Important Training Course Updates

First Aid and Mental Health classroom training is available for bookings in every state except parts of ACT until Monday 8 November. Enhanced infection control and hygiene measures are in place and physical distancing measures adhered to. All our trainers have received COVID-19 training.

Anyone residing in affected parts of ACT that have an existing booking or would like to book training, is asked to please contact Australian Red Cross so that we can advise accordingly: or 1800 733 276. There is no charge to reschedule bookings.

Changes to CPR and classroom exercises

To reduce contact, students will not be required to demonstrate first aid techniques on others. CPR training and assessment have been changed to avoid direct contact with performing the 2 rescue breaths on the manikins.

If you have flu-like symptoms or are identified as a COVID-19 close contact

Please do not attend classroom training if you are sick, experiencing any flu-like symptoms or have been deemed a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on the basis of health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test

Please do not attend classroom training until you have your results and they are negative. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on this basis.
