If your answer is not listed below, give us a call on 1300 303 655 or email

Is this a full first aid course?

This is HLTAID001 – Provide CPR.  It only covers the CPR component. It is commonly used by people as the annual refresher of the CPR component of their first aid course.   You can do this course on its own, however your employer may require a full first aid course such as HLTAID002 (Provide Basic Emergency Life Support ) or HLTAID003 (Provide first aid) which all include CPR plus additional first aid skills.

How long does the class go for?

The course is made up of two components, an online learning module, and an in-person training session.
The online module should take you about 1 hour to complete.
The in-person classroom session should take about 2 hours.

Will I have to lean on the floor to do CPR?

Yes. This is an assessable requirement.  This is a nationally accredited course, and part of the assessment set by the industry skills council requires you to perform CPR on a patient who is on the ground.  You will be required to demonstrate this competency to pass.

I have learning difficulties. Can I still do the course?

We will do our very best to accommodate you. Please give us a call on 1300 303655 or email to discuss your specific requirements, and we will let you know if we can help.

How often do you run this course?

We run our courses regularly.  See the calendar above for course dates.  The red dots on the calendar indicate when the course is running.

How long will it take to obtain my certificate?

Your certificate will be mailed within 7 days of completing the training. However, we can provide an official letter of completion at the end of your course, to satisfy employer or university requirements.  Please inform us prior to the course if you require a completion letter to be issued on the day of training.

I don't want to do CPR in front of other people. Do you offer 1-on-1 courses?

We can provide 1-on-1 lessons for the CPR refresher. For all other courses, we only provide group based training.
