Requalification Courses

Are you due to update your skills?

Royal Life Saving WA recommends that first aid and lifesaving qualifications are updated on a regular basis. The industry standard for First Aid practitioners to maintain current competency is to be re-certified every 12 months for lifesaving CPR skills (in line with Australian Resuscitation Council Guildelines), and every 3 years for First Aid. Those with Pool Lifeguard and Bronze Medallion qualifications are required to update every 12 months.

How do I requalify?

Royal Life Saving Society WA provides a range of requalification courses. Please select the course you require from the list below:

Why you should update now!

It is vital to ensure you are informed of current first aid or lifesaving guidelines. Skills and knowledge change over time and it's important to ensure you are up to date so you can provide first aid or perform a rescue in an emergency situation. Research shows a person's skills in CPR decrease by 50% after just two months if they haven't practised the skill.

What if my qualifications have expired?

If you have not completed your update within the time frame listed above you may be required to a complete the full course. If you are only recently out of date by a month or so, you can still attend one of the requalification courses listed above. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions.

"I just completed the 'Provide first aid online HLTAID003' course. The trainer Tracey was excellent!! I have done many first aid courses over my years and this is by far the best!!!" 


"Went to a 2 day senior first aid course. Loved it! Great instructor and had a lovely class. Good balance of prac and theory. Leanne made sure we understood everything and was a fabulous teacher. Coming back for my refresher courses in the next couple years. Highly recommend"
