Recognised Prior Learning 
Due to tha ARC recommended guidelines for 12 month refreshers & the course timeframe being between 3-4 hours it is considered unlikely that an RPL shall be conducted. However, we are more than happy to discuss options based on experience and previous skills. Please call to discuss further.

Credit Transfer
Credit Transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for units/qualifications that can be identified as equivalent in content. Please discuss this option upon enrolment if you feel your learning outcome can be matched with a current unit or qualification you may already hold. It is important to note that Credit Transferring this unit would mean the ARC guidelines are not met.

Participants whom have successfully completed CPR training, may be interested in extending their knowledge and undertaking the First Aid course, that is typically run on the same day.
