Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training is a vital and nationally recognised course designed to equip participants with the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to perform effective CPR interventions. This comprehensive training program adheres to the latest guidelines established by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and ensures participants are prepared to respond confidently in emergency situations.
Throughout this course, participants will acquire a solid understanding of the key principles of CPR, enabling them to perform chest compressions, provide rescue breaths, and utilize automated external defibrillators (AEDs) with precision. This hands-on training is invaluable for individuals seeking to enhance their ability to respond promptly and effectively to cardiac arrest scenarios in various settings, including homes, workplaces, and public spaces.
Key Course Highlights:
- Thorough exploration of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) guidelines as outlined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC).
- Practical training in performing CPR techniques, including chest compressions, rescue breaths, and AED usage.
- Detailed instruction on recognising cardiac arrest and responding appropriately to sudden medical emergencies.
- Realistic simulations and scenario-based learning to apply CPR skills effectively.
- Insights into the legal and ethical considerations related to CPR administration.

Evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit in the context of the workplace or community setting.
There must be evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks in line with State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies and workplace or site procedures:
- managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, breathing casualty including appropriate positioning to reduce the risk of airway compromise
- managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing adult, including:
- performing at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
- following the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver at least one shock
- demonstrating a rotation of single rescuer operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
- responding appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
- handing over to emergency services
- providing an accurate verbal report of the incident
- reviewing the incident
- managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing infant, including:
- performing at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface.
