There is a missing option on your first question. I have to have a first aid certificate to hold my professional qualifications. At the moment I have Rescue and Emergency Care 2 but I tend to vary which one I do depending on what I did last. I don't believe there are absolute opinons in first aid so I like to get a mix.

I renew my certificate every 2 years but so a Basic Life Support refresher every year. So not "every week" but hopefully not too "rusty"

I have no idea where the nearest AED is to here, athough there is a police station 5 doors down. In Llanberis I would have jsut phone one of the mountain rescue team since most of them carried them in their cars.

I tend to deliberately exaggerate my poll options, to avoid the situation of "Do you slightly agree, agree, or strongly agree?" In this case, I don't practice every week, although I'd say that I do it at least once a month. Putting it another way, if I asked you to do CPR on an annie right now, would you immediately know what to do, or would you have to think about it for a minute, trying to remember the ratio?
