Course aim

The aim of the course is to provide participants with the necessary skills and techniques to administer safe and effective First Aid and CPR in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.

Target learner group

The target learners for this course are employees currently working within the Australian Electricity Supply Industry. This includes employees of network asset owners, contractors and sub-contractors in electricity Generation, Transmission and Distribution.

Those who work on the network must maintain currency of skills and competency in a range of safety and technical competencies. Relevant safety related training programs are often mandated by regulation or industry agreements and documented in state codes of practice.

Most learners will be licensed and trade qualified or hold a Certificate in a related technical discipline. In addition to trade qualifications, the learner groups will have completed a range of electrical and plant safety related training programs related to the roles they hold. Due to the significant safety risks in the industry these employees work within highly proceduralised workplaces with mature workplace safety systems.

Workers in the industry are required to regularly complete workplace safety risk assessment and work planning documentation, and therefore bring a solid foundational understanding of risk assessment and workplace safety documentation concepts and practices to the program.
