CPR Health Training Packages

As part of the Board’s continuing professional development (CPD) requirements as set out in the Board’s CPD registration standard and CPD guidelines, podiatrists must complete training that includes cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), management of anaphylaxis and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) conducted by approved training organisation.

Podiatric surgeons must complete training in advanced life support conducted by approved training organisation.

The Board has defined an approved training organisation (as it relates to the Continuing professional development registration standard) as:

  1. a registered training organisation (RTO) as listed on the Training.gov.au website, or
  2. a hospital and/or health service that provides training that has the same course content and meets the same competencies of a training package delivered by an RTO.

The training must be current. The CPR component must be renewed annually and the other requirements (management of anaphylaxis; and the use of an AED) must be renewed at least every three years.

Training.gov.au is the official National Register of information on Training Packages, Qualifications, Courses, Units of Competency and Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).

The recommended health training packages that cover the requirements for CPR, management of anaphylaxis and use of an AED training for podiatrists are in the table below. The list is not exhaustive.
