2. You must upload a previously issued with a Statement of Attainment (or wallet card) by an RTO less than 3 years ago or be able to present a CV that demonstrates industry currency.
NOTE: this training is suitable as refresher if you have previously obtained a Unit of Competency in any of these qualifications:

- HLTAID002 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support OR
- HLTAID010 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support
This training addresses the theoretical component of Providing Basic Emergency Life Support. It does not test you with the practical skills required to Provide Basic Emergency Life Support and as such is only applicable for refresher training not initial CPR training.
All operations to which this course applies are subject to stringent Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) requirements, which may be imposed through State or Federal legislation, and these must not be compromised at any time.
Where there is an apparent conflict between performance criteria and OHS / WHS / HSE requirements, the HSE requirements take precedence.
This course will provide you with information about:
1 Respond to an emergency situation
2 Perform CPR procedures
3 Communicate details of the incident.
4 Review the incident
This course has been reviewed by a recognised subject matter expert.
It has been designed to comply with best practice national health and safety standards. Terminology has been chosen for clarity and ease of comprehension across jurisdictions. For example, ‘employer’ has been used to signify the broader term ‘PCBU’, while ‘WHS’ represents both work and occupational health and safety.
ALTHOUGH BASED ON THE ELEMENTS, THIS IS NOT A NATIONALLY RECOGNISED COURSE. THIS VOC COURSE CAN ONLY TO BE USED FOR REFRESHER PURPOSES IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY ACHIEVED A STATEMENT OF ATTAINMENT.
Note: Whilst a Statement of Attainments do not expire, different worksites have different policies and requirements of what refresher training should be and what is acceptable. Queensland sites, for example, typically want face to face only. You should check if you are unsure as there are no refunds available once you have downloaded certificates. This refresher course is a Verification of Competency undertaken by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 91826).
If you have not previously done this course, to be deemed competent, you must complete an in-person training session an accredited trainer with a registered training organisation.
