CPR Course

First Aid course

  • CPR HLTAID001

    This three-hour (3) hour Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Refresher training program is designed for dental practice staff who wish to renew their CPR skills.
    Many organisations including Dental Practices adhere to the Australian Resuscitation Council’s recommendation that CPR skills be refreshed at least annually (see www.resus.org.au guideline 10.1 CPR recertification).

    The Digital Orthodontic College offers a Nationally Recognised CPR training program that is completed in our training rooms or your practice. This training and qualification meets the requirements of Safe Work NSW, the Australian Resuscitation Council and the Nationally Recognised Unit of Competency HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    It is expected that participants in this course will have previously obtained a First Aid qualification that contained a CPR component, and as such, this course is a refresher for those CPR skills. It is a requirement that those seeking to participate in this refresher training will need to demonstrate their pre-existing knowledge and skills by supplying a copy of their previous First Aid qualification.

    Participants who cannot demonstrate their prior knowledge will not be accepted into this course.
    Participants who have not completed a First Aid qualification containing CPR will need to enrol in a different version of this course.

    Training and Assessment:

    Skills learnt include:

    • Responding to an unconscious casualty
    • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
    • Communicating the details of the incident
     

    The course consists of one hour of online theory review and a two hour “hands on” training and assessment session in our training rooms or in your practice.  Participants are expected to complete the online theory review prior to attendance at the face-to-face class.

    Training involves the participant kneeling on the floor, performing CPR in a manikin, and as such participants should dress in comfortable suitable clothing.

    Maximum class size is 12 participants.

    Assessment will include practical demonstration based on real-life scenarios and a theory test.

What People Are Saying

  • Having always steered away from clear aligners and only stuck with fixed braces, I’ve finally decided to give aligners a go this year. BOSS is extremely practical, informative and backed up by heaps of research. Dr. V is a great mentor, she’s always helpful and truthful. The team at BOSS and CCC smiles are just amazing, always there to help you whenever you need, even if it was a question that’s been repetitively asked many many times. I would highly recommend BOSS to anyone who wishes to start their journey in digital orthodontics. With Dr. V and her team behind me, my confidence level is soooo much higher and I feel like I am delivering my treatment to a higher standard and overall making me a better clinician. Thank you Dr. V!!

    Dr Claire Chiu, Dentist QLD
  • I joined BOSS in 2018 for the full year, and the wealth of knowledge that Vandana shares is immeasurable! This course is perfect for absolute beginners and also those with more experience, and Vandana caters it perfectly for the whole group. All her information is evidence based and very relatable for general dentists, giving you information that those “generic” 1-3 day clear aligner courses cannot give you. BOSS is a very comprehensive course. I highly recommend it, I plan to join BOSS again!

    Dr Michelle Sujenie, Dentist VIC
  • Since I have joined the postgraduate diploma in orthodontics I have noticed all the applied practical learning/knowledge on my patients and I am only half way through the year. Dr Vandana is a genuine educator. She goes way beyond to simplify every lecture and I really like her evidence based information and that is available for us 24/7. Her webinars helped a lot for busy dentists and loved the feedback we get in the one on one sessions with our cases. It make us think every step of the way. But the best thing I like is to see she is giving back to the community and her association with Smile Train in helping children with cleft palate is just beyond words. Thank you so much for being nice and approachable.

    Dr Claudia Braybon, Dentist
  • I just attended the 2018 Boss Course 1 in Melbourne. It was a comprehensive introduction into orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. I have walked away feeling confident in my knowledge and abilities. I recommend this course to beginners and those with more experience. The group was small and the course felt tailored to our individual levels of experience. Dr Katyal was so kind and approachable and generously shared her knowledge. The course was heavily scientifically based and Dr Katyal frequently referred to the literature and gave recommended pre-readings to enhance our knowledge and make the most of the session.

    Dr Rachael McDonald, Dentist, Melbourne
  • Dr Katyal shares so much of her own protocol and is extremely generous not only with her time but with the well thought out information she provides along with the course such as inventory lists, marketing material and case presentation templates. She tailors her advice to your own experience and helps with appropriate case selection, points out possible pitfalls and helps you understand how to overcome them. The course is also up-to-date using the latest technologies in orthodontics and is heavily evidence-based.

    I would recommend it to anyone wanting to start doing some orthodontic treatment or looking for a more comprehensive course to assist in some ortho they are already doing.

    Dr Becky Dudman, Melbourne
  • This course has taken my knowledge of clear aligner orthodontics to the next level. In a field which is historically protected/guarded by the orthodontic profession Dr Vandana is very generous with her years of specialist knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend this to every dentist wanting to incorporate clear aligners in their practice.
