|HLTAID009 – Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

HLTAID011 – Provide First Aid
HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) must be completed annually for your Children’s Services certificate to remain valid until the 3-year accreditation has expired.
This course may contribute towards approved first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis training under the Education and Care Services National Law, and the Education and Care Services National Regulations (ACECQA).
The Minister of Education has not approved this course for School teachers and staff. Ministerial Order 706 states that school staff are to complete the full course in 22300VIC First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis. HLTAID011 Provide First Aid is the appropriate first aid course for all school staff.

Yes, CPR is included in HLTAID012 Childcare First Aid.
ACECQA state that HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education & Care Setting contributes towards First Aid, Anaphylaxis & Asthma.
If you are completing HLTAID012, there is no need to book in anaphylaxis and asthma separately.
HLTAID012 applies to a range of workers within an education and care setting who are required to respond to a first aid emergency, including asthma and anaphylactic emergencies. This includes early childhood workers and educators who work with school age children in outside school hours care and vacation programs.
Primary & Secondary School teachers are required to compete HLTAID011 Provide First Aid and depending on their school guidelines, 22578VIC Anaphylaxis and 22556VIC Asthma courses.
AFAC provides a blended HLTAID012 course with online, self-pace pre-course learning and face to face training.
The online, self-pace pre-course learning allows the duration of the face-to-face training to be completed in a shorter timeframe.
HLTAID012 courses cannot be conducted purely online as participants are required to demonstrate practical skills such as CPR on an adult, child and infant manikins, perform DRSABCD, show the correct use of a defibrillator, bandaging, managing fractures etc.
Due to the above requirements, it is highly unlikely that any HLTAID012 online course is an accredited course.
HLTAID012 is 7 hours.
HLTAID012 should be renewed every 3 years and the CPR component updated every 12 months.
HLTAID009 CPR must be renewed every 12 months and many organisation also require their staff to complete VU23090 EpiPen Annual Update every 12 months.
We recommend you leave approximately 240+ minutes to complete the online, self-paced pre-course assessments, however the duration can vary depending on your prior knowledge.
No. The performance evidence assessment requires participants to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin on the floor. For HLTAID012 participants, they will also be required to perform an extra 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on a child manikin on the floor.
