First Aid & CPR Courses

Sr Catherine Rodwell

Survival CPR was established in 2001 by Sr Catherine Rodwell who offered CPR & first aid courses on a “part time” basis. She has since grown the business significantly when Catherine identified a need to provide the “man in the street” with emergency training.

Today, Survival CPR produces and delivers a variety of emergency courses to equip parents, au pairs, teachers, medical professionals, domestic workers, school children and corporate employees with the knowledge and skills to effect emergency response when necessary.

We are passionate about teaching parents and care givers what to do in a medical emergency involving their loved ones.  We are focused on empowering them with the skills of saving a life!  Everybody should be taught these skills and it’s our privilege to teach them!  Our trainers are highly qualified, highly experienced medical professionals who are out there saving lives every day. Survival CPR’s course is for parents ( to be ; of new babies and small children).

Learning basic life support techniques is a simple yet essential skill that everyone should have in order to deal with an emergency situation. So few people actually know how to save a life and yet it really is SO EASY!
