HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is the newest release of the nationally recognised basic CPR unit. It replaces the old HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

This is a short life preservation course around the critical fundamentals of providing CPR (including DRSABCD protocol and safe and effective defibrillation (AED) use) in line with key recommendations from the following Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines:

  • ANZCOR Guideline 3 – Recognition and First Aid Management of the Unconscious Person
  • ANZCOR Guideline 4 – Airway
  • ANZCOR Guideline 5 – Breathing
  • ANZCOR Guideline 6 – Compressions
  • ANZCOR Guideline 7 – Automated External Defibrillation in Basic Life Support
  • ANZCOR Guideline 8 – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Face-to-Face (2 hours in class)

Knowledge + Practical Assessment in class – no online or out-of-class assessment.

First Aid Courses Tasmania is one of the only local first aid training providers to offer HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation as an entirely face-to-face course with no out-of-hours or online assessment.

Each main element of the course (knowledge and practical) is covered in a single 2-hour class run by a fully qualified and accredited CPR trainer.

Avoid the hassle of submitting assessments online or logging into virtual chat rooms and enjoy the personal touch of a traditional face-to-face first aid course.
