The old CPR course HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation was recently superseded by HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Skills Training College is a registered training organisation (RTO) that is offering the new nationally accredited HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This is also a CPR refresher course or CPR update for those who need to renew their qualifications. CPR qualifications should be renewed annually.
This first aid course is perfect for learners who wish to become a:
This course will teach you how to perform CPR in a range of situations. The techniques you learn reflect the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines, so you can be confident that you are learning the most up-to-date methods. Because adults and infants don’t have exactly the same anatomy, you will get hands-on training on baby, child and adult manikins. What’s more, you will also learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED).
The nationally recognised CPR course teaches you how to:
Respond to an emergency situation
Perform CPR procedures
Communicate details of the incident
Review the incident
You don’t need any formal academic qualifications to take this CPR course. Although you can do this first aid training if you are 14 or older, you need a signed consent form from a guardian or parent if you are under 18.
Numeracy and Literacy
Specifically, students need the ability to:
Students must be able to kneel and perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor. They also must be able to perform the same on an infant manikin placed on a firm surface.
Additional requirements for International Students:
International students must be on a student visa that allows them to enrol in a short course (Check with the Department of Home Affairs prior to enrolment). They must also be enrolled in a principal CRICOS course and meet English language requirements.
There are no formal prerequisites for the units included in this course. However, Skills Training College’s training and assessment delivery strategy requires that prior to the course, learners complete:
The question should be ‘why not do CPR?’. CPR and defibrillation save lives. It’s also the case that resuscitation skills and knowledge are needed and even mandated in all sorts of occupations. For instance, childcare workers, teachers, sports coaches, flight attendants and even electricians either have to know how to do CPR or ought to. That’s why it’s an essential first aid course.
CPR involves pushing the chest in the right spot and blowing air into the lungs so as to maintain the flow of oxygenated blood when a person’s heart has stopped and they are not breathing. That can be a drowning victim or someone who has had a cardiac arrest.
Training in this lifesaving procedure means that in the crucial minutes before the ambulance arrives you can prevent permanent brain damage or death by keeping blood moving to the major organs.
The CPR Certification Course is available for only $49.
