Why complete this CPR Course?
Section 21 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.) requires that employers provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the management and control of the employer.
Regulation 339 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (Vic.) and according to WorkSafe Victoria, the number of first aiders and training needs will vary between workplaces. As a general rule, persons designated as first aid officers will need to have undertaken training leading to a Senior First Aid certificate (Level 2 certificate).
Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guideline 10.1 states that “those trained in CPR should refresh their CPR skills at least annually”.
