CPR Refresher Courses Brisbane

The Australian Resuscitation Council strongly advises that CPR training be retaken annually to make certain that individuals are up to date with the latest CPR guidelines and practices and so skills remain at the ready.

In addition, some job roles, particularly in healthcare and educational settings, mandate the yearly renewal of CPR and the retaking of General First Aid training every three years.

First Aid Pro’s new CPR Done Differently course features assessment on demand which means that it has never been simpler to renew your CPR qualification.
