CPR Done Differently Course Overview

The HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) course equips with the critical knowledge and skills to provide quality CPR and use a defibrillator, significantly enhancing the chances of survival for adults, children, or infants in cardiac arrest.

You’ll learn how to recognise and assess emergency situations, ensure safety, summon assistance, execute CPR according to the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines, operate an automated external defibrillator (AED), follow the DRSABCD action plan, and record the event details. The certification is valid for one year and must be renewed annually.

First Aid Pro is a trusted registered training organisation, trusted Australia-wide. And committed to offering a supportive environment where all participants are well-equipped to demonstrate their practical CPR skills with complete competency.

What To Expect At Your Walk In CPR Assessment

After completing the online components, walk into our centrally located Adelaide CBD assessment centre at any time between 8am and 4pm on your chosen day. Your assessment will cover:

  • Be able to closely follow ARC guidelines.
  • Make sure the patient is positioned so that their airways are kept open and clear.
  • Adhere to the ARC’s instructions.
  • Carry out at least 2 minutes of continuous CPR by yourself, including 5 cycles of chest compressions and breaths on a manikin on the ground.
  • Operate an Automated External Defibrillator directed to give at least one shock.
  • Maintain CPR with minimal breaks, even when switching rescuers.
  • Attend to any vomiting or regurgitation quickly and safely.
  • After the CPR, hand over the situation to emergency services and report events accurately.
  • Reflect on the incident to gain insights from it.
  • Stick to ARC guidelines.
  • Conduct continuous CPR for a minimum of 2 minutes, completing 5 cycles of compressions and breaths on a manikin placed on a firm surface.

Achieving proficiency in these techniques is essential for successfully passing your assessment. The goal of this practical evaluation is to demonstrate your preparedness to deliver effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation during actual emergency situations.

CPR Refresher Courses Adelaide

The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends annual CPR retraining to ensure individuals are up to date with the most recent CPR guidelines and techniques, keeping their skills sharp and ready for use.

Furthermore, certain professions, especially within the healthcare and education sectors, require CPR certification to be updated every year and General First Aid training to be retaken every three years.

First Aid Pro’s innovative CPR Done Differently course Adelaide, featuring on-demand assessments, makes updating your CPR credentials simple and easy.

It’s also crucial to note that most Australian States do not accept online CPR certifications that lack practical training components. However, with Adelaide’s CPR Done Differently, renewing your CPR certification annually is straightforward, ensuring your qualification is recognised nationwide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will There Be Wait Times on My Chosen Booking Day?

We aim to keep minimise wait times on your nominated day for the practical Adelaide assessment. Nevertheless, fluctuations in student numbers and the length of assessments can lead to some delays. Your patience is appreciated, and we suggest coming prepared to adapt as required.

How Long Will My Assessment Take?

The length of your practical assessment can vary, and we suggest that you allow for an hour. The total time needed will also be dependent upon your skill proficiency and confidence in demonstrating the specific requirements and critical CPR competencies.

Do I Need to Complete My Online Learning Before My Practical Assessment?

Yes, completing the online learning components is critical before you attend your practical assessment. This allows you to come ready with the theoretical knowledge required to demonstrate your CPR skills in person with complete competency.

Are there any physical requirements for a CPR course?

To prove your proficiency in the hands-on CPR assessment, you'll need to conduct CPR on both adult and infant manikins. This demands that you have the physical and mental capability to carry out these practical exercises, which includes kneeling on the floor and executing unbroken CPR for 2 minutes.

Can I Enrol in This as a CPR Refresher Course?

Certainly! Our Adelaide CPR Done Differently course is ideal for those needing to renew their CPR certification. It's designed to update your skills in line with latest guidelines and practices and is a fully accredited CPR course.

Can You Do a CPR Course Online?

Yes, you can complete the theoretical aspects of CPR training online. Most Australian States, however, mandate a practical in-person assessment. This is considered essential to ensure that students acquire the hands-on skills needed to perform CPR with competence. Our Adelaide CPR Done Differently course provides a blend of online learning and walk-in practical assessments in line with this requirement.

Are Online CPR Courses Valid?

They are, but in Australia, CPR assessment generally requires practical demonstration. An online first aid qualification such as Adelaide CPR Done Differently is valid because it includes this component with face-to-face practice and assessment to prove CPR competency.

In general, the online components can be completed in a few hours. The practical assessment workshop, designed to be both thorough and time-efficient, generally takes around 1 hour.

How Much Is a CPR Course?

Our Adelaide CPR Done Differently course is priced at $39, making it a highly cost-effective choice for those looking to gain or renew their CPR certification through a nationally recognised program.

Can You Fail a CPR Course?

You can fail if the necessary competencies are not demonstrated during the practical assessment workshop, however our highly experienced trainers are always there to provide support and to give you the best possible opportunity for success.

How Long Does a CPR Certification Last in Australia?

In Australia, health regulators strongly recommend renewing CPR certification yearly. This industry requirement means that individuals remain aware of the most recent CPR techniques, and ensures they can confidently deliver timely, quality life-saving aid.
