Accredited Certificates and Short Courses INTRODUCTION TO CPR AND DEFIBRILLATION A qualified first aider can’t be guaranteed to be available in every emergency so it’s a great idea for everyone to know how to do CPR and how to use a defibrillator. These sessions are designed to give you the information you need to be able to know what to do in an emergency if a trained first aider is not available. The first part of the session will cover CPR while the second part will introduce defibrillation.

Following changes to national training rules, assessment for online Food Safety Training now has two components: a series of online questions to assess the student’s knowledge and a assessed workplace practical skills assignment. You can do your certificate online and start any time and also have the convenience of finishing it in your own time. If you don’t have access to a computer, you can complete this part of the course in the Centre’s computer lab. The workplace assignment is completed on the job, in a real or simulated workplace environment, and observed by a suitably qualified 3rd party observer. The observer needs to hold a food safety qualification that is at an equal or higher level than the course you are taking. Your certificate will be emailed to you when you have completed all the modules required. Simply come into the centre and fill in the enrolment form and pay the fee. We will then email you a link to commence the course online. The cost will depend on the level of certificate and whether you need to use the Centre's kitchen as a simulated workplace with an assessor. Call us fore details.
