How long does a first aid certificate last in Perth?
Almost all introductory first aid accredited courses take only a day or two to complete. This is surprising, considering the array of life-saving skills learnt, but also goes to show just how easy first aid skills are to master.
For example, a CPR course takes only 3.5 hours to complete, yet delivers outcomes that include responding to an unconscious person, airway management, artificial respiration, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillator use and communicating in an emergency. The nationally accredited certificate is valid for one year before a short refresher course is required.
In addition, first aid certificate Perth training with Real Response will empower you with confidence in other areas of life. First aid training encourages personal growth and a healthy approach to living, the ability to offer real comfort to others, plus employment or promotion opportunities in the workplace.
How to get a first aid certificate in Perth?
Real Response has changed the dynamics of the Australian first aid training industry. As professional teachers and paramedics, Real Response founders weren’t satisfied with poor first aid training outcomes, with 26% of Australian’s undertaking CPR training but only 4% confident of performing the procedure correctly in a real emergency.
Real Response simulation-based training methods are the answer. Simulation-based training, formerly only used by police, the military and professional medical responders, has transformed the first aid training experience with deeper learning and greater knowledge and skills retention.
Simulation-based first aid training is hands-on, where you get up from the desk and into life-saving and life support action even while training. And once the course is complete you will be ready, willing and able to approach any emergency with confidence and capability.

Do nurses need a first aid certificate?
In Australia, exemptions for first aid certificates are available for registered nurses, medical doctors and professional paramedics. Nurses are required to hold a current registration certificate. If a nurse doesn’t hold a current registration certificate, a current Senior First Aid certificate is required.
Nursing is a big field in Australia; from mothers with babies, teachers with kids, play centre employees and carers in aged care facilities. In many cases, people working in nursing and caring occupations don’t have first aid qualifications, although first aid training is highly recommended by Real Response.

Every first aid certificate has an expiry date, and you will need to renew the qualification with a refresher course to remain certified.
