There must be evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks in line with state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines and workplace procedures:

followed DRSABCD in line with ARC guidelines, including:

  • performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
  • performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
  • performed at least 2 minutes of Bag-valve-mask ventilation and at least 2 minutes of compression during a two rescuer procedure on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
  • responded appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • managed the unconscious breathing casualty
  • followed the prompts of a Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • followed single rescue procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions

responded to at least three simulated first aid scenarios contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting, including:

  • demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  • conducted a visual and verbal secondary survey assessment of the casualty
  • assessed vital signs (respirations, pulse and temperature)
  • communicated effectively with a first aid team providing direction and coordination of other first aiders
  • post-incident debrief and evaluation
  • provided an accurate verbal and written report of the incident

applied first aid procedures for the following:

  • allergic reaction
  • anaphylaxis
  • bleeding control
  • choking and airway obstruction
  • conducted a basic triage for multiple casualty incident
  • envenomation (using pressure immobilisation)
  • fractures, sprains and strains (using arm slings, roller bandages or other appropriate immobilisation principles)
