HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

The HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) course is the NEW updated version of this course, replacing the superseded HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) from 2021. 

In day to day life, in the workplace, in the community or at home, you may be confronted by a life-threatening emergency such as someone experiencing Cardiac Arrest. Quick decision making and knowledge on what to do could save someone’s life.

This course provides you with the skills and knowledge to recognise when someone is unconscious and not breathing normally (Cardiac Arrest) and increase their chance of survival by calling an ambulance and performing potentially lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), including using a defibrillator, until emergency services arrive to take over.

The course is delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applies to all workers or members of the community who may be required to provide CPR in the event of an emergency.
