CPR Course WEST LAKES

This course, officially known as HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, teaches students how to recognise sudden cardiac arrest and correctly perform resuscitation on individuals in need.

While CPR is included in first aid training, it is also a distinct and independent field. A CPR course is an excellent choice if you want to assist in emergencies but lack CPR skills, or if a full first aid course doesn’t fit into your busy schedule.

In a CPR course, you will learn how to treat unconscious victims of all ages, including the differences between performing CPR on adults and children. After the ninety-minute in-person session, you will receive a statement of attainment that is recognised across Australia.

WEST LAKES CPR REFRESHER COURSE

For the most current CPR techniques, the Australian Resuscitation Council recommends annual CPR refresher training. Many organisations also require periodic retraining for employees to ensure compliance with their first aid regulations.

In an emergency, you should be able to perform CPR instinctively and confidently. Refresher training helps reinforce these techniques, making sure they remain second nature.

ENROLMENT & ELIGIBILITY

The prerequisites for enrolling in Skills Training College’s first aid and CPR courses are minimal. Enrollment does not require specific academic or professional qualifications. However, all students must meet the following basic requirements:

  • Proficiency in basic spoken and written English for course materials, instruction, and assessment activities.
  • The minimum age for students is eighteen, although younger applicants may enrol with appropriate permission from their parents or guardians.
  • A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is required for all students. If you have studied before, you should already have one; if not, you can easily obtain one online.
  • Basic levels of physical ability to perform CPR.
