The  Advance Resuscitation Techniques (ART) course is to develop skills and knowledge to manage life-threatening external bleeding, use oxygen, airway management devices and automated external defibrillators during resuscitation, and to administer oxygen to conscious or unconscious victims.

Target Audience:

To enrol in the Advanced Resuscitation Techniques participants must first meet the listed requirements:
  • Hold the unit of competency HLTAID011 Provide First Aid
  • The minimum age requirement is at least 15 years of age on the date of final assessment
  • Participants must also understand and have current knowledge in the area of basic first aid

Learning Outcomes:

  • HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
  • HLTAID015 Provide Advanced Resuscitation & Oxygen Therapy

Learning Methods:

You will also need an everyday standard of language‚ literacy and numeracy skills to be able to:
• follow written, verbal and visual instructions
• read and interpret a range of signs and symbols
• read and interpret written information
• make basic mathematical calculations to carry out everyday activities
• keep accurate written records.


Assessment is through demonstration‚ presentation and application of all elements of competency in the workplace. Participants will be required to complete activities that may include role-plays, oral and written questioning, practical demonstrations and performing scenarios.


For a ART qualification to be recognised for use in a workplace, you must refresh your skills by completing a refresher course every 12 months. This is a requirement set by the Australian Resuscitation Council.

Please note as of 1st September 2022 the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) have advised Registered Training Organisations that training and assessment activities undertaken during First Aid and CPR courses will revert to pre-COVID conditions. This means learners will be required to demonstrate rescue breathing techniques on manikins and not simulate such skills to the side of the manikin as previously allowed during the pandemic.  Learners will not have the opportunity to request an exemption from providing rescue breaths if they wish to gain a competent result in the Unit of Competency and/or qualification.
