CPR Course Essendon

This course, which is officially referred to as HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, equips students with the ability to identify when CPR is necessary and to execute it in a safe and effective manner.

Although CPR training is incorporated into a fundamental first aid course, it is a distinct discipline that necessitates its own set of skills and knowledge. A CPR training course is designed for individuals who are either unable to attend a full first aid course due to their busy schedules or who already possess a rudimentary understanding of first aid and wish to learn CPR.

The CPR training course offered by Skills Training College instructs students on the seven steps necessary to perform CPR in a safe and effective manner, as well as the mnemonic devices that can be used to recall the steps. Additionally, the course covers the distinctions between the requirements of children and adults when performing CPR.

The duration of our CPR training course is a mere 90 minutes. Students receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment in CPR upon successfully completing this course.

Enrolment & Eligibility

Our first aid, CPR, and CPR refresher training courses have no academic or work experience based requirements to enrol. All students need to do is to meet the following basic prerequisites:

  • Students will need a basic understanding of both written and verbal English. This ensures they’re equipped to understand the course training materials and their trainer.
  • Students must be at least 14 years of age. Any student under the age of 18 must submit a signed Parental Consent Form at least 48 hours before commencement of training
  • Students will require a Unique Student Identifier (USI) Number. If you’ve studied before you may already have one which you can find by searching online.
  • Basic levels of fitness and physical ability

Essendon CPR Refresher Course

In order to maintain its validity, the Australian Resuscitation Council mandates that CPR training be completed annually. In order to maintain their first aid compliance, the majority of workplaces will also mandate that you adhere to these guidelines and undergo regular CPR training.

It is imperative that CPR skills become second nature. In the event of an emergency that necessitates CPR, the situation is likely to be extremely distressing and difficult, and it is imperative that you do not attempt to recall the necessary steps. CPR renewal training ensures that these abilities are permanently ingrained, thereby ensuring that you are consistently equipped to save a life.

First aid certificates do not inherently expire, but for up-to-date skills, consider a refresher every three years. Skills Training College provides refresher courses in first aid and CPR, ensuring your capabilities stay current.

While CPR training doesn’t technically expire, it’s advisable to take refresher training annually. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends this frequency, and most job positions requiring CPR compliance adhere to this schedule.

Losing your first aid or CPR certificate is not a problem. Simply reach out to us, and we’ll guide you through the steps to obtain a replacement certificate.

In some parts of Australia we are able to offer online or hybrid training options. Generally speaking however, online training is not an option for CPR or first aid in Cheltenham. Both first aid and CPR require practical skills which can only be evaluated through face-to-face, onsite training and assessment activities and not through online learning. As such, our first aid training must be conducted on site and we cannot offer online first aid courses in this instance.

Our first aid training is conducted in person in-person in a classroom setting. The course content consists of practical activities such as providing CPR to a training mannikin, meaning there are no first aid online classes.

Everyone, not just medical professionals, should consider a first aid or CPR course. It’s particularly beneficial for childcare workers and essential for workplace readiness. First aid and CPR training showcase commitment and passion, opening pathways to professional development.

Completing CPR is part of a first aid certification. As such, our first aid qualification can be considered further learning from CPR.

Completing an emergency first aid course opens up several avenues of further learning in the field of first aid. Further education opportunities are available in the fields of remote first aid, and first aid for education and care settings. Specific examples include:

  • HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting
  • HLTAID013 Provide First Aid in a remote or isolated site
  • HLTAID014 Provide Advanced First Aid
  • HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy
  • HLTAID016 Manage first aid services and resources

Not all of these qualifications are available through Skills Training College.
