How often does CPR training need to be refreshed?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions we receive at our Gold Coast office. Many clients have been told different things about how often they should undertake CPR training courses.

The answer to this question can depend on your industry, however the Australian Resuscitation Council recommends that CPR training be completed at least annually. Safe Work Australia First Aid in the Workplace (Code of Practice) also states ‘Refresher training in CPR should be undertaken annually and first aid qualifications should be renewed every three years’.

The optimal interval for retraining has not been established, however it is now well accepted that to hold a current CPR certificate in a workplace you are required to undertake CPR training every 12 months.

CPR refresher training on the Gold Coast is a simple process. You can undertake courses at Helensvale or Mermaid Beach with classes running daily.

For further information please give us a call or visit our website to book a course.
