The first 10 minutes is crucial and this is on average how long emergency services will take to get to you. Kidsaver CPR & First Aid courses are designed to EMPOWER you with the confidence, knowledge and skills to PREVENT & RESPOND to your sick or injured baby or child until help arrives and as a result you could SAVE a little life.
Kidsaver COVID-19 Protocols
The safety and well-being of everyone attending Kidsaver classes is always our priority. We are actively monitoring the coronavirus situation and taking steps to help keep the community safe by adhering to the advice, policies and restrictions set by the state/federal governments and NSW Health. The following are some of the safety measures we have implemented to ensure our participants are safe and reassured during our classes.
All participants will be briefed on infection control as part of the session, including:
- Hand hygiene
- Cough etiquette
- Social distancing
Social distancing requirements will be adhered to as per the health advice throughout the class. All participants will use hand sanitiser before entering the room and have access to sanitiser throughout the class.
All our manikins and equipment are disinfected after each class.
Each participant (or couple) will have their own manikin for the duration of the class to practice skills on. There will be no swapping of manikins during the class. Also the practice of giving rescue breaths is not required by participants during CPR practice. Each participant will be screened through health questions via email before the class.
Refunds or class transfers will be offered as per our cancellation policy should you need to cancel due to being unwell.
We are the ONLY CPR and First Aid Provider in Australia where ALL trainers are Paediatric Registered Nurses with a minimum of 12 years industry experience & Masters qualifications in nursing education.<
Our courses are developed according to the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines as well as current best practice set by peak professional bodies.

On completion of a Kidsaver course, you will receive a certificate of attendance. Kidsaver courses are delivered in a format to ensure maximum flexibility with content, minimum course duration and cost. We have found most parents do not have the full day required to complete an accredited TAFE style first aid course (such as is needed for employment purposes) in addition to the pre course work and Government mandated assessment. If you require a Nationally Accredited Qualification for employment purposes, please speak to us directly.
Yes our classes do include hands on instruction in the use of a defibrillator (AED).
Remember! Any attempt at CPR is better than no attempt at all!
