Health Precautions

RescueCPR is committed to safeguarding the health and safety of learners in any course. For most people the physical activity involved in a First Aid/CPR course should not pose a health threat. However, there are a small number of people who may find the physical activities in the course strenuous. We recommend you consult with your physician, before you participate, if you have any of the following:

  • A history of a heart attack or other heart conditions
  • Respiratory problems (e.g. asthma)
  • Pregnancy
  • Bone or joint injuries

The course involves activities such as:

  • Kneeling and compressing on mannequins
  • Lying on the ground
  • Working with partners for choking hazards, bandaging and splinting

If you do not participate 100% you cannot successfully complete the course and receive certification. However, you are still welcome to attend and observe.
