Don’t hesitate to enrol in this course to know how good it feels to have the skills to save lives.
By far our most popular first aid 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.
This in-demand course teaches first aid response, life support, treatment for stings, bites, asthma, anaphylaxis, management of casualties, and more.
This is the course for parents of young children, as well as those interested in childcare and education work.
With its focus on First Aid for infantsand children, this course also covers first aid management of medical conditions and injuries of all types.
You’ll learn to properly assess emergency situations, in addition to CPR techniques that apply to infants, children, and adults.
After completing your e-Learning beforehand, you’ll gain further valuable information in face-to-face training. Students are unanimous in saying this fascinating 5 hour session is empowering and a highly enjoyable way to gain certification in Child Care First Aid.
What You’ll Learn in Your First Aid Course
You’ll be taught a wide range of skills when you learn First Aid. The most crucial of these is learning how to respond to an injured or ill person in an emergency.
AED and CPR training
You’ll learn what to do when a person has stopped breathing. In many emergency situations, CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer. It is of such vital importance, it’s a wonder learning it isn’t part of every school-kid’s education.
You’ll also learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This is the heart-starter that paramedics regularly use to deliver a shock to a person undergoing cardiac arrest.
Treating wounds and bodily injuries
You’ll also learn another important facet of First Aid — wound care. Cuts, sprains, burns and bites all need correct bandaging. Along with techniques to manage injury to bones, muscles and joints, you’ll be shown the best treatment for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.
Breathing and choking emergencies
There are First Aid techniques for checking the breathing of a casualty and clearing the airway if called for. You’ll learn those techniques, as well as what to do when someone is choking, from infants to adults. You’ll understand and be able to provide First Aid responses that are appropriate for managing an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.
Knowing how to deliver First Aid to a person who has been poisoned is a critical aspect of your training. You’ll learn how to safely treat a victim who has been poisoned whether the toxin was inhaled, ingested, or injected by needle or fang.
Unexpected medical emergencies
Your First Aid course will also prepare you for responding to unexpected medical emergencies — from epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. Your training will allow you to think quickly and act confidently. You’ll be ready to make decisions and take steps that will help avoid disastrous outcomes.
Emergencies can occur in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. But with your First Aid training, you’ll be able to take the kind of action that saves lives.
Our First Aid classes teach you not only appropriate emergency responses, but also what to look for, and how to stay safe yourself.
On a day-to-day level, your First Aid training will strengthen your resolve, lift your attitude, and enhance your career.
How Australia Wide First Aid Delivers
Our First Aid training is COVID-safe. Hygiene and social distancing are maintained at all times.
We provide one-on-one, as well as group First Aid classes. The group classes can be held at your site, which means that the First Aid training can be customised to suit your specific environment.
Our industry-experienced, fully certified trainers are available in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.
First Aid Training Simplified
We make it our priority to not only provide access to accredited First Aid training, but also to blend online e-Learning with the minimum of face-to-face training.
From the outset, you choose the time and place for your practical assessment. And while the days click over until your scheduled face-to-face session, you simply complete the theory component online and at your convenience.
Once you book your course, you’ll have immediate online access to a PDF First Aid manual. You’ll find it full of important information and well-explained from start to finish.
However, depending on the course you selected, only a portion of the manual might be needed for your e-Learning questionnaire.
If you’re running short on time, you can simply refer to the manual as you’re answering the questionnaire. You can have as many attempts as you need to choose True or False, check the correct multiple-choice answers, and complete the handful of drag-and-drop puzzles.
If it takes a few attempts to arrive at the correct answer, it pays to consider why it’s correct. That way, you’ll gain a better insight into First Aid.
You have until 11:59pm the night before your face-to-face First Aid class to submit your e-Learning assessment. Of course, it’s better if you get started sooner rather than later.
Our trainers keep things light-hearted and entertaining in class. You’ll enjoy it more if you’re not sleep-deprived! And you want to arrive with time to spare, relaxed.
Your First Aid Course Completed
Completing your First Aid class is not a difficult process. We make sure it runs like clockwork because we appreciate the time constraints most of us are under.
Your First Aid certificate will be emailed to you, like clockwork too, shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes. Same-day certification!
You’ll be pleased to know that your First Aid certificate from Australia Wide First Aid will be recognised the length and breadth of Australia. You’ll be ready for career advancement, workplace compliance, as well as saving lives.
In time, your First Aid certificate will need a refresher. For example, HLTAID001 CPR needs to be renewed annually, including the CPR component within HLTAID003 Provide First Aid, the balance of which needs a refresher course only after 3 years. This is simply so First Aiders can align their skills with updated training methodology.
What Are the Benefits of Learning First Aid?
Becoming a certified first aider is empowering. As a result, you could be in the frontline in a medical emergency and potentially save the life of a friend, a loved one, or someone who will always be grateful.
First aid skills and knowledge are invaluable when you can help someone who is in delicate health.
You may not be able to predict when misfortune might strike, but you can have the foresight to learn how to respond in an emergency.
You’ll be a much-needed asset for your employer and to your work colleagues, as well as a capable guardian to your family and friends.
What you’ve learned can even apply to your own personal situation, enabling you to remain calm if you are injured or stricken by illness yourself.
A first aid certificate will also boost your employment prospects. In many lines of work, accredited first aid certification is a prerequisite.
Certification with Australia Wide First Aid is also ideal for your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
The benefits of an accredited first aid training course truly add up. Don’t hesitate to enrol.
