Natalie is an accredited instructor of NZ Resuscitation Council CORE courses. The course content complies with the current NZ Resuscitation Council  guidelines and all participants receive certificates complying with their professional organisations. She believes that effective training is as true to life as possible, and we use the latest high fidelity QCPR Laerdal manikins.

From January 2017, Resus Nelson Ltd will be teaching the new CORE courses according to the NZ Resuscitation Council guidelines.

The New Zealand Resuscitation Council Certificate of Resuscitation and Emergency Care (CORE) is a standardised resuscitation curriculum.

Testimonial
This session exceeded our expectations and was the best CPR training I have ever had. I was delighted to have a few of the Physiotherapists email me back following the course stating how impressed they were. It was awesome to finally get a look at a defibrillator and to hear it in use. The small class size is perfect, your approach is informative and entertaining. Thank you. - Kate Gordon, Activate Physiotherapy
