Award issued

HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

It is recommended this unit be renewed every 12 months in line with industry standards. Locate the most current training package at training.gov.au

Are there physical requirements for this course?

It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training. The HLTAID competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. One requirement of the training package is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult CPR manikin placed on the floor. There can be no exceptions to these Australian Government requirements that are clearly written into the Training Package. Therefore, students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued with a statement of attainment, even if the qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.

Resources that will be available for this course  
  • Adult and infant resuscitation manikins
  • AED training device
  • Workplace injury, trauma and/or illness record report form
Pre-course study options

If there is pre-course study for the course, it is found in the student portal. Students must have access to a computer, phone, tablet etc. with access to the internet to complete the pre-course study online.

What does competency-based training actually mean? 

A competency-based training environment is centered on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.

Amount of training and the AQF volume of learning

The AQF Volume of Learning describes how long a student, who does not hold any competencies identified in the qualification, would normally take to develop all of the required skills and knowledge at that qualification level.

The amount of training comprises the formal learning activities that are provided to a student to enable them to meet the requirements of each training product and gain the skills and knowledge specified in the relevant training product.

Exceptions for duration of the course

Course durations are reflective of group sizes of between 4 and 15 students. If there are less students in a group, you may find course duration reduced by a maximum of 10%. If a class size exceeds 15 students, it may therefore also be necessary to increase course duration depending on the number of students.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)      

Completing any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI. This is obtainable from usi.gov.au If a USI is not supplied and verified with usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.

If you are under 18 years of age

It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course.  The form for this can be found here.

Foundation skills required

Foundation skills are the underpinning communication skills required for participation in the workplace, the community and in adult education and training.

  • Learning – to learn to provide first aid response in an emergency.
  • Reading – to administer medication for anaphylaxis or asthma.
  • Writing – to complete documentation such as reports/risk assessments.
  • Oral communication – to call the ambulance and provide a handover.
  • Numeracy – to count the number of compressions and breaths.

of adult CPR on a manikin on the floor. There is no room for reasonable adjustment as it is stated as what is required in the Training Package.

ASSESSMENT – THEORY – Multi choice question paper

You will be assessed on:

State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures:

  • ARC Guidelines relevant to the provision of CPR
  • Safe work practices to minimise risks and potential hazards
  • Infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions
  • Requirements for currency of skill and knowledge

Legal, workplace and community considerations:

  • Awareness of potential need for stress-management techniques and available support following an emergency situation
  • Duty of care requirements and respectful behaviour towards a casualty
  • Own skill, limitations, consent, privacy and confidentiality requirements
  • Importance of debriefing

Considerations when providing CPR:

  • Airway obstruction due to body position
  • Appropriate duration and cessation of CPR
  • Appropriate use of an AED including chain of survival
  • Standard precautions

Principle and procedures for first aid management of the following scenarios:

  • Allergic reaction and Anaphylaxis
  • Bleeding control and shock
  • Cardiac conditions, including chest pains
  • Chocking and airway obstruction
  • Respiratory distress, including asthma
  • Stroke

Basic anatomy and physiology:

  • Considerations in provision of first aid for specified conditions
  • Chest
  • How to recognize a person is not breathing normally
  • Response/consciousness
  • Upper airway and effect of positional change
ASSESSMENT – PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATIONS – Tasks and simulated scenarios

Simulated assessment environments must reflect the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment. Skills must be demonstrated working individually in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess students’ skills and knowledge. It’s important that students have knowledge of the content of this course. The assessable practical tasks are listed below, showing what skills will be assessed.

You will be assessed on your demonstrations of:

Adult CPR: Responded to a first aid scenario and performed 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;

Infant CPR: Responded to a first aid scenario and performed 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;

Defibrillation: Followed the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED)


  • Manage Infection control requirements
  • Followed the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • Demonstrated safe manual handling techniques and
  • Provide a verbal report of the incident
