What’s the difference between a refresher first aid course and the full course?
Under legislation, First Aid is required to be updated 3-yearly.
We offer two options both leading to First Aid accreditation.
- First Aid Refresher is for those that have done First Aid before – 5-hour workshop for $180. This program is also suitable for students who have a strong healthcare background and underpinning knowledge such as Nurses, Doctors etc.
- First Aid full – For Students who have not done first aid training previously or who have not undertaken a refresher program for a long time, are enrolled into the full first aid program – 7-hour workshop with a cost of $195.
The Australian Resuscitation Council also recommends that individuals undertake an annual CPR Refresher. Whilst this is not mandatory, many organisations require their staff to do this. This program is 2-hours and is either delivered as a stand-alone course or students attend the first 2 hours of a First Aid Refresher as above. The cost is $88.
Organisations who require this for staff will have the following cycle:
- Year 1 First Aid full
- Year 2 CPR Refresher
- Year 3 CPR Refresher
- Year 4 First Aid Refresher
