booking the course.

2. Please inform us of any medical conditions or special requirements that you feel may be relevant. This allows us to make reasonable adjustments where necessary.
