Levels A, C, and HCP last four, five, and six hours long respectively. To complete and pass a program, the student has to have complete attendance, adequate skill demonstration, and get at least 75 percent on the written exam.
Credible St Mark James Cross Certification
Certificate cards from St Mark James are awarded upon completion of the training course. Wall mount sizes of the certificate are also available. Certificates are only valid for three years and participants can attend re-certification courses prior to expiration of awards.

Did You Know?
Human bites are not a common injury but victims can get them from fights and similar events. They can be dangerous as an animal bite because of the different types of microorganisms in a human mouth and saliva. Getting your knuckles cut on teeth is also considered a human bite.
First aid for a human bite:
- Stem the bleeding with light pressure using a clean piece of cloth, gauze, or bandage.
- Wash the wound with soap and water.
- Clean with iodine (optional) and apply antibiotic cream.
- Place a clean bandage on the wound.
