Basic life support training

You must complete a basic life support (BLS) course in the 12 months before starting your first general practice term, and the course must meet RACGP criteria. Completion of BLS training in the 12 months prior to applying for Fellowship is also required. For more information refer to the Basic life support and advanced life support guide. We recommend you keep your BLS certification current throughout your training.


You must also have completed an advanced life support course within four years of applying for Fellowship.
