General Practitioners (GPs) are required to complete a Basic CPR course as part of the RACGP QI&CPD Program.
GPs merely submit a copy of their CPR Statement of Attainment to the relevant State QI&CPD Unit for CPD point allocation: 5 Category 2 QI&CPD points.
Our CPR Course includes defib (AED) training and is consistent with the latest ARC (Australian Resuscitation Council) Guidelines.
CBD College Pty Ltd, RTO No. 91399, is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) and our CPR and first aid courses attract ACN CPD points as follows:
HLTAID001 - Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation course - (CPR) - “This course is endorsed by ACN according to the Continuing Professional Development Endorsed Course Standards. It has been allocated 2.5 CPD hours according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia – Continuing Professional Development Standard”
HLTAID003 - Provide first aid - This course is endorsed by ACN according to the Continuing Professional Development Endorsed Course Standards. It has been allocated 6 CPD hours according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia – Continuing Professional Development Standard
Pharmacists may claim 2 points per hour for the purpose of recording CPE points (for both practical courses, and the online workbook). Pharmacists need to keep track of their own points.
The certificate issued together with the online certificate can be used as evidence of the study undertaken.
The certificate is accepted nation-wide, which means pharmacists can claim the training, using the certificate as evidence.
