We allow ample time for students to practice and will not progress to a new topic until we and students are satisfied that the appropriate standard has been met. We believe that students learn through interaction and so we actively promote discussion and questions from students.
We use one manikin per student when teaching the CPR element of the course so that students have plenty of time to practice. Each student receives comprehensive course notes, a pocket mask, and some other proprietary documentation including a CPR flowchart and a treatment record sheet to supplement their accident report form.
