HLTAID015 - Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy
HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy replaces The HLTAID007 course. The class is designed for medical and health professionals who require the use of oxygen therapy during emergencies.
HLTAID015 is an advanced course and requires that you have a fair amount of first aid knowledge to begin with. All students must first complete the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course, as the information and skills from that training is required knowledge in HLTAID015.
Much of the training we provide at First Aid Courses Tasmania is hands-on, and the Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course is no exception. Our training environment aims to give you the full support needed. When you take a First Aid Courses Tasmania course, you’re guaranteed to be led by a highly qualified and professionally experienced first aid trainer. The course format provides a safe space and endless opportunities for students to attempt the learnt tasks and ask as many questions as needed.
The training will cover the following topics:
- CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
- AED use (Automated external defibrillator)
- Assessing vital signs (respiration, pulse, oxygen saturation)
- Basic airway adjuncts
- The “Five Rights”
- Safe administration of oxygen (legal requirements, correct use, cleaning, sterilisation and storage of oxygen equipment)

Your Personal USI Number
The current government regulations require that anyone studying any form of accredited Vocational Education and Training (VET) have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number and provide it to their trainer. These are free, and it’s a quick and easy process to register for one. You can do so in about five minutes by visiting the USI website and applying for a number. Your USI number is unique to you. All accredited VET courses you study will be associated with that number – it’s a little like a Tax File Number.
Our Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course is a blend of both theory and hands-on techniques.
Both theory and practical assessments take place during the class.
After training, as long as you have successfully completed the assessments, you’ll be certified. You’ll even receive your certificate that same day!

Why do I need Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy?
There are many professional roles where it’s important to know how to assist a victim who is suffering from breathing difficulties or hypoxemia.
These conditions are beyond the range of basic first aid. They deal with equipment not available to the common people, like the use and maintenance of emergency oxygen equipment, which is extremely dangerous in untrained hands.
The HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course provides the skills needed during these situations. If you’re working in a role that requires you to provide this type of aid, this training is crucial!
