Start Training believes that effective first aid and CPR training should be designed using unique industry requirements, and rooted in strong practical skills that can be applied at a moment’s notice. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique that is used in situations where a person’s breathing or heartbeat stops. Our first aid courses arm individuals with the knowledge and hands-on training they need to perform CPR on an injured person until emergency care professionals arrive on the scene.

Comprehensive CPR Training Courses
Although you can get your first aid certification online, learning CPR requires on-site practice and instruction. When you enrol in a first aid course, you receive level one training that includes basic emergency support. Level 2 teaches you how to provide first aid including CPR. Level 3 certification provides students with a more comprehensive program that is tailor made for specific environments, such as work, that may need specialised skills. In order to receive a certification, individuals must demonstrate their competency by being able to perform two minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult mannequin placed on the floor.
Start Training offers industry leading Level 2 first aid and CPR training that can be used effectively across a number of work sites.
How Long Does a Certification Last?
Start Training recommends that you refresh your CPR training course every 12 months to ensure that your technique is optimal. First aid courses should be refreshed every 3 years to ensure you remain compliant and up to date with advances in first aid best practices.
