On successful completion of the Immunisation Update course, students will receive an emailed Statement of Attainment for HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation as well as a Statement of Participation for the Nurse Immuniser Update. Both certificates will be valid for 1 year from the course completion date. 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 a 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. Therefore, students who are unable to satisfy the physical requirements of the course cannot be deemed competent or issued with a statement of attainment, even if the qualification is a necessary part of their employment conditions.
