HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
This short course provides a recognised refresher for CPR practices for individuals that require a yearly update for employment purposes.
The unit covers the latest CPR practices, skills and knowledge as required by the Australian Resuscitation Council.
Successful participants will receive a statement of attainment for HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.
There are no pre requisites, entry or work placement, licensing or certification requirements for this course.
The online learning and theory assessments must be completed prior to attending a trainer led face to face session for skills practice and assessment.
The online component includes comprehensive learning and assessment that may take up to a week to complete.
You may not be allowed to participate in face to face session if online component is not completed in full.
The face to face session can be 4-6 hours long.
Your assessment entails two parts:
- Theory assessment (online)
- Practical assessment (face to face session)
Your practical assessment will require you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills of the following:
Adult CPR: performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor.
Infant CPR: performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface.
Defibrillation: Followed the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
Responded to a simulated first aid scenario including:
- Demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
- Provide an accurate report of the incident
It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training.
The competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide first aid & CPR and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life.
One requirement of the course is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor and 2 minutes on an infant resuscitation manikin. There can be no exceptions to these requirements that are clearly written into the Training Package.
Therefore, students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued with a statement of attainment, even if the course is a necessary part of their employment conditions.
HLTAID001 course fee: $80.
