HLTAID001 - Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Most employers require their staff to hold a CPR qualification. It is also a part of various Early Childhood, School Age and Education Support qualifications. While ACCCO specialises in nationally recognised first aid qualifications for those employed with children and in Education environments, we also provide training to a wide range of industries too! Depending on the qualification selected, students learn to provide a first aid response to infants, children and/or adults. This may include emergency situations, first aid procedures, DRSABCD, using an AED, anaphylaxis, allergies, bleeding, fractures and much more.

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.

important information for accco students

If you are completing a first aid course as a part of a qualification (eg Certificate III or Diploma), please consult your Study Plan/ Training Plan and ONLY enrol in the code listed. If you complete a different first aid to your qualification, then credit cannot be granted. Courses are specific and not transferable.

For example: the HLTAID003 qualification sits within some Education Support programs, whilst the HLTAID004 qualification primarily sits within the Education and Care programs. It is your responsibility to enrol in the relevant unit for your program of study. Please contact ACCCO directly if you are unsure.
