Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a vital first aid skill that can save lives in a range of emergency situations. Mater Education offers the nationally recognised Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation certificate course, delivered by our team of expert instructors who have built their skills in the demanding and fast-paced hospital environment. The course arms participants with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to administer CPR on adults, children and infants and covers automated external defibrillator (AED) training, in-line with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.
Who should attend?
Our Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation course is designed for anyone looking to learn resuscitation skills or gain or renew a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certificate. This includes businesses requiring personnel trained in CPR, school employees, childcare centre employees, sporting organisation personnel and trainers, and high school students .
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.
The end of course 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.
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.
The course runs for 2.5 hours from 8.30 am - 11 am, 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.
