CPR Course


Man practices first aid in a Senior First Aid Course

This CPR Course is very popular. Cardiac arrest is a medical emergency that can lead to death. With urgent medical care to restart the heart, survival is possible. Topics cover emergency situations likely to require CPR. In this CPR course, you will learn these skills, in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines, including using an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to rotate first aiders with minimal interruptions to compressions, and what to do if the casualty regurgitates or vomits.

The course also covers conveying accurate incident details when handing the casualty over to emergency services, how to review an incident, to recognise any psychological impacts on self and other rescuers, to seek help if required and for improvement of own personal skills and response times.
