HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Looking to learn resuscitation skills or renew your Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certificate?

Mater Education offers the nationally recognised HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation certificate. Designed to develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to respond appropriately to cardiac emergencies, our cardiopulmonary resuscitation certification is in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.

As a vital component of first aid, knowing how to perform CPR is crucial for healthcare workers and many other professionals. From near drownings to cardiac arrests, CPR can potentially be lifesaving in a range of emergency situations.

Our cardiopulmonary resuscitation course is designed for:

  • Businesses requiring personnel trained in CPR
  • School employees
  • Childcare centre employees
  • Community organisations
  • Sports and recreation clubs
  • Students entering a health program.

To complete your CPR training in Brisbane under the supervision of expert instructors, enrol in the Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation program with Mater Education today. 


Entry requirements

As part of our enrolment requirements you must:

  • be able to read, write, speak and comprehend English at a competent standard
  • be able to physically perform the act of CPR on both adult and infant resuscitation manikins placed on the floor (at least two minutes on each)
  • provide written permission from a parent or guardian (if you’re under the age of 14).

Please note: if you are completing the First Aid course, CPR is included, therefore you do not need to enrol in this course as well

By registering for this course you confirm that you had an opportunity to clarify all aspects of the course including refund policy, assessment activities and appeals information. You agree that you have read, understood and had an opportunity to clarify all aspects of the enrolment information and thereby accept the terms and conditions of enrolment.

Learning Outcome

You’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.

When you successfully complete this Nationally Recognised Training you’ll receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.


Your assessment will include a mix of multiple-choice questions, role play and physically demonstrating CPR using a model of the human body (resuscitation manikin).

You must be able to demonstrate uninterrupted CPR on both adult and infant resuscitation manikins placed on the floor. So you should wear comfortable clothing when attending the course.

Duration and cost

The course is delivered over two hours, and includes additional pre-course learning (online).
Note: this course is the first component of the First Aid course; if you are enrolled in First Aid, you  will stay on to complete the remaining components.
