The NZRC CORE Certification

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

These courses are not part of the FACT Co curriculum. We wholeheartedly endorse the NZ Resuscitation Council approved courses offered by Resuscitation Matters if your training needs call for a CORE Certificate.
