Cardiopulmonary resuscitation training

When renewing your registration with AHPRA each year, you will have to declare you have completed CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training within the previous three years, as part of your CPD requirements.

Where can I find an approved CPR course?

  • Your state division may offer specialised CPR courses for members. Please contact your state division to find out about their next scheduled CPR course.
  • Visit www.training.gov.au and click on ‘Courses & Training Providers’. Search courses for ‘Cardiopulmonary’ or use the specific code ‘HLTAID001’ and your location.

Note: online CPR courses are not approved by the OBA.

Please contact cpd@optometry.org.au or 1800 393 273 if you have questions about CPR requirements for optometrists.
