FAQ

ACECQA (Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority) has developed the National Quality Framework (NQF).

This framework defines national regulations for first aid qualifications, anaphylaxis management training, and emergency asthma management training.

For centres where children are being educated and cared for, qualified people must always be in attendance in case of emergency.

At least one staff member or one nominated supervisor of the service needs to:

  • hold current approved first aid qualification
  • have undertaken current approved anaphylaxis management training
  • have undertaken current approved emergency asthma management training.

For School-based services, qualified personnel must be in attendance and immediately available at the site in case of emergency.

At least one staff member or one nominated supervisor of the service must:

  • current approved first aid qualification
  • have undertaken current approved anaphylaxis management training
  • have undertaken current approved emergency asthma management training.

For Family day care services, the approved provider of the service needs to ensure that its educators and educator assistants:

  • hold current approved first aid qualification
  • have undertaken current approved anaphylaxis management training
  • have undertaken current approved emergency asthma management training.

Each family day care educator and educator assistant must hold all 3 qualifications.

Emergency First Response training can build your confidence and increase your willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency.

First responders have specialised training and are able to provide assistance at the scene of a medical emergency that is within their scope of training.

A First Aider or certified First Responder is trained to recognise, respond, and manage a medical emergency until professional help arrives.

These emergency first response efforts aim to provide the patient with the best chance of survival after severe injury or life-threatening medical conditions, such as anaphylaxis.

First responders provide assistance and monitor the patient until help arrives. The care provided varies with each medical emergency but may include bandaging injuries, providing assurance to patient, or performing CPR.

To become a first aid trainer in Australia you would need to have an entry-level teaching qualification.

The delivery of nationally accredited training and assessment in Australia is defined within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

The qualification you need to deliver and assess vocational qualifications is TAE40116 Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment, or TAE40110 Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment, with the following 2 units: TAELLN411 (or TAELLN401A) and TAEASS502 (or TAEASS502A / TAEASS502B).

Having established your competence as a trainer, you'd also need your qualification to be paired with related experience.

Level 4 First Aid comes under the training code, HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting.

This certification includes units of competency for childcare workers, educators, and support staff who work within educational and care settings.

The aim of Level 4 First Aid is to enable qualified staff to respond to a first aid emergency, including asthmatic and anaphylaxis treatment for emergencies in infants, children and adults.

Professional Development and Accreditation

Current CPR First Aid certification is often a requirement for employment or a condition for professional registration.

It is also recognised as a credit in continuing professional development. If you have any questions about first aid certification and your profession, please call our friendly team on 07 3437 7500

People Also Ask

First aid course assessment involves practical demonstration of CPR. This demonstration requires access to a manikin. Because of this requirement, it would be unlikely that an online first aid course is an accredited course.

Non-accredited courses are not recognised as official training and assessment and therefore cannot be used as certification for employment or study purposes.
