Same-day certification can be received when you meet all the requirements of the training course covering all theory, practice and practical work.
Yes, the CPR component is included in the First Aid training course. This will be listed on your first aid certificate.
CPR training requires the participant to do at least a 2-minute uninterrupted demonstration of CPR on the floor on an adult manikin, and that the learner has a working knowledge of DRSABCD. This is why completing the first aid course online is preferred for theory purposes and practical aspects need to be done in person with trainer theory, practice, and assessment.  
The online portion of the course is only one part of the requirements. There must be a working demonstration of CPR and knowledge-based on DRSABCD- to meet all training requirements. All other guidelines for meeting these outcomes also need to be met.
