Natalie and Rosie are accredited instructors of NZRC CORE courses. The course content complies with the current NZRC guidelines and all participants receive certificates complying with their professional organisations. We believe 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 NZRC guidelines.

The New Zealand Resuscitation Council Certificate of Resuscitation and Emergency Care (CORE) is a standardised resuscitation curriculum. CORE certification provides the basic skills and knowledge for the management of life-threatening illness and injury both within and outside of a rescuer’s immediate working environment.
