low voltage rescue

“Sometimes Referred to as LVR (Low Voltage Rescue) with CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)”

Perform a Rescue from Live LV Panel

The Low Voltage Rescue training course is essential if you perform live work or work with (LV) live switchboards. The course includes the performance of rescue procedures from a live Low Voltage (LV) apparatus.

It outlines the mandatory requirements of rescue from a live LV panel and how they apply in the context of transmission, distribution, or rail work functions. It encompasses responsibilities for health, safety and risk management processes at all operative levels and adherence to safety practices as part of the normal way of doing work.

Units Includes:

LVR/CPR Course Delivery

4 Hour Face-to-Face Training & Assessment

The Perform a Rescue from Live LV Panel course is taught face to face for four hours in the classroom and includes required knowledge and practical training.

All learners will be assessed through a combination of the following assessment methods:

  • Practical Demonstrations: Simulated scenarios/Roleplaying
  • Project (Incident Report)
  • Knowledge Assessment

No Online Workbook or E-learning Required

Plus, for ease and convenience, FirstAidPro try to minimise the stress of any online learning. So, whilst we do have mandatory pre-course reading requirements, it is self-paced and self-directed. Prior to attending the course, you need to complete a quiz and bring it to the session to prove completion. The actual number of study hours required for each learner to complete the pre-reading and the quiz varies depending on the learners existing knowledge, skills and experience.

Course Requirements

  • Participants must be 14 years of age (those who are under 18 must present an enrolment form from a parent or guardian to accept responsibility
  • 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

Course Fees

$99 (Prices may vary)

Course Times

Our LVR and CPR Courses run frequently in many locations, 7 days week from, starting times vary please check the calendar.

LVR/CPR Certificate

FirstAidPro prides itself on offering high-quality training and excellent customer service. To that end, we go to great lengths to ensure that all candidates who successfully complete the UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel course and HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation are issued with their fully nationally accredited certificate on the same day or within 24 hours of completing their training. 

In order to issue the certification, you will need to have completed the prior reading and associated quiz and have provided your USI (Unique Student Identifier) number; see below for more information. USI numbers must be supplied prior to the completion of the training course.

Certificates are issued electronically and sent to the email address you use when registering for the course. Paper copies of the certificate are available for an additional fee of $12.00, which includes postage.

It is recommended that refresher training is completed annually.

USI Requirements

In line with new government regulations, from January 1, 2018, all students undertaking a nationally recognised training course need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). USI’s only need to be created once and the number generated is yours for life. So, if you are already studying at college or university, it is likely that you may already have a USI that you can use. Applications for a USI take less than 5 minutes and can be completed HERE.
