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 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/May 2019 (BSc) / January 2019 (MSc).
To be valid whilst you are out on your first placement this training must have been undertaken between 1st August – 14th December 2018 (last day of term 1) for BSc students and between 1st August-30th November 2018 for MSc students.
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.
