Why do I need CPR?

HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation covers the necessary knowledge and skills to recognise potentially life-threatening CPR emergencies AND provide practical CPR in real-world settings. 

How do I get qualified for CPR?

HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a combination of knowledge (theory) and practical (skills).

Students completing the Face-to-Face course will be assessed on the knowledge (theory) in-class.

Students completing the Learning Online course will be assessed on the knowledge (theory) online.

Practical assessment is completed in-class for both courses as it is an industry requirement for students to be observed performing first aid skills by a qualified first aid trainer. 

How do I do CPR Learning Online?

Learning Online is a simplified way to complete a CPR course. Learners gain access to their secure Student Portal, Vasto, upon enrollment. They can work through all the knowledge components (including the theory assessment) in their own time before coming into a shortened in-class practical session to complete skills observation.
