Prior to attending the course, students are sent a link to complete online learning and assessment. This must be completed prior to attending the practical session unless there are extenuating circumstances. In this situation, the student must advise the Trainer and Assessor on arrival to the practical session.
The practical session includes 4 hours of demonstration, practise and assessment of skills including the confirmation of knowledge gained from the online learning. Students must perform uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an infant manikin and adult manikin on the floor and use of an AED.
On successful completion of all assessments, students will receive a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment.
Students who may require additional support to complete this course are encouraged to call the St John WA Contact Centre on (08) 9334 1233 to discuss available options.
The HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation Unit of Competency standard requires a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. Students must be able to keel on the floor to perform CPR for an extended period of time.
Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard, it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to learners who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.
As St John WA Registered Training Organisation (RTO) is not on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS), this course is not available to international students (or dependants) in Australia on an International Student Visa. If this applies to you, please call the St John WA Contact Centre on (08) 9334 1233 to discuss available options.
