Frequently Asked Questions
In principle – if you meet all the requirements for the LVR training, you can just undertake the LVR component. However, you should note that the currency of LVR and CPR type courses is 12 months. If you have a valid CPR competency from a few months ago, you may need to do your CPR again before your LVR next runs out.
The acronym DRSABCD means Danger, Response, Send, Airway, Breathing, CPR, Defibrillation. During our CPR training you will learn the details of each component and how to apply them to your working environment.
CPR Training is a pre-requisite for LVR Training and is an annual requirement
