This Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) course provides you with the skills to perform CPR on a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally. Upon completion, you will have confidence in your knowledge and skills to perform CPR on an adult, a child and an infant, and be able to describe alternative methods for delivering rescue breaths and how to manage a victim of drowning.

Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities and a written test paper. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.

Performance Evidence

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.

Knowledge Evidence

Demonstrated knowledge required to complete the tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit:

  • guidelines and procedures including:
    • relevant ARC guidelines to managing the unconscious breathing and non-breathing casualty and provision of CPR
    • potential incident hazards and risk minimisation processes when providing first aid
    • infection control procedures, including use of standard precautions and resuscitation barrier devices
    • requirements for currency of skill and knowledge
    • first aid codes of practice
    • appropriate workplace or site procedures relevant to the provision of first aid

    • safety and maintenance procedures for an AED
    • chain of survival
    • how to access emergency services
  • techniques for providing CPR to adults, children and infants including:
    • how to recognise that a casualty is unconscious and not breathing normally
    • rate, ratio and depth of compressions and ventilations
    • correct hand positioning for compressions
    • basic anatomy, physiology and the differences between adults, children and infants relating to CPR.

Assessment Conditions :

Each candidate to demonstrate skills in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, scenarios and simulations to assess candidates’ skills and knowledge.

Due to the nature of this type of training, it is acceptable for the performance evidence to be collected in a simulated environment.

Compression and ventilation skills must be demonstrated on resuscitation manikins following ARC guidelines for the purpose of assessment of CPR procedures.

Assessment must ensure access to:

  • adult and infant resuscitation manikins following ARC guidelines for the purpose of assessment of CPR procedures
  • AED training devices
  • personal protective equipment (PPE).

Simulated assessment environments must simulate real-life situations where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that workplace or community environment.

Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities and a written test paper. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.
