    My problem is that my phone tells me when I receive an email.... So, it makes no sense to keep checking, however, I keep checking! Does anyone know about the CPR requirement?

I have CPR-C, but it has expired recently, so I want to make sure I update the correct certification. Thanks

    I'm not sure about community centre but I know St Johns Ambulance offers it they have locations in New West, Surrey, and some other locations too!

    I have CPR-C too but the shortlist letter says that we need CPR-HCP (Health Care Provider), so it looks like I'll be re-doing it... I went to Select First Aid in Surrey.

    You actually dont need to re-do it, I just realized. Just have to do the HCP recertification which is cheaper.

    I should mention I'm a first aid instructor. I was thinking about asking my employer if they would let me run a CPR-HCP exclusively for the people in the program (maybe for a little cheaper or whatnot). This would probably be conditional on getting a seat mind you, as otherwise uni can be pretty time-consuming for me. I'll get back to everyone if people are interested.
