This is a blended course with self-paced online learning (e-Learning) and face-to-face training. Before attending the face-to-face training, students will need to complete their e-Learning which can be done in one sitting or over several sessions. Depending on the student's learning ability, they should allow up to 5 hours for reading and e-Learning. Face-to-face training and assessment takes approximately 3 hours in a classroom environment.


As part of the CPR course, you are required to complete online pre-learning activities at least 24 hours prior to your class date. These activities are completed via our online Moodle, and students should allow up to 5 hours to complete the required reading and knowledge quiz. Students will need to provide a current email address on enrolment to receive their Yarrawonga Mulwala Community and Learning Centre Moodle login instructions.


In this course, you will learn the skills and knowledge to be able to provide basic life support, manage casualties, the incident, and other first aiders, until qualified emergency help arrives at the scene of the incident.

This course covers how to:

  • Recognise and assess an emergency situation
  • Ensure safety for yourself, bystanders and the casualty
