Additional Information:

These officially NZRC accredited courses get fully booked up at least 6 months in advance – book well in advance to avoid disappointment – short notice requests for enrolment are rarely actioned. We will accommodate requests as we are able.

Acute Dunedin Hospital area staff take priority when enrolments are requested and booked

Once successfully registered, the participant will be sent an official registration confirmation and then a further email with detailed course information 3-4 weeks prior to the course.

The course follows a strict cancellation and DNA policy:

  • Registered participants cancelling within the minimum 3 weeks of the course (as required by the NZRC) may not be able to be re-registered for another course for a minimum of 6 months
  • Registered participants that do not arrive (DNA) as scheduled may not be able to be re-registered for another course for a minimum of 12 months

All cancellations and DNAs are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Any individuals arriving that have not been formally registered cannot attend the course.

Registered participants cannot pass their registration to someone else. If a registrant cannot attend a course, they should email the course coordinator immediately to allow the standby system to be utilised if appropriate.

If requested, participants may be loaned a NZRC Advanced Rescuer manual for the course by the OCSL. These are sent to participants via the Southern DHB internal mail system and cannot be collected from the OCSL itself.

All participants must have a good ground-level understanding of resuscitation and be at least certified to the level of “Immediate Rescuer” to be enrolled onto the course.
