Course Overview

This unit provides participants with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation skills in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines. Participants will learn how to assess the need for CPR, perform CPR and provide useful information to emergency services taking over the care of the patient.

This course is aimed at people in the workplace or general community who wish to gain resuscitation skills for their workplace or personal benefit. Students must be over 14 years of age or have written parental/guardian consent to attend.

Participants are required to possess appropriate literacy and numeracy skills to read and comprehend course materials.

People completing this unit of competency attain the skills and knowledge required to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. The skills and knowledge described here relate specifically to performing CPR and do NOT address other aspects of resuscitation, life support or first aid.

During this training, you will need to demonstrate that you can:

  • Identify hazards to health and safety of self and others
  • Minimise immediate risk to health and safety of self, casualty and others by isolating any hazard(s)

  • Provide reports, where applicable, in a timely manner, presenting all relevant facts relating to performing CPR according to established procedures
  • Maintain confidentiality of records and information in line with statutory and/or organisational policies

Participants who demonstrate competency by passing both the theory and practical assessments will receive a Statement of Attainment for HLTAID001 Provide CPR issued by Improve Group RTO #31506, which is (normally) valid for 1 year in line with ARC guidelines.

Please note that to demonstrate competency in the practical component of CPR you must be able to conduct 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on the floor (following training package guidance).
