The Resuscitation course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation to an adult, child or infant. The course content is based on the policies and standards of the Australian Resuscitation Council.

Target Audience:


To be eligible to receive this award, candidates must be at least 10 years of age on the date of final assessment

Learning Outcomes:

  • Respond to an emergency situation
  • Respond to signs of an unconscious casualty
  • Perform CPR
  • Communicate details of the incident

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 and questioning, addressing all aspects of competency and utilising simulated workplace scenarios. Participants will be required to complete activities that may include oral and written questioning, practical demonstrations and performing scenarios.


For a CPR 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.
