* The fee structure payable to our specialist trainers depends on the number of participants on a course. If we can sell all available tickets for the course the fee payable will be £82 per region participant. However, if all tickets are not sold then the price charged per head will increase depending on numbers. By booking this event now and paying £82 ('the deposit') you agree that in the event of the price increasing due to low ticket sales you will pay the balance between the new price and the deposit already paid. The maximum price that will be charged is £144.50.

Please consider where you will be using your qualification and for what level as you may be able to claim some or all of the cost from your county or unit. We also offer a region Qualifications Bursary - you can find more details and the application form on the below.

You will be expected to be capable of kneeling, performing CPR on manikins and lifting and rolling simulated casualties. Suitable clothing would be a tracksuit and trainers or other loose clothing and flat shoes. A significant amount of time will be spent outdoors regardless of the weather, so please bring suitable warm and waterproof clothing.
