Hi again and really sorry to see your anxiety is plaguing you again!

Is this revalidation of your previous First Aid qualification? (Was looking at your prev posts). Are you doing recertification with same trainers/organisation?. Don't be afraid to tell them you anticipate difficulties have concerns about some aspects and need time and patience.

Have you spoken to your manager or anyone about your anxiety, especially around assessment of the practical aspects? Also please remember there is no shame in failing. Sometimes we learn more by getting things wrong and having to repeat them.
