What is a CPR refresher course?
The first aid landscape is constantly changing, with new devices and innovations changing the way we approach cardiac arrest and other emergencies. CPR qualifications gained in Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (HLTAID009) last for 12 months, with the statement of attainment delivering nationally accredited qualifications that are in demand with employers and industry experts.
A refresher course for CPR covers similar material to HLTAID009 and also introduces you to any new devices, techniques and procedures used in progressive cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
How long is a CPR refresher course in Perth?
The CPR refresher course is completed in only a couple of hours. Many employers and industries incorporate first aid and CPR training qualifications into their working skillset, with first aid training and refresher course costs often covered by the employer.
First aid training and refresher courses are the proactive method of making your workplace, establishment or home safer for everyone. Real Response was founded in Melbourne in 2014 with a dedication to transform poor first aid learning outcomes using advanced simulation-based training methods.
