Good value for money if you simply need to refresh your First Aid/CPR and remember your previous training. Instructor... was very bubbly and friendly, however, I would not recommend this for a first timer as the teaching was poorly structured and at times hard to follow.read more

Available First Aid Courses in Sydney

The following First Aid courses are now available at our Sydney training centre:

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

HLTAID001 – Provide Cardipulmonary Resuscitation

CPR is an emergency response technique that combines chest compressions and artificial ventilation. It is used to return the flow of oxygenated blood to major organs after a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends that this certification is renewed annually to stay abreast of changes and to keep the skills fresh.

HLTAID003 – Provide First Aid

This is the most popular unit of First Aid training competency, particularly for community and workplace settings.

In Provide First Aid, you learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including management of vomiting, airway obstruction and choking, care for an unconscious breathing casualty, and appropriate use of an AED (automated external defibrillator).

You will learn other First Aid techniques, such as managing fractures and sprains, treating bites and stings including the use of the pressure immobilisation technique (PIT).

You’ll also learn how to provide an appropriate emergency response for allergy and anaphylaxis, asthma and respiratory distress, control of bleeding, and shock management.

HLTAID004 – Child Care First Aid

This Emergency First Aid course is a requirement if you intend to work in the childcare sector. It’s also of particular interest to parents of young children.

Covering the same units as Provide CPR and Provide First Aid, this course has an added focus on First Aid applied to infants and children.

With a total face-to-face training duration of 5 hours plus pre-course reading and online assessment, in this course, you’ll learn CPR techniques that apply to infants and children, as well as adults.

You’ll also learn how to assess emergency situations, provide First Aid for various types of injuries, and manage medical conditions.

Includes: Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (HLTAID001), Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002), Provide First Aid (HLTAID003), and Provide an Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting (HLTAID004).

What Is First Aid?

First Aid refers to the administration of immediate care to an ill or injured individual until professional medical help arrives.

First Aid skills can serve the purpose of treating a minor condition, such as dressing a small wound. In more serious cases, however, First Aid is provided as preliminary care until such time the sick or injured person is attended to by emergency and medical professionals.

First Aid is typically given in order to prevent a condition from getting worse, to provide comfort, to quicken the recovery of an affected individual, and to preserve life. Saving lives is particularly true for First Aid techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

What You’ll Learn in Your First Aid Course

With Australia Wide First Aid, you’ll learn a wide range of skills. Most importantly, you’ll learn what it takes to act quickly and decisively in an emergency situation in order to help an injured or ill person.

First Aid is typically given in order to prevent a condition from getting worse, to provide comfort, to quicken the recovery of an affected individual, and to preserve life. Saving lives is particularly true for First Aid techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

AED and CPR training

You’ll know what to do when a person has stopped breathing. CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer in many emergency situations. It’s a wonder learning it isn’t part of every school-kid’s education.

You’ll learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This is the heart-starter paramedics use to shock a person undergoing cardiac arrest. Timely use of an AED has saved countless lives.

Treating Wounds

Wound care is another important facet of First Aid. You’ll learn correct bandaging techniques to manage cuts, sprains, burns and bites, as well as injuries to bones, muscles and joints. You’ll also be shown recommended First Responder management for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.

Breathing and Choking

Checking the breathing of a casualty and clearing the airway if called for, are important First Aid techniques. When a person is choking — be they infant or adult — you’ll know what should be done. You’ll also learn the appropriate ways to manage an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.


You’ll learn how to safely treat a person who has been poisoned, whether the toxin was inhaled, ingested,  or injected by needle or fang.

Unexpected medical emergencies

Your course will have you ready to respond if there’s an unexpected medical emergency — from fainting to epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. Your training will allow you to think quickly, act confidently, and take steps to help avoid disastrous outcomes.

Emergencies can happen in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. With your training, you’ll be ready for the kind of action that saves lives.

Our First Aid courses teach you not only appropriate emergency responses, but also what to look for, and how to stay safe yourself.

Australia Wide First Aid Delivers

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 Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.

Our training is COVID-safe. Hygiene and social distancing are maintained at all times.

First Aid Training Simplified

We not only provide accredited training, we also streamline our courses by blending online e-Learning with a minimum of face-to-face training.

You choose the time and place for your practical assessment. Leading up to your scheduled face-to-face session, you simply complete the theory component — online and at your convenience.

Once you enrol, you get immediate online access to a PDF First Aid eBook. You’ll find it full of information and well-explained from start to finish.

Depending on the course you selected, you might only need to study a portion of your eBook for your e-Learning questionnaire.

Using the eBook as a reference, you’ll find checking off the correct multiple-choice and True or False answers will not be difficult.

You get as many attempts as you need to arrive at the correct answer. Of course, it pays to consider why it’s correct so that your understanding of First Aid will be clear.

e-Learning plus Face-toFace

You need to submit your e-Learning assessment before you can attend your face-to-face First Aid class.

You have until 11:59pm the night before. But you’ll enjoy the face-to-face session more if you’re not sleep-deprived!

It’s better you get started sooner rather than later. You want to arrive for class with time to spare — relaxed, not rushed off your feet.

We respect the time constraints most of us are under and, for that reason, your First Aid class will be run like clockwork.

And like clockwork, your certificate will be emailed to you, shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes, same-day certification!

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, you will need a refresher course to keep your certification up-to-date. For example, HLTAID001 CPR needs to be renewed annually. The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years, although the CPR component needs the annual refresher.

Renewing your certification will align your skills with updated First Aid methodology.

The Benefits of Learning First Aid in Sydney

Learning First Aid in Sydney — or anywhere else for that matter — is to learn a vital skill that may just save someone’s life. But the benefits of learning First Aid don’t end at saving lives…

Providing First Aid without delay helps determine the progress of the person’s recovery. If, on the other hand, First Aid is not administered immediately, the health of a casualty can deteriorate rapidly.

Many people who unfortunately did not receive First Aid soon enough, have suffered long-term or even life-long disabilities. First Aid can make all the difference.

By enrolling in a First Aid Course, you’ll be learning vital knowledge and skills that could help preserve someone’s quality of life.

High quality First Aid training underpins safe and healthy communities. When people know First Aid, they look out for one another and, when it comes to dealing with situations involving medical emergencies, they do not shy away.

Do not hesitate if you’re contemplating getting First Aid Training for yourself or for your organisation.

Call Australia Wide First Aid on 1300 336 613 or go to our contact page and send us a message. One of our friendly team will be happy to assist.
