ARC resuscitation courses and COVID-19

As the restrictions introduced to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic reduce, resuscitation training courses may be reintroduced. The ARC recommends course centres complete a risk assessment for all courses and follow National, State/Territorial and local Health and Safety, Infection Control and Occupational Safety requirements to safely facilitate courses.

COVID-19 Impact on First Aid and Resuscitation Training

The ARC recommends that the teaching of routine first aid and resuscitation courses should be postponed until the current COVID-19 pandemic has abated and expert consensus opinion is that there is no longer an unnecessary risk involved in participating in a course.

The ARC recommends that the requirement for resuscitation training and re-certification be considered in the light of the current concerns.

The ARC will be regularly reviewing this recommendation.

Who is the Australian Resuscitation Council?

The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary co-ordinating body which represents all major groups involved in the teaching and practice of resuscitation.  The Australian Resuscitation Council is sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are produced after consideration of all available scientific and published material and are only issued after acceptance by all member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods other than those recommended are ineffective. It is the policy of the Australian Resuscitation Council to respect the autonomy of member organisations.
