Clinical Professional Development Workshop

Our Clinical Professional Development (PD) Workshop is a 2-day course that aims to provide all annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements for clinicians. It incorporates a number of courses including Advanced Life Support (ALS), Infection Control, HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and HLTWHS005 – Conduct manual tasks safely.

Delivery options are also available should participants only require certain courses. For example, ALS training can be substituted for CHCCCS019 – Recognise and respond to crisis situations.
