Low Voltage Rescue
Course Cost: $100.00
This course is suitable for workers who are required to maintain skill levels in low voltage rescue procedures as part of their duties working on or near electrical equipment, such as electricians and crane technicians.
The course is also suitable for the general public, organisations and corporate clients and will provide participants with the knowledge to confidently provide CPR and use low voltage rescue equipment to rescue a person from low voltage conductors and equipment.
This course can be contextualised to suit your specific requirements.
Statement of Attainment:
- UETTDRRF06B - Perform rescue from a live LV panel
- HLTAID001 - Provide CPR
Recommended refresher every 12 months
The course is nationally recognised through inclusion on the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF). Workplace Approved throughout Australia.
Suitable for persons working in any industry where low voltage rescue procedures are a part of their duties.
It is recommended that students have sufficient literacy, numeracy and visual interpretation skills to successfully complete the course.
There is no pre-requisite for this unit. Recommended for students over 14yrs only.
It is important to note that the HLTAID competency standards do require a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life.
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.
