HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

CPR Courses – Melbourne and Geelong

HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Course Description

Cardiac arrest is a medical emergency that can lead to death. With urgent medical care to restart the heart, survival is possible.

Quick decision making is required to recognise and assess a cardiac emergency, call for medical assistance and perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) procedures which will increase the chance of survival for a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally.

In this CPR course, you will learn these skills, in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines, including using an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to rotate first aiders with minimal interruptions to compressions, and what to do if the casualty regurgitates or vomits.

The course also covers conveying accurate incident details when handing the casualty over to emergency services, how to review an incident, to recognise any psychological impacts on self and other rescuers, to seek help if required and for improvement of own personal skills and response times.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to provide for onsite workplace CPR Training?

I supply the manikins and all training equipment required for the class.

All I need from your workplace is enough chairs for each of the participants and an open area to train in.

Is there a minimum number of participants required for a group booking?

I require a minimum of 6 participant to run an onsite workplace group training session

Is there a maximum number of participants required for a group booking?

I can train a maximum of 20 participants at a time.  If maximum amount of participants are being trained I require enough room for manikins to be placed on the ground and an extenstion of 30 minutes will be added to the training session to allow for adequate practice and assessment time and ensure your team receives quality training.

If there is insufficent space at your venue then back to back express classes are always a great alternative to ensure the best training for your staff.

Can I still get a certificate if I cannot perform CPR on the floor?

To qualify for a Nationally Recognised Certificate for HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, it is a requirement participants are able to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin on the floor. 

While reasonable adjustment can be made like extra time or a chair for assistance the CPR assessment on an adult manikin must be completed on the floor and to Australian Resuscitation Standards to qualify for a certificate.

If you have back or knee problems that prevent you from kneeling please contact your supervisor or myself prior to training as you may only be able to recieve a certificate of attendance.

What if I just want training for myself?

That’s great! I look forward to seeing you in one of my public classes!

I run CPR classes open to the public every Friday at Waterman Eastland at Eastland Shopping Center in Ringwood.

Bookings can be made via the booking calendar above.

When do I need to renew my CPR certificate?

According to the Australian Resuscitation Council it is reccommended that you renew your CPR training annually to keep your skills and knowledge up to date.

What is a USI and how do I find my USI ?

A USI is your Unique Student Identification number. This is issued by the Government and you keep it for life. If you have completed any VET training such at HLTAID011 Provide First Aid or other Nationally Recognised courses then you will likely already have a USI.
