Statement of Attainment

On successful completion, participants will be issued with a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for HLTAID015 – Provide advanced resuscitation.

For many Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses, this unit may also contribute towards nationally recognised qualifications. The training may also provide an opportunity for professional development by increasing skills, knowledge and application in the work or home environment.


The law requires employers to provide a safe working environment and adequate facilities for the welfare of their employees. This means that appropriate First Aid measures need to be in place, including First Aid kits and suitably trained First Aid Officers who hold current qualifications.

Workcover’s First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice in New South Wales and WorkSafe’s First Aid In The Workplace – Compliance Code in Victoria both outline an employers’ obligation to keep the qualifications of their First Aid Officers current.

This short course allows you to refresh and maintain your knowledge of the essential skills required to perform Advanced CPR, in line with the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR) guidelines. Re-certification is recommended on an annual basis.

We can also track and notify you when a First Aid recertification is required for you or your team.
