Answer the incremental multiple-choice questions throughout the course and when you have completed all the lessons, you will be directed to the final assessment.

Students are asked pre-test questions after each group of videos to confirm understanding of the major points within those videos.

After the online training section, students are asked to take a final test. They must score an 80% or better to pass. The student is able to take the test again if they are not successful on the first attempt, and each test is recorded and viewable through a teacher dashboard. The test is comprised of multiple choice, scenario-based questions.


Certificates and a student manual are available to download and print at the end of the course.

Additional information

If you are a school or community group, for example Guides or Scouts why not book a practical session where our own instructor will provide hands on assessment and provide the manikins to complement the training?

There will be a small charge for practical sessions based on the number of students. There is no additional travel expense for schools in Cambridgeshire and neighbouring counties.

Classroom practical courses on site are subject to our risk assessment. The Bridge First aid is proud to offer socially distanced first aid where space allows. We have over 36 new adult, child, and infant manikins so training is safe and uninterrupted. These CPR Manikins are brand new and the latest model for 2020 where the air expelled from the lungs is vented out the back of the head.

Each learner will have their own dedicated manikin for the duration of the practical training. These manikins have electronic wireless feedback on compression depth and speed and chest recoil parameters. This is both fun and helpful as students can adjust their own technique in real time.

Our instructors who visit schools are DBS checked, and well accustomed to working with a broad demographic as well as learners with special educational needs.
