HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (previously HLTAID001)

Public Training Booking
This unit (previously known as HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation) describes the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a person (infant, child and adult) who is unresponsive and not breathing until the arrival of medical support and subsequent transfer to hospital.
This unit will train students in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines and applies to people who may be required to provide CPR, in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.
Our CPR training will train students to care for and manage a person in cardiac arrest and provide quality instructional skills on life support (correct ratio of rescue breathing to chest compressions).
Each student will have their own manikin to ventilate and compress the chest to perfect their technique.

More About This Course
Your trainer will be either a nurse or a paramedic - there can be no better trainer than one who has "lived" the experience. As a trusted health professional, they will teach the "why" of first aid and are committed to you leaving your course with confidence and competence.

Premium Health believes every student in our CPR courses should have their own manikin - this means there is no waiting around for "your turn". Learning is best remembered by "the doing", this means the more time you actively spend time on the manikin the greater the retention of the skill, so when you may need to recall how to do CPR you are more able to recall and perform the skill.

Our CPR training will help you manage and care for a person in a cardiac arrest and teach you the skills of life support (correct ratio of rescue breathing to chest compression's) using the Premium Health Method.

  • The DRSABCD action plan and responding to emergency situations

Anyone over the age of 14 years are eligible to attend. Students attending the course will be required to demonstrate their physical ability to perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor.
