  • Members to be assessed on theoretical knowledge
  • A primary assessment (DRSABCD) on a live victim
  • A demonstration of the lateral position
  • Primary assessment (DRSABCD), CPR 1 person (adult or child AND infant) on an approved manikin – to include resuscitation methods using an approved mask
  • Team CPR scenario including primary assessment (DRSABCD), use of resuscitation mask with oxygen supplement and AED

Proficiency is updated annually. If a member has already completed a skills maintenance that required Resuscitation to be assessed i.e. Bronze Medallion, they are considered to be proficient in that section of this award. Members still need to be assessed as competent in sections 2-3 to be deemed proficient in ARTC/ART[AID].
