Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) Training
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) Training is mandatory for all students entering the Occupational Therapy degree courses to have up to date CPR training.
Certificate of training
You will need to have a certificate that demonstrates you have completed practical cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training. It needs to be carried out in the last 12 months and cover all the allocated placement periods. You will therefore need to update this training annually.
You must provide evidence of CPR training or a CPR refresher course when you commence your study in September. This evidence must be provided before you undertake your first practice placement in March (BSc) / April 2016 (MSc).
To be valid whilst you are out on placement this training must have been undertaken between 1 May and the last day of Term 1.
It will be your responsibility to arrange this training as we do not provide any training sessions. If necessary you will have time available (independent study time) during Term 1 to arrange and complete the training if you are unable to do so before commencing the programme.
If you have attended training already you will need to attend a refresher course within the above date range and supply evidence of this.
