Our trainers use a manikin for demonstration and delegate practice. An ECG machine is not necessary for successful completion of the course. However, if one is available, please ensure this is set up in the training room before the training is due to start. Our trainers will then be able to incorporate practical work using the ECG machine, to ensure delegates are familiar and competent in its use.
