CPR Training

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) Training – Occupational Therapy students only

It is mandatory for all students entering the Occupational Therapy programmes 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 at Brunel in September. This evidence must be provided before you undertake your first practice placement in March/May 2020 (BSc)/January 2020 (MSc). 

For the CPR requirement to be valid whilst you are out on your first placement this training must have been undertaken between 1st August – 13th December 2019 (last day of term 1) for BSc students and between 1st August-29th November 2019 for MSc students.

It will be your responsibility to arrange this training as the University DOES NOT provide any training sessions.

If you have already attended CPR training before 1st August 2019 you will need to attend a refresher course within the above date range and supply evidence of this.  CPR training must be renewed annually.
