HLTAID009 - Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation UETTDRRF06 - Perform rescue from a live LV panel
There are two components to this course - cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and low voltage rescue (LVR).
The CPR component of this course gives students the confidence and competence required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on an unconscious casualty, in the context of an electrocution. The course is taught to the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.
The LVR component covers the skills and knowledge required for a person to carry out a risk assessment of the situation and perform a low voltage rescue without harm to themselves.
This course is aimed at those who have not completed a CPR/LVR course before. For those students who are refreshing their knowledge and skills, we recommend completing the CPR/LVR Refresher program (which is a 2.5 hour program).
Both CPR and LVR competencies should be refreshed every 12 months.
