First Aid Certificates

To ensure your First Aid Certificate remains current you must undertake an annual CPR refresher. CPR refreshers are conducted on campus throughout the year. Dates and times are advertised through the Organisational Development Training Calendar in HRonline under the heading Health and Safety.

Providers of First Aid training are:

  • The Royal Life Saving Society Australia
  • Australian Red Cross
  • St John Ambulance Australia (NSW)

Expiry of First Aid Certificates

Certificates must be renewed (4) four weeks prior to expiry date. It is the responsibility of an FAO to contact Health and Safety to renew certificates.

Dates and times for Senior First Aid Recertification courses will be advertised in the First Aid Newsletter. If your First Aid Certificate is due for renewal close to the scheduled dates, email Diane Bunch diane.bunch@newcastle.edu.au - to reserve a place or advise her if you are unable to attend so that alternate arrangements can be made.

A copy of certificates and any renewals must be forwarded to the Health & Safety Team, Human Resource Services to enable processing of allowances.
