HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a life-saving skill, and those that know how to perform it are the only ones that can effectively assist someone who is in cardiac arrest, unconscious, unresponsive and/or struggling to breathe.

If you want to count yourself as someone who could be of assistance in a life-threatening situation like this, then you should probably take HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation pronto.

The First Aid Course Sydney is one of the few first aid training providers to offer HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation as a fully face-to-face course with no online or out of class assessment.

All knowledge and practical assessment requirements are covered in a single 2-hour class run by a fully qualified and accredited first aid trainer.

Avoid the hassle of submitting assessments online or logging into virtual chat rooms and enjoy the personal touch of a traditional face-to-face childcare first aid course.
