Why Learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) combines mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions to deliver oxygen rich blood and artificial circulation to an unconscious and not breathing normally person until medical help arrives.

Bystander CPR can be life-saving and increases the person’s chances of survival if started soon after the heart has stopped beating. For every minute of delay 10% chance of survival has been lost. If no CPR is performed, it only takes three to four minutes for the person to become brain dead due to a lack of oxygen.


This Unit of Competency provides the skills and knowledge required to perform CPR in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. There are no pre-requisites for this course, which means that you don’t need any other course qualification to enrol.

Simulated assessment environments will simulate the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment. 

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment to certify that you have been trained and shown competence in HLTAID001 Provide CPR.
