State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures:
- ARC Guidelines relevant to the provision of CPR
- Safe work practices to minimise risks and potential hazards
- Infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions
- Requirements for currency of skill and knowledge
Legal, workplace and community considerations:
- Awareness of potential need for stress-management techniques and available support following an emergency situation
- Duty of care requirements and respectful behaviour towards a casualty

ASSESSMENT - PRACTICAL - Physical demonstrations (skills)
The simulated assessment environments will reflect the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment. Skills must be demonstrated by the student working individually in an environment that provides realistic in-depth, industry-validated scenarios and simulations to assess students' skills and knowledge. It's important that students have knowledge of the content of this course. The assessable practical skills are listed below.
You will be assessed on responding to first aid scenario and task demonstrations for:
Adult CPR: Performing at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor; including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
Infant CPR: Responded to a first aid scenario and performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface;
Defibrillation: Followed the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED)
- Manage infection control requirements
- Responding appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
- Demonstrating safe manual handling techniques
- Managing the unconscious breathing casualty
- Providing a verbal report of the incident
