Professional Development and Accreditation

Current CPR First Aid certification is often a requirement for employment or a condition for professional registration.

It is also recognised as a credit in continuing professional development. If you have any questions about first aid certification and your profession, please call our friendly team on 07 3437 7500

People Also Ask

First aid course assessment involves practical demonstration of CPR. This demonstration requires access to a manikin. Because of this requirement, it would be unlikely that an online first aid course is an accredited course.

Non-accredited courses are not recognised as official training and assessment and therefore cannot be used as certification for employment or study purposes.
