UETDRRF004 Perform Rescue From a Live LV Panel

Sometimes referred to as Low Voltage Rescue (LVR) with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Perform a Rescue From Live LV Panel

The Low Voltage Rescue training course is essential for working with low voltage (LV) live switchboards. The class includes the performance of rescue procedures from live LV equipment.

This course outlines the mandatory requirements of rescue from a live LV panel. It teaches you how to apply these techniques to the context of transmission, distribution, or rail work functions. It encompasses responsibilities for health, safety and risk management processes at all operative levels and adherence to safety practices as part of the standard work.

Unit includes:

  • UETDRRF004 – Perform rescue from a live LV panel
  • HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Covid-19 Precautions

At First Aid Darwin, your health and safety are our priority. We apply infection control measures and COVID-19 practices across all our training facilities. Please remember if you are unwell or experiencing any symptoms, we ask that you contact us to reschedule your training. For further information, please email courses@firstaidpro.com.au.

4 Hour Face-to-Face Training & Assessment

This first aid course is taught face-to-face for four hours in the classroom and includes required knowledge and practical training.

We assess all learners through a combination of the following assessment methods:

  • Practical Demonstrations: Simulated scenarios/roleplaying
  • Project (incident report)
  • Knowledge Assessment

No Online Workbook or E-learning

For ease and convenience, First Aid Darwin tries to minimise the stress of any online learning. While we do have mandatory pre-course reading requirements, it is self-paced and self-directed. Before attending the course, you need to complete a quiz and bring it to the session on the day to prove you have completed the pre-reading. The actual number of study hours required for each learner to complete the reading and quiz varies depending on the learner’s existing knowledge, skills and experience.

Course Requirements

  • Participants must be at least 14 years of age (those under 18 must provide a signed parental consent form).
  • Prepare verbal incident reports or provide information to prepare an incident report (e.g. first aid report).
  • Communicate effectively and assertively in an incident (e.g. give a casualty handover).
  • Use literacy and numeracy skills to read, interpret, and apply guidelines and protocols (e.g. read and follow ARC guidelines).
  • Perform at least two minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles of both compression and breaths) on an adult manikin placed on the floor.
  • Perform at least two minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles of both compressions) on an infant manikin placed on the firm surface.
  • Physical fitness: Participants must have the physical capacity to complete a practical demonstration of a simulated LV panel rescue.

LVR/CPR Certificate

First Aid Darwin prides itself on offering high-quality training and excellent customer service. We go to great lengths to ensure that all candidates who successfully complete the UETDRRF004 Perform Rescue From a Live LV Panel and HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation courses receive their nationally accredited certificate on the same day they complete their training. 

You will need to complete the preliminary reading and associated quiz and provide us with your Unique Student Identifier number (USI) in order for us to grant your certification. You must supply your USI number before the course concludes.

Certificates are issued electronically and sent to the email address you provide during registration. Paper copies of the certificate are available for an additional fee of $12.00, which includes postage.

The Australian Government recommends that refresher training annually.

USI Requirements

In line with new government regulations, from January 1, 2018, all students undertaking a nationally recognised training course need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). USI’s only need to be created once and the number generated is yours for life. So, if you are already studying at college or university, you likely have a USI that you can use. An application for a USI takes less than five minutes. You can apply HERE.
