HLTAID007 – Provide Advanced Resuscitation Techniques

Assessment Advanced Resuscitation has both practical and theoretical elements, where participants demonstrate procedures of techniques used and exhibit the necessary knowledge on administering advanced resuscitation techniques in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines and the Health Training Package. Alternative assessments can be made (eg. Oral).
