Important COVID-19 update

The health and wellbeing of the community, Red Cross staff, trainers and students is the key priority for Australian Red Cross. We are strictly adhering to Victorian Government COVID-19 guidelines and have made changes to our training schedule in Victoria as a result.

As the level of the restrictions are location dependent, anyone residing in Victoria that has an existing booking or would like to book training, is asked to please contact Australian Red Cross so that we can advise accordingly: / 1800 733 276. There is no charge to reschedule bookings. 

For information on the current status and areas affected in Victoria, please refer to the Victoria Health and Human Services website.

First Aid and Mental Health classroom training is available for bookings. Enhanced infection control and hygiene measures are in place and physical distancing measures are strictly followed. All our trainers have received COVID-19 training. 

Changes to CPR and classroom exercises
To reduce contact, students will not be required to demonstrate first aid techniques on others. CPR training and assessment have been changed to avoid direct contact with performing the 2 breaths on the manikins.

If you have flu-like symptoms
Please do not attend classroom training if you are sick or experiencing any flu-like symptoms. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on the basis of health during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test
Please do not attend classroom training until you have your results and they are negative. Red Cross will waive transfer fees for any student who needs to reschedule on this basis.
