CPR Awareness Training

If someone near to you collapses, unconscious and not breathing, what would you do?

If you collapse, are your colleagues adequately trained to come to your assistance?

CPR Awareness is a one hour course that provides basic information that everone should know to assist in responding to these situations and (if needed) initiating cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation. By attending this course you could save somebody's life.

The University of Sydney has a network of Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs) that have been installed in strategic and publically accessible locations. By using an AED during CPR the chances of reviving a victim of sudden cardiac arrest are greatly increased. This course will demonstrate how to use these life-saving devices.

The course covers:

  • Aims of First Aid
  • Chain of survival
  • Legal considerations
  • Resuscitation, with hands-on practice of giving cardiac compressions (on a mannequin)
  • Defibrillation, with demonstration and information on AED locations
  • Local Help points.
