This course has been designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to provide initial life support through CPR.
Anyone can be confronted with a medical emergency at any time; it is not predictable and may involve a friend or family member. This course has been designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to provide initial life support to a casualty until a handover to medical professionals is possible.
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.
This unit applies to all persons who may be required to provide CPR, in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.
Renewing your CPR skills can save a life. This has been the case for a number of ASSET students.
On successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Statement of Attainment.
Students must be physically capable of responding to first aid emergency scenarios, including providing CPR to a manikin on the floor. Anyone in a wheelchair or with other disabilities that may impact their participation in these activities should contact us to discuss their individual circumstances before enrolling.
International students are accepted into this course.
