The First Aider's legal responsibilities will be discussed. You'll also learn the all-important DRSABCD first aid strategy.

Depending on your learning ability, you should allow up to 2.5 hours for reading and e-Learning. Face-to-face training and assessment takes 2 hours in a classroom environment.

Your nationally recognised CPR certification — emailed to you the same day as course completion – officially recognises your ability to respond effectively to cardiac and breathing-related emergencies.

Don’t hesitate to enrol in this course and find out how good it feels to have the skills to save lives.

By far our most popular course, Provide First Aid is a requirement for workplace first aid compliance.

Previously known as Apply First Aid and Senior First Aid, this course includes 4 jam-packed hours of face-to-face training, preceded by highly informative e-Learning that has been streamlined for accelerated certification.

You'll learn first aid management of casualty(ies), the incident and other first aiders, until qualified emergency help arrives to take over.

Depending on your learning ability, you should allow up to 6 hours for reading and e-Learning. Face-to-face training and assessment takes 4 hours in a classroom environment.

Your certificate — HLTAID011 Provide First Aid PDF Statement of Attainment – will be emailed to you the same day you complete your course.

You’ll learn to properly assess emergency situations, in addition to CPR techniques that apply to infants, children, and adults.

The course covers the knowledge and skills required to respond to first aid emergencies, including asthmatic and anaphylactic emergencies.

The training is in accordance with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines and may contribute towards approved first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis training requirements defined by Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

Depending on your learning ability, you should allow up to 6 hours for reading and e-Learning. You’ll gain further valuable information in 5 hours of streamlined face-to-face training and assessment in a classroom environment.

What is first aid?

In the event of injury, illness, or medical emergency, conducting first aid has 3 major goals: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery.

First aid knowledge and skills can save lives, alleviate the pain experienced by the patient, and reduce the time needed to recover from the injury or illness.

First aid is not limited to providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). A first aid course covers many subjects, including the proper use of various first aid tools and techniques, learning the appropriate response to different types of medical emergencies, and how to prevent and address workplace-specific injuries.

practicing CPR in a course

What are the key benefits of learning first aid?

There are many personal and professional benefits of learning first aid. Learning first aid allows you to identify dangers in your home or workplace and take steps to reduce the risks they pose.

Most injuries and illnesses take place at home or at work, and knowing first aid skills and techniques allows you to help people — family, colleagues, or even strangers — in the event of a medical emergency.

What’s more, knowing first aid can improve your employability in many industries and workplace settings. Taking a first aid class can also earn you points for Continuing Professional Development.
