Book your CPR Refresher Course now!

Optometry Victoria South Australia will be holding a series of CPR refresher courses for OV/SA members in the coming months. AHPRA requires that optometrists renew their CPR certificate every three years. This course provides the skills and knowledge required to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in line with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.

Please note:  We will be inviting attendees to complete the theoretical component of the course online.  This will be a self-guided program where you will be required to complete the assessment prior to attending the evening.  Upon registration, details will be sent to you on how to access this course.

On the evening of the CPR Training, all registered attendees will be provided with practical CPR demonstration to complete the CPR Refresher course.

Due to room size , CPR logistic constraints and in order to keep our training COVIDSafe, you will pick which time you would prefer when you register. You will need to be quick as the capacity is 12 for each session.  We will also send you reminder text messages as your session draws near.

Our COVIDSafe protocol means we’ll have  fresh air flow and our ventilator running. Masks and sanitiser will be available at the venue.

Before you register you will need to obtain a USI.

If you do not already have a USI, (check your member portal to see if we have your USI on file).  Please ensure you acquire your USI first, following the steps below and include it in the mandatory field upon registration.
