HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (Online)

HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation replaces the old HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation as the benchmark for basic accredited CPR training in Australia.

This shortened life-saving skills course covers all the key necessities of providing CPR (including DRSABCD protocol and safe and effective defibrillation (AED) use) in line with key recommendations from the following Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines:

  • ANZCOR Guideline 3 – Recognition and First Aid Management of the Unconscious Person
  • ANZCOR Guideline 4 – Airway
  • ANZCOR Guideline 5 – Breathing
  • ANZCOR Guideline 6 – Compressions
  • ANZCOR Guideline 7 – Automated External Defibrillation in Basic Life Support
  • ANZCOR Guideline 8 – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Learning Online (1 hour in class)

Knowledge  Assessment online + Practical Assessment in class – shorter sessions.

Learning Online is an inventive hybrid of online and face-to-face training that combines the best elements of both into one flexible and comprehensive course. Students complete the knowledge element of the course in their own time online through their student portal before coming to class for a single 1-hour session to enact their practical CPR skills in a secure environment that parallels the real world.

It rewards those who prefer the flexibility and freedom that is part and parcel of online learning.
