Provide CPR HLTAID001 – First Aid Course

Also known as HLTAID009 - Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Provide CPR HLTAID001 is a standalone First Aid course, as well as a core unit of competency in the popular Provide First Aid HLTAID003 course.

Provide CPR HLTAID001 covers the theory and practice needed to provide First Aid in response to a breathing or cardiac emergency.

CPR technique combines chest compressions and artificial ventilation to return the flow of oxygenated blood to major organs when a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

When you’re trained to use this lifesaving procedure, you’ll be capable of potentially preventing a casualty from dying or suffering permanent brain damage due to oxygen deprivation.

Course Duration:

Reading and e-Learning assessment (around 1.5 to 2.5 hours) followed by 2 hours of face-to-face training and assessment.
