LSV Statement on CPR and First Aid Training Changes

The (health) training package containing CPR, First Aid, First Aid in an Education and Care Setting and Advanced First Aid have been reviewed by the responsible agencies and the new revisions became available on 15 Oct 2020. The changes are intended to:

  • Better reflect industry best practice and current regulation;
  • Ensure the scope and content are reflective of industry expectations;
  • Address the role of mental health support in the provision of First Aid.

Registered Training Providers including LSV have a period of 12 months to transition (from 15 Oct 2020) to the updated versions of the courses or cease delivery. It is planned that LSV will deliver the new courses from July 1 2021.

As per WorkSafe / Safe Work Australia guidelines a ‘current’ CPR certificate is defined as having been issued within the last 12 months, and a ‘current’ First Aid certificate is defined as having been issued within the last 3 years.
