Less than one day is all it takes, thanks to our streamlined blend of self-paced online First Aid course assessment and face-to-face training.

CPR certification requires the student to correctly demonstrate CPR for at least 2 minutes on a manikin placed on the floor.

Students would also need to demonstrate their knowledge of DRSABCD and incident reporting to be able to achieve the certification.

CPR refresher training is completed every 12 months from the date of issue listed on your certificate.

CPR certification does not expire. It is of course vitally important to keep your skills fresh. Safe Work Australia recommends renewing CPR certification every 12 months. This needs to be done through a Registered Training Organisation. Australia Wide First Aid is RTO No. 31961.

A CPR refresher course has the same course criteria, training and assessment as the full HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation course. The only difference is the student has had experience in completing the course.

The CPR course assessment requires practical demonstration of CPR on adult and infant manikins.

Access to manikins means that is not likely an online CPR course is an accredited course.

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

Yes, CPR is part of the first aid course. Therefore your first aid certificate would show that your training includes achieving CPR as a unit of competency.

No. CPR certificates provide training in CPR, operating an AED, and providing verbal reports of incidents. A first aid certificate includes CPR training but also includes bandaging techniques and management of severe bleeds, poisoning, diabetes, anaphylaxis, asthma, seizures, strokes, and more.

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

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