Free Online Program CPR Training for Parents

If your child stopped breathing today, would you know what to do?

The Children's Hospital at Westmead has developed a free online program, ‘CPR Training for Parents,’ to teach the steps involved in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) for a baby (aged less than 12 months) or a child (aged over one year). These steps can also be used on an adult.

The content is taken directly from the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines. The DRS ABCD approach for an unresponsive baby and child used in this program is an international approach designed to help people remember the steps involved in responding to a collapsed person.

The program does not require you to login and takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete. Although it can be completed over multiple sessions, we recommend completing each module from start to finish, as your progress will not be recorded.

The knowledge and skills you learn in this program may SAVE a LIFE. Remember, ANY attempt at CPR is better than no attempt.
