Course Entry Requirements

Participant’s need to have six (6) months on job experience within the electrical industry. Participants must be 14 years or older. Participants under the age of 18 are required to provide a consent form completed by their legal guardian which can be accessed by clicking here.

There is a pre-requisite for this course to have a current CPR Qualification (HLTAID009), however this LVR course is clustered with CPR so this is all done on the day.

It is also recommended that participants have sufficient literacy, language and numeracy skills to successfully complete the course. Examples of these are: basic writing skills, ability to understand English and verbal communication, ability to count to 30, calculate basic ratios, use a timer and tell the time. If a participant feels they need individual support in any of these areas please contact our Administration Manager on 07 5520 5068 or by clicking here.

Course Physical Requirement

There is a physical component to this course. Participants will be required to participate in role play activities, practical assessments, be able to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on a manikin placed on the floor and have the ability to move a patient at least 3 metres (one man drag).

If you feel you may have some difficulties with mobility or performing these tasks please contact us prior to training to discuss any concerns on 07 5520 5068 or online by clicking here.

$80.00 per participant (course fees include all training materials)

Free Student Resources: FAAE provides a great range of student resources available to all participants which is accessible by clicking here. FAAE highly recommends if a participant has no previous Low Voltage Rescue and CPR training experience that they complete pre-reading of the ABC of CPR guide prior to attending the face to face training.

Certification Assessment

First Aid Accident & Emergency offers a hands on approach to training with progressive assessments throughout the course. Assessments undertaken include: written/oral assessments, practical and role play demonstrations and completion of an incident report form. A combination of these assessment methods will provide the participant with the required skills and knowledge to rescue and resuscitate an electrical worker confidently. The assessor on the day of training may require a student to complete additional learning if they do not have the knowledge or skills to competently complete this course. Further face to face training will be organised at no cost until the participant meets the requirements.

Award and Certification

On successful completion of the required assessments, the participant will receive an A4 electronic Statement of Attainment emailed to their nominated email address for the nationally recognised units:

  • HLTAID009* Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
  • UETDRRF004* Perform rescue from a live LV panel

The electronic A4 Statement of Attainment (PDF) will be emailed following the training.

*formerly HLTAID001
*formerly UETTDRRF06

Certification Renewal

The current Electrical Safety Act requires competency to be re assessed in rescue and resuscitation every 12 months.
