HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

First Aid Brisbane have built their trusted reputation by providing high quality, easy to implement nationally accredited training programs with excellent customer service. Fully accredited (RTO 40407), the First Aid Brisbane team train thousands of people from a wide range of industries and we aim to create a fun and friendly training atmosphere with an emphasis on hands-on practical skills and demonstrations that will give you the confidence to step up as a first responder in a medical emergency.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a critical first aid skill that can save lives and dramatically affect a person’s chance of surviving a medical emergency. Provide Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) covering AED is our most popular course and is offered both individually and as part of our HLTAID003 Provide first aid course.

Provide Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) covering AED teaches participants all the skills and knowledge needed to administer CPR on adults, children, and infants and how and when to use a defibrillation machine if required.

First Aid Course Delivery

2 Hour Face-to-Face Training & Assessment

The Provide first aid course is taught face to face for six hours in the classroom and includes required knowledge and practical training.

All learners will be assessed through a combination of the following assessment methods:

  • Practical Demonstrations: Simulated scenarios/Roleplaying
  • Project (Incident Report)
  • Knowledge Assessment

No Online Workbook or E-learning Required

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

  • Prepare verbal incident reports or provide information to enable preparation of an incident report (e.g. first aid report)

  • Use literacy and numeracy skills as require reading, interpret and apply guidelines and protocols (e.g. read and follow ARC guidelines)
  • Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles of both compression and breaths) on an adult manikin placed on the floor

First Aid Certificate 

First Aid Brisbane, pride themselves on offering high-quality training and excellent customer service. To that end, we go to great lengths to ensure that all candidates who successfully complete the HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation course are issued with their fully nationally accredited certificate on the same day or within 24 hours of completing their training. 

In order to issue the certification, you will need to have completed the prior reading and associated quiz and have provided your USI (Unique Student Identifier) number see below for more information. USI numbers must be supplied prior to the completion of the training course. Failure to provide a USI number within the allotted time may result in a delay in issuing your completion certificate. (T&C)

Certificates are issued electronically and will be sent to the email address you use when registering for the course. Paper copies of the certificate are available for an additional fee of $12.00 which includes postage.

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 be created once, and the number generated is yours for life. So, if you are already studying at college or university it is likely that you may already have a USI that you can use. Applications for a USI take less than 5 minutes and can be completed HERE.
