Who should attend?
This course is designed for all persons who seek the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain breathing and circulation in an adult, child or infant following cardiac arrest or any other serious medical incident where CPR may be required. This may be parents, childcare workers, teachers or any other individual. It is recommended that participants have year 10 level reading and writing capabilities. It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training.
One requirement of the training package is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of delivering CPR unassisted, on the floor, for 2 minutes. Students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued a Statement of Attainment, even if the qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.
Can overseas visitors complete this training course?
International students who hold a valid ‘Student Visa’ can enrol into this course without any interuption to their approved course of study or approved work limits. This does not apply to all courses offered by Height Safety Engineers so please check the conditions for each course prior to enrolling.
International visitors who hold a Working Holiday Visa may be eligible to enrol into our courses once they arrive in Australia. This is important as some occupations in Australia will have legislative and/or licencing requirements relating to qualifications. International visitors will still be required to provide a valid USI (Unique Student Identifier) prior to enrolling into any Nationally Recognised Training. When registering for your USI number if you select Non-Australian Passport (with Australian Visa) as your form of ID, you will need to enter your Non-Australian passport number when creating your USI. The following details on the passport must match in order to verify in the USI registry system:
- Family Name
- Given Name(s)
- Date of Birth
- Passport Number
- Country of Passport
Students from New Zealand will not be able to create a USI using their New Zealand passport until your passport has been registered with the Australian Department of Immigration. This will only happen when the student crosses the border into Australia. Once the passport is registered with the Department of Immigration it can be verified and the student will be able to create a USI using their New Zealand passport.
If you are an International Visitor, you will need to provide a copy of your Visa and/or Passport by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Visa details will be verified for eligibility to participate in accredited training within Australia. If you are ineligible, a full refund of fees paid will be provided.
