Advanced Life Support

Accredited 2-day course!

Register for the Advanced Life Support Course and learn some vital patient care skills. This course is consistent with the guidelines produced by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), which is Australia's national representative on the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).

This is an accredited, two-day face-to-face course, coordinated by highly qualified, experienced facilitators. The course uses multiple workstations to assist the integration of theory into practice. During the course, the participants actually get to utilise the equipment, perform procedures and manage the arrest scenarios themselves.

Numbers are strictly limited and due to the popularity of our education programs we advise you to register early. We have a limit of 6 participants per Facilitator for this course and courses tend to book out very quickly.
