HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation 

HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a nationally recognised qualification for workers who may be required to provide a first aid CPR response in a range of situations, include community and workplace settings.

This is a fun, hands-on practical training session (there’s no power points or reading from text books) carefully formatted to provide you with the practical confidence to administer first aid.

The CPR training includes using an defibrillator, so be sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing. For those with injuries or limited mobility, we can make a reasonable adjustment to your training session.

Are there physical requirements for this course?

It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training. The HLTAID competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. One requirement of the training package is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult CPR manikin placed on the floor. There can be no exceptions to these Australian Government 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 qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)      

Completing any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI. This is obtainable from usi.gov.au If a USI is not supplied and verified with usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.

If you are under 18 years of age

It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course.  The form for this can be found here.

ASSESSMENT – PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATIONS – Tasks and simulated scenarios

Simulated assessment environments must reflect the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment. Skills must be demonstrated working individually in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess students’ skills and knowledge. It’s important that students have knowledge of the content of this course. The assessable practical tasks are listed below, showing what skills will be assessed.

You will be assessed on your demonstrations of:

Adult CPR: Responded to a first aid scenario and 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: Responded to a first aid scenario and 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)
