Express course was great. It’s an ideal course for people who have previous first aid qualifications and just need a bit of a refresher. Elssy was a great instructor
Sarah Gummer​
Our trainer, Allan, was super engaging and made the experience comfortable & fun for everyone. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone of any age or skill level. I left the session feeling confident about my CPR abilities despite never having learnt about it before!

Inder is a great trainer for my first aid course. She gave lots of help during the course especially for me whose English is not the first language.

What You Need To Know

To keep our training costs down a large component of our courses are completed as theory at home prior to the class. And by not supplying refreshments on the day of training we are able to keep our prices low and offer student pricing for all.

It also means we can focus on the fun stuff on the day of the class, and incorporate more practical exercises and assessments rather than a theory-based class environment.

Our CPR classes start from $45 if you book online.

Our courses are nationally accredited and are the same courses delivered nationally by any other RTO (Registered Training Organisation) provider. All of our courses must follow the ARC guidelines if delivered in Australia to make them compliant.

You can be certified to provide CPR in just 30 minutes to 2.5 hours with our streamlined blend of self-paced online course theory and onsite practical assessment.

In order to achieve CPR certification, one must first demonstrate their knowledge of the technique and be able to showcase how it's done on a manikin placed face down in front of them. This includes correctly performing two minutes' worths of chest compressions as well as taking appropriate emergency response actions such as reporting any incidents that may occur during this process

The certificate will be valid for 12 months after the date it was issued, so it’s recommended to complete your refresher training every year.

 

Keeping your skills up-to-date is important for keeping yourself safe. The Australian government recommends that you renew your CPR certification every 12 months, and this needs to be done through an approved Registered Training Organisations (RTO) like CPR First Aid Training which has been granted RTO no.: 21903

No, a CPR certificate does not provide the same level of training as first aid. The difference between a first aid and CPR certificate is that one includes training in providing care for medical emergencies while the other focuses more on how to manage severe bleeds, poisonings or asthma attacks.

Like the full HLTAID009 course, a CPR refresher is focused on teaching students how to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The difference between both courses lies in their lack of experience with this subject matter before enrolling; however, once enrolled they must still meet all training requirements set out by law as well as demonstrate adequate knowledge at each milestone throughout their studies (assessment).

Our statement (certificate) will be emailed upon successful completion after 7pm the same day for morning classes, or next day for afternoon classes

Yes. Your first aid certificate will state that you're qualified to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) because it's part of the training for those who have obtained their certification.

If you're taking this course for work-related purposes, make sure to check with your employer as they may be willing or able to pay for it on behalf of yourself.
