The HLTAID competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide first aid 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 resuscitation manikin placed on the floor and 8 minutes for the advanced units of competency.
Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.
SureFire Tactical Pty Ltd are unable to make adjustments to these requirements even if the qualification is a necessary part of the learner’s employment conditions.
If you feel you will be unable to meet the physical requirements, please contact us prior to training on 0447 762 074 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the options available to you.
