This Cardiopulmonary (CPR) course provides the skills and knowledge required to perform CPR in line with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.

This CPR course  is delivered in the first 2.5 hours of the First Aid training or can be delivered as a standalone face to face class. Please refer to WRCC course timetable for session times.

Soon we have some updates coming for our First Aid Courses. This is because the national regulator for Australia’s training providers has made a few changes to the first aid units. These updates have been made to reflect industry best practices. The First Aid courses offered by WRCC are still fully recognised and industry-accepted. 

​This course has been superseded, however you can still enrol in the course as it still addresses the required qualification and industry standards and is still valid until 15/10/2021.


Course Delivery
This course is delivered with mixed mode delivery including multiple choice questions, scenarios and simulated activities.

Licensing and Regulations
Specific licensing/regulatory requirements relating to this competency, including requirements for refresher should be obtained from the relevant national, state/territory Work Health and Safety Regulatory Authorities
