Edway’s Advanced Resuscitation Course (CLS) – Melbourne, is either a standalone accreditation, or can be used as a required part of the Provide Advanced First Aid Combo Course HLTAID006. WorkSafe’s Code of Practise requires ‘High Risk’ workplaces to have an Advanced First Aid Officer with Advanced Resuscitation accreditation for every 25 employees, two for 50 employees, and one extra Senior First Aid Officer for each 25 employees afterwards. Unlike the Provide Advanced First Aid Training, which is valid for three years; Provide Advanced Resuscitation must be refreshed after one year to be considered up-to-date.An Advanced Resuscitation accreditation is not only useful within the workplace; many other members of the general public often enrol for the course.
The training encompasses all necessary units for the Provide Advanced Resuscitation HLTAID007 Course.
Training consists of:
- A workbook which must be finished prior to attendance
- PowerPoint and tutor instruction
- Practical demonstrations which include role-play activities
- Note taking
- Online units and assessment
This course is held under the supervision of Edway Training (RTO No 91401) and has been approved for instruction by Australian Skills and Quality Authority (ASQA)
