Students must also bring a copy of the results of a PPD (TB) test to the first day of class. If you have previously taken a TB test, the results must be current within one calendar year of the scheduled clinical dates for this course.

Students are required to bring a watch with a second hand to class for use during the course and during the certification test at the end of the course.
