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
  • adrenaline auto-injector training device
  • AED training devices
  • workplace first aid kit
  • placebo bronchodilator and spacer device
  • different types of wound dressings and bandages
  • blankets and items to treat for shock
  • personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • workplace injury, trauma or illness record, or other applicable workplace or site incident report form.

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.

This course is appropriate for experienced first aiders and people who complete their training regularly.

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.
