Provide First Aid
Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
This program enables a person to provide First Aid and to coordinate a First Aid response to a casualty and/or until the arrival of medical assistance (if required).
The Safe Work Australia First Aid Model Code of Practice recommends that refresher training in CPR should be undertaken annually from the date of issue and First Aid qualifications should be renewed every three years from the date of issue to maintain currency.
Many workers in AOD and related fields need to undertake this competency as an update (every 12 months). This program provides participants with knowledge and skills to provide CPR to a person who is unconscious or not breathing.
The program adheres to the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in line with first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies. The competency applies to all persons who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of community and workplace settings.

Cancellations and Refunds Policy
Our courses are in high demand and there are non-refundable fees which apply to all course cancellations. These are:
$50 Administration Fee
You must advise us of your need to cancel your place in a program at least 5 business days before the commencement of your first session to be able to receive a refund (total fees paid minus the non-refundable fees detailed above). If you fail to inform us of the cancellation with less than 5 business days’ notice before the first session, you will forfeit all fees paid unless you can demonstrate documented evidence of your unforseen absence (eg. a medical certificate). Consider if you need to cancel your place or transfer to another session (see Transfers Policy below.)
Please note that your payment is a reservation only for the program dates you have booked. We expect that you will attend the dates advertised for each program. If you wish to transfer your booking to other dates as advertised, you must advise us of this more than 5 business days before the commencement of the session. Transfers will only be allowed where there are vacancies available in alternative programs and you provide us with sufficient notice to make arrangements for replacement participants in the program. With sufficient notice (more than 5 business days) we will accept your request without charge. Transfers requested with less than 5 business days’ notice, may result in you forfeiting your fees paid, unless you can provide documented evidence of your unforeseen absence requirement (eg. a medical certificate).
Participants may not switch a date of their sessions of their booked program without providing documented evidence of their unforeseen absence requirement (e.g. a medical certificate). We will only grant these types of transfers where there are vacancies in future sessions and these transfers do not disadvantage other participants. If you cannot attend any sessions and do not advise us in advance, you will forfeit all fees paid.
Odyssey is keen to ensure our participants can complete their courses in a safe way. Please be assured that all our facilitators and staff have up to date COVID vaccination status and our face to face sessions will be provided in spaces that enable the maintenance of social distancing and that air quality will be monitored throughout program sessions.

All facilities and equipment will be cleaned and sanitised before and after your program sessions.
