Important Training Course Updates

First Aid and Mental Health classroom training is available for bookings. Enhanced infection control and hygiene measures are in place and physical distancing measures adhered to. All our trainers have received COVID-19 training. 

Changes to CPR and classroom exercises
To reduce contact, students will not be required to demonstrate first aid techniques on others. CPR training and assessment have been changed to avoid direct contact with performing the 2 breaths on the manikins.

If you have flu-like symptoms
Please do not attend classroom training if you are sick or experiencing any flu-like symptoms. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on the basis of health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test
Please do not attend classroom training until you have your results and they are negative. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on this basis.

The national regulator who oversees First Aid training is making some updates to First Aid courses in 2021. These changes are being made to ensure industry best practice, expectations and current regulations are met and that students are competent in skills and when to use the skills in first aid situations.
