Refresher - CPR/LVR Training

Course Overview

This course is an industry recognised refresher course designed to ensure that participants continue to maintain currency with regard to their cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and low voltage rescue (LVR) competencies.

This course is designed to ensure that participants maintain the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. This unit applies to all workers who may be required to provide CPR, in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.

It also extends to participants who require the knowledge required in the performance of rescue procedures from live Low Voltage (LV) apparatus, not including overhead lines and underground cables in the work place.

It specifies the mandatory requirements of rescue from a live LV panel and how they apply in the context of transmission, distribution or rail work functions.

It encompasses responsibilities for, health, safety and risk management processes at all operative levels and adherence to safety practices as part of the normal way of doing work.
