CPR for Life

PublishingPageContent

This information provides guidance to principals regarding the implementation of CPR for Life in schools.

CPR for Life in schools provides skills training in single operator adult cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), in accordance with Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines, to all Year 10 and 12 state school students.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) may be given to students for CPR training achieved through other programs where validated by the school (e.g. Queensland Ambulance Service, St John's Ambulance, Surf Life Saving Queensland or Red Cross).

CPR for Life in schools skills training does not constitute a CPR or first aid qualification for the purpose of workplace health and safety in Queensland.

Schools should consider the following when planning for your school:

  • Will the school deliver the program or will the school engage an external provider?
  • What is required to deliver the program? If relevant, consider staff training needs, instructional materials and equipment maintenance (e.g. manikins are cleaned and maintained in line with infection control guidelines and equipment supplier specifications)?
  • Are risk management processes in place to ensure appropriate controls for hygiene and injury risks are identified?
  • Are processes in place for recording student participation including RPL assessments in OneSchool?
