  • Qualification
    Pre-requisites
    There are no pre-requisites for the CPR course. Participants are however required to have a minimum level of Literacy and Numeracy to be allowed admittance to this course.
    Please notify us if you have any medical conditions or special needs that may prevent you completing all practical assessments. This includes performing CPR on the floor on a mannequin. It is a requirement that CPR be performed for at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor.
  • COURSE CONTENT
    Performance Evidence 
    Evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit in the context of the workplace or community setting.
    There must be evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks in line with State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies and workplace or site procedures:
    • managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, breathing casualty including appropriate positioning to reduce the risk of airway compromise
    • managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing adult, including:
    • performing 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
    • following the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver at least one shock
    • demonstrating a rotation of single rescuer operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
    • responding appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
    • handing over to emergency services
    • providing an accurate verbal report of the incident
    • reviewing the incident
    • managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing infant, including:
    • performing 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.
    Knowledge Evidence
    Demonstrated knowledge required to complete the tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit:
    • guidelines and procedures including:
    • relevant ARC guidelines to managing the unconscious breathing and non-breathing casualty and provision of CPR
