Our obligation to you
We are required to provide clear evidence to enable you to decide if this advanced resuscitation course is suitable for you. This advanced resuscitation course teaches the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. This course is developed for existing workers in the industry who may require CPR training as recommended by the ARC. There are also specific industries that require additional training such as childcare workers, school teachers and other industries.
Choosing a training or education provider
Are there physical requirements for this course?
It is important to note that there are physical standards which relate to the level of performance required when undertaking accredited training. The HLTAID competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. One requirement of the training package is that you are to be assessed as physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult CPR manikin placed on the floor. There can be no exceptions to these Australian Government requirements that are clearly written into the Training Package.

DETERMINING AMOUNT OF TRAINING – TARGET STUDENT AND COURSE DELIVERY OPTIONS
Student cohort (types of students)
PYREXO TRAINING is required to determine the amount of training they provide to each student, with regard to the existing skills, knowledge and experience of the student.
This is achieved by identifying the cohort category or the student undertaking the proposed training and also the mode/s of delivery being provided.
Skill levels will vary in relation to the type of student or ‘cohort’. PYREXO TRAINING have identified 2 different types of cohorts as listed below.
- Students new to the training
- Students with previous training and/or experience similar to this course
Initial training and modes of delivery (students new to the training)
Initial training of advanced resuscitation is intended for students who have no prior training or experience. For example, job seekers, school leavers, those wanting a change in career etc. Students attending a course for the first time can complete the course in 2 ways. Either by undertaking pre-course study – referred to as unsupervised learning, and then attending a trainer led face to face course (mixed mode) or by attending a longer period of training (face to face). Where the student cohort consists of new entrants or inexperienced workers, we ensure that we give them the opportunity to fully absorb the required knowledge and to develop skills over time in the different contexts they would experience in the workplace. This may require a longer time-frame than for those students with significant training/industry experience.

Odio ut sem nulla pharetra diam sit amet. Bibendum enim facilisis gravida neque convallis a cras semper. Eu feugiat pretium nibh ipsum consequat.
Refresher training and modes of delivery (Students with previous training and/or experience)
The shorter refresher course may be appropriate for workers or students experienced in the industry or with previous training. This might be those who have been in the industry for some time (e.g. well-practiced skills), those who have previously completed this course or similar, and those returning for workplace or industry requirements and to refresh their skills etc. Meaning the student cohort for a refresher course is comprised of students who have previously attained experience in the required skills/knowledge. It’s important to identify those students who are confident and are returning for recertification. It’s about recognising their pre-existing knowledge and skills. Therefore, upon enrolment, a refresher student can supply evidence of previous certification and therefore will be given the option of completing optional unsupervised pre-course study to refresh their knowledge and the complete a face to face training session with a trainer (mixed mode or express mode). Re certification/refresher training is a competency confirmation event that includes training.
Exceptions for duration of the course
Advanced Resuscitation Course durations are reflective of group sizes of between 4 and 15 students. If there are less students in a group, you may find course duration reduced by a maximum of 10%. If a class size exceeds 15 students, it may therefore also be necessary to increase course duration depending on the number of students.
Recognition or any prior learning or previous courses
Upon enrolment, you are given the opportunity to upload your previous certificate and based on that evidence, the course can be modified based on your previous knowledge. There is a currency requirement to be able to demonstrate skills such as CPR.
Pre-course study options
If there is pre-course study for the course, it is found in the student portal. Students must have access to a computer, phone, tablet etc. with access to the internet to complete the pre-course study online.
What does competency-based training actually mean?
A competency-based training environment is centred on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.
Amount of training and the AQF volume of learning
The AQF Volume of Learning describes how long a student, who does not hold any competencies identified in the qualification, would normally take to develop all the required skills and knowledge at that qualification level. The amount of training comprises the formal learning activities that are provided to a student to enable them to meet the requirements of each training product and gain the skills and knowledge specified in the relevant training product.
We need to identify any support you require to complete this course
Upon enrolment, we will give you an opportunity to provide information on your language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete this course. There is also the opportunity to provide details and communicate any special needs or support requirements you may have. Assistance can be sought from our trainers at PYREXO TRAINING by phoning 0436 343 721.
We provide equitable access to all required educational and support services, so that no student is disadvantaged to be able to enrol into this course regardless of their mode of study or location. Students can organise to meet with their trainer on a one-to-one basis for additional support, plus email and phone contact.
It’s important to note that there is a physical requirement to complete 2 minutes of CPR on the floor with an adult resuscitation manikin and 2 minutes of CPR on a firm surface with a infant resuscitation manikin.
Unique Student Identifier (USI)
Completing any vocational education course in Australia, it is a requirement for you to obtain and supply a USI. This is obtainable from usi.gov.au If a USI is not supplied and verified with usi.gov.au a certificate cannot be issued to you.
If you are under 18 years of age
It is a requirement that parental/guardian consent is obtained for students under the age of 18 to be able to participate in a course. The form for this can be found here.
Training and assessment delivered onbehalf of Allens Training Pty Ltd RTO 90909by way of partnership arrangement. The course fee will be paid direct to the trainer (the partner organisation). This course is usually arranged by the employer of a workgroup and the employer can be invoiced for the training. If the employer does not arrange the training, or the employer does not agree to fund the training, training fees must be paid by the individual student direct to the trainer. PYREXO TRAINING will be required to meet minimum resource and facility requirements and course fees are available at the time of enrolment. Course fees will be communicated to you prior to enrolment.
