UETDRRF004 Perform rescue from a live LV panel
(Also known as Low Voltage Rescue with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – or LVR with CPR)
If your professional role involves working with live, low voltage switchboards, then knowing how to help someone being electrocuted and perform a low voltage rescue (or LVR) is an essential workplace skill. The UETDRRF004 Perform rescue from a live LV panel course is specifically designed to provide all the skills and knowledge needed for just such an emergency – how to save someone’s life without putting your own at risk.
The course covers standard health and safety requirements for both workers and managers, and the requirements for LV rescue and how they apply in different roles.
The course includes the following units as part of the qualification – both of which the student will be certified in upon successfully completing the course.
- UETDRRF004 Perform rescue from a live LV panel
- HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation
FirstAidPro is committed to your health and safety. As such, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are careful to follow best practice Covid-safe procedures at all our training. Please respect the other people on your course by following the trainer’s instructions regarding wearing PPE (such as masks) and infection control measures. Also, we ask participants not to come if they’re unwell or experiencing any flu-like symptoms. If that’s the case, you can contact us to reschedule your training at no additional charge. If you need more information on these measures, simply contact us for more details.
LVR/CPR Course Delivery
4 Hour Face-to-Face Training & Assessment
The Perform a Rescue from Live LV Panel course is a hands-on course requiring practical training that needs to be delivered in a face-to-face training context. The course is delivered as a 4 hour, half-day seminar at one of our many training facilities. The knowledge and practical skills required for certification are taught and assessed as part of that seminar, meaning students will be fully certified as soon as they’ve successfully completed the half-day course.
The training will be delivered and assessed through a variety of different methods, including:
- Practical Demonstrations: Simulated scenarios/Roleplaying
- Project (Incident Report)
- Knowledge Assessment
No Online Workbook or E-learning Required
Many people find the idea of E-learning (working through an online workbook with automated assessments) a little intimidating. While FirstAidPro’s UETDRRF004 training does include some pre-reading, students can work through this content at their own pace and in their own time. You just need to complete the pre-course quiz (based on that pre-reading) provided with your training materials and bring it to the session with you.
The time required to work through this material will vary from person to person, but you are free to work at the pace you feel comfortable. The pre-reading is essential though, as the information it contains will be assumed knowledge during the training.
While there are no specific qualifications needed to participate in the UETDRRF004 course, there are some basic physical and educational requirements. Participants will need to…
- Be 14 years of age or older
- Show written consent from a parent or guardian if under eighteen
- Prepare verbal incident reports or provide information to enable preparation of an incident report (e.g. first aid report)
- Communicate effectively and assertively in an incident (e.g. give a casualty handover)
- Use literacy and numeracy skills as require reading, interpret and apply guidelines and protocols (e.g. read and follow ARC guidelines)
- Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles of both compression and breaths) on an adult manikin placed on the floor
- Perform at least 2 minutes of interrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles of both compression) on an infant manikin placed on the firm surface
Our UETDRRF004 Perform rescue from a live LV panel training is available from a wide variety of our training venues – we’re a national RTO with training venues in most capital cities and many regional centres. We run training seven days a week (so Saturdays and Sundays are an option), with various starting times on offer. Check our calendar for UETDRRF004 training times at your nearest venue.
FirstAidPro places a high priority on outstanding customer service and high quality, professional training. We work very hard to ensure all students are issued with their UETDRRF004 Perform rescue from a live LV panel and HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation certificates within 24 hours of their completion of the course – within the same calendar day when possible.
To make this possible, you must provide us with both a valid USI number (Unique Student Identifier) and your completed pre-reading quiz, as these are required for official certification.
Our certificates are issued electronically, meaning you have a permanent digital copy available that you can be print whenever you need. Should you require it, we can also provide printed hard copies of your certificates for only $12 – postage included.
Both the UETDRRF004 and HLTAID009 certificates are valid for a total of 12 months. To remain current in these qualifications, you should aim to complete a refresher course on this training every year.
Since January 2018, anyone taking part in a nationally recognised training course is required to have a Unique Student Identifier or USI number. This number is unique to you – rather like a tax file number – and tracks all the government accredited training you have completed. Although you need to apply for your own USI (FirstAidPro can’t do that for you), it only takes about 5 minutes to apply and you only need to do it once – you keep the same number for life.
If you’re currently studying at college or university, it’s quite likely you already have a number.
Knowledge Evidence (LVR)
In order to comply with the guidelines of the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and all relevant government regulations and first aid codes of practice, our UETDRRF004 training participants must demonstrate their understanding of the following.

- Inspection of rescue equipment
- Assessing hazards to rescuer, victim and others
- Isolation procedures, where appropriate
- Safe approach distances SAD appropriate to rescue from a live LV panel
- Involvement of external emergency services
- Placement of rescue equipment
- Controlling hazards to rescuer, victim and others
- Maintaining SAD appropriate to rescue from a live LV panel
Performance Evidence (LVR)
As part of a low voltage rescue training, participants must also demonstrate their skills in the following practical first aid tasks.
- Applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including the use of risk control measures
- Inspecting and placing rescue equipment
- Identifying and labelling the isolation point
Knowledge Evidence (CPR)
