HLTAID015 – Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy

According to current government standards, the most up-to-date training qualification available in resuscitation and oxygen therapy is the HLTAID015 course – better known as Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy. Replacing the now outdated HLTAID007 course, HLTAID015 is designed for medical and other health professionals – including doctors and nursing staff – whose role requires the use of oxygen therapy in complex medical emergencies.

Unlike many of the training courses run by FirstAidPro Darwin, HLTAID015 is not a course for beginners – it requires a reasonable understanding of first aid. In fact, it’s assumed that anyone attending the HLTAID015 course has already completed the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course – the skills from that course are assumed knowledge for HLTAID015.

FirstAidPro Darwin is a fully accredited Australian RTO (Registered Training Organisation). Our HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course is compliant with all government standards for first aid training and recognised nationwide. Our first aid training courses are fully in line with the standards of the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC)and with various other peak clinical bodies such as Safe Work Australia.

At FirstAidPro Darwin, our training courses are very hands-on, and the Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course is an excellent example of this. Our training courses are highly immersive and provide a supportive environment to learn. Our trainers are highly qualified and experienced and always willing to answer questions. Students get the benefit of many years of real-world practical experience as part of the training. You’re not going to find a better option when it comes to learning CPR and oxygen therapy in an interactive and engaging way.

During the training, students will receive training in the following:

  • CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
  • AED use (Automated external defibrillator)
  • Assessing vital signs (respiration, pulse, oxygen saturation)
  • Basic airway adjuncts
  • The “Five rights.”
  • Safe administration of oxygen (legal requirements, correct use, cleaning, sterilisation and storage of oxygen equipment)

HLTAID007 is now HLTAID015

The previous standard in this area – HLTAID007 Provide advanced resuscitation – is now outdated. Originally established as a training standard by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training (aka, this standard has now been superseded by the new HLTAID015 course. The new course should be acceptable in all contexts where HLTAID007 was previously required – even where your workplace has older reference material that specifically requires HLTAID007 training.

Up until 2020, the highest benchmark for CPR and oxygen therapy first aid training was HLTAID007 Provide advanced resuscitation. HLTAID007, which was defined by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training (aka, has now been superseded by the HLTAID015 course. In any situation or work context where HLTAID007 training was previously required, HLTAID015 should now be the standard – even when older workplace documentation specifically refers to HLTAID007.

The updated standard includes the following qualifications as part of the course.

  • HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (previously HLTAID001)
  • HLTAID015 – Provide advanced-resuscitation and oxygen therapy (previously HLTAID007)

HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy is a half-day seminar, which generally takes place at one of our many first aid training venues. The course is generally provided as a single 5-hour block (with appropriate breaks included). Course times can vary but are usually between 9 am and 2 pm.

The following components will be included as part of the training:

  • Trainer-led demonstrations on the use of key equipment and skills and techniques used in resuscitation and oxygen therapy.
  • The chance to practise with the equipment, techniques and skills used in resuscitation, assisted and supervised by the trainer and including the opportunity to ask questions.
  • A variety of practical assessments, including role-plays, observations, class debriefs, and written and verbal incident reports.

Some prior reading is required as preparation for the course – which is all provided to you well ahead of your training date.

FirstAidPro Darwin’s HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course is the most interactive training of its kind currently on the market. The course is highly practical, with all assessments taking place during the training day – there’s no follow up exams on a later date. Once the course is completed, the certificates will be available to download digitally and print within 24 hours.

Advanced Resuscitation Training – Same Day Certificates

Completing the HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course will provide you with the following qualifications – recognised nationwide.

  • HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • HLTAID015 – Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy

This certification is fully accredited and suitable for any professional role requiring certification in HLTAID015 (or HLTAID007). The HLTAID015 certificate itself is valid for up to three years from the date of your training. However, you should note that ARC guidelines require CPR qualifications (including HLTAID009) to be taken every year to be current.

The cost of the full HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy training course – including all equipment, training materials, and certificates – is only $120. This can be even more affordable with our daily deals. And of course, if you find a training course offering the same qualification for a lower price, we’ll match it!

The HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy run at various times throughout a given week, but the most regular timeslot is from 9 am till 2 pm. Trainers for HLTAID015 need to cover a significant amount of information in the time they have, so standard practice is for the doors to be closed and secured at the exact start time of the course. Latecomers will generally be asked to reschedule their training to another date. As such, we ask all participants to arrive 15 minutes early to avoid missing out.

Requirements for enrolment

If you’re hoping to take part in our HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course, there are a number of conditions.

Firstly, HLTAID015 isn’t available to anyone under 14, so children are not permitted to attend. If you’re aged between 14 and 17, you can participate – provided you have signed consent from a parent or guardian.

It’s also a requirement that you’ve completed an accredited HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course – the skills and knowledge from this course are assumed for HLTAID015, and much of the learning of Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy builds on that knowledge.

There is also a reasonable amount of physical activity involved in the HLTAID015 – most significantly as part of the CPR section of the course. To participate in the course, you must be physically capable of the following:

  • Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult manikin placed on the floor
  • Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
  • Operate an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver at least one shock

A Covid-safe program

The health and welfare of our training participants is a very high priority for FirstAidPro Darwin. For this reason, we’re careful to follow all current government regulations when it comes to Covid 19 safety and social distancing. When taking part in one of our training courses, you’ll be expected to respect the following Covid 19 safety precautions (if they’re in place):

  • Sign-in sheets for participants
  • Maintaining safe social distance, where practical.
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE), including face masks.
  • Equipment and materials being regularly cleaned and sterilised.

In addition, for the safety and welfare of all students, we ask that anyone who is unwell or suffering from flu-like symptoms not attend. Simply contact us on or around the day, and we can reschedule your training to a later date – at no additional cost.

Your USI Number

Under the current government regulations for Vocational Education and Training (VET), you’ll need a Unique Student Identifier or USI number to take part in any accredited training. Unfortunately, FirstAidPro Darwin can’t provide this number for you – you need to apply for it personally. This number is then permanently associated with you and your official records, not unlike a tax file number. All VET courses you undertake will be linked to that number.

Fortunately, the application process is quite straightforward. You simply need to visit the USI website and begin an application.

Training Format

FirstAidPro Darwin’s Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy is a highly interactive training course with a strong blend of theoretical knowledge and applied practical skills. Students should expect a healthy amount of each during the course. All assessments (practical and theory) are included as part of the half-day seminar, so there are no follow-up dates for exams or other assessments. The trainer will also be on-hand at all times to field questions and provide assistance as needed.

Once the day’s training is complete, certificates will be issued and made available from FirstAidPro Darwin’s online portal within 24 hours.

You’ll learn the correct application of DRSABCD protocol in an emergency for people of any age – from naught to ninety.

Why do I need Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy?

For many professional roles, understanding how to assist a casualty suffering with breathing difficulties is fundamental to the job. Such situations are far beyond the scope of any conventional first aid training, and work with specialised gear such as emergency oxygen equipment. HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy provides the specialised training for precisely these situations, making it a must-have for anyone working in these fields.
