HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Course Outline

Our CPR course will benefit anyone wanting to learn how to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in an emergency situation in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines. The course provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform CPR safely and manage an emergency situation in the Education and Care sector, local community or workplace until emergency services arrive.

This course is relevant to all persons who may be required to provide CPR, in a range of situations.

CPR is a lifesaving technique which can sustain life until emergency services arrive or a medical professional is available.  You will gain the knowledge and confidence to perform CPR on an adult and infant, with compression and ventilation skills.

For currency within this course, the recommendation is for renewal every 12 months. 

This course meets the regulatory requirements as stipulated by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Authority.
