Demonstration of CPR Compressions

It is a mandatory assessment requirement in all CPR / first aid courses that participants demonstrate CPR on the floor, not on an elevated surface. To be assessed as competent in this course you must be physically capable of performing CPR on the floor. If you have an injury that limits your ability to adequately demonstrate CPR, you may attend the course and be issued a non-accredited Statement of Attendance.

On successful completion of this training, participants will be awarded a statement of attainment in HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.
