First Aid and CPR

To support your First Aid and CPR learning needs, we’ve teamed up with Australia Wide First Aid and St John Ambulance NSW to ensure you have access Nationally Recognised Training Courses, available across Australia.


Provide First Aid (HLTAID011 or HLTAID003) & Provide CPR (HLTAID009 or HLTAID001) are pre-requisites for our Immunisation Training (APPIMM806 – Manage the delivery and administration of injections and immunisations).


Australia Wide First and St John Ambulance NSW offers courses tailored to Healthcare Professionals. CPD Credits will vary with suppliers but you can claim 2, group 2 CPD Credits per hour of education as a non-accredited program. Once they’ve been issued with the relevant qualification, PSA Members can self-record these CPD credits and evidence, using PSA’s member-only CPD planning tool.
