I have completed first aid 3 times in the last 10 years and CPR 8 times in that period...This is by far the most... outrageous fail of a course. Second page of the question's are related to maths and spelling? How this is relevant in saving lives at a First Aid or CPR level is beyond me. You need 100% to pass...

I have to say very poorly run institution. My experience with the teachers was good but their customer service and... admin services are a shambles. I was originally booked in for an Express First Aid course and it was cancelled on the morning of the course with no replacement teacher. This was annoying as the Express courses are only run once per month. I tried to book in multiple times and they said I could not. Finally I organised a full day course as you can only do the express within 12 months of the last but when I showed up I was not on the list and the teacher said he could not let me in the class. I showed him the email from Australia Wide First Aid which said that I was booked but the message had not been transferred to the teacher. The teacher was helpful and tried to call his director but there was no answer so I could not do the class even though I had paid for it. I am wondering g if anyone is actually going to follow up on this now or am I just another number. After initially being happy with the quality of their courses I now have to choose a different provider as I cannot rely on this company’s administration. I demand a refund also as that is 3 times I have not been able to do your course. Please improve the communication systems.read more

All About the Courses

First Aid refers to a set of first responses to a range of medical emergency situations.

In Australia, these medical responses are catalogued by the National Register of Vocational and Education Training as units of competencies, for which learners can earn Statements of Attainment.

At Australia Wide First Aid, we provide courses that cover these units of competencies. For example, we have a standalone unit for CPR Only, which has the course code HLTAID001.

Our most popular course — Provide First Aid — bundles together 3 of these units: HLTAID001, HLTAID002, and HLTAID003.

cpr-banner

Provide CPR HLTAID001

is a standalone course, as well as a core unit of competency in the popular Provide First Aid HLTAID003 course.

Provide CPR HLTAID001 covers the theory and practice needed to provide an immediate response to a breathing or cardiac emergency.

CPR technique combines chest compressions and artificial ventilation to return the flow of oxygenated blood to major organs when a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

When you’re trained in the use of this lifesaving procedure, you’ll be capable of potentially preventing a casualty from dying or suffering permanent brain damage due to oxygen deprivation.

What You Can Learn in First Aid Training

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

AED and CPR training

You’ll know what to do when the person has stopped breathing.

CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer. You’ll also learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED).

Timely use of an AED has saved countless lives. This device is the heart-starter paramedics use to shock a person undergoing cardiac arrest.

We also cover providing CPR in the uncertain times we find ourselves in, thanks to Covid-19. This includes the use of masks in emergency medical intervention, including CPR.

Treating Wounds

Wound care is another important facet of your learning. 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 emergency medical management for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.

Breathing and Choking

Checking the breathing of a casualty, clearing the airway if called for, are of vital importance. You’ll learn what to do when a person is choking, be they infant or adult. You’ll also learn the appropriate ways to manage an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.

Poisons

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 First Aid course will have you ready to respond in the event of an unexpected medical emergency — from fainting to epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. You’ll be able to think quickly and act confidently to help avert 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 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

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

We make it our priority to provide access to accredited training —for individuals, as well as group classes. The group classes can be held at your site, which means the training can be customised to suit your specific environment.

Our industry-experienced, fully certified trainers are available in and around Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.

First Aid Training Simplified

Our streamlined courses blend online e-Learning with a minimum of face-to-face training.

You choose the time and place for your practical assessment. As the days click over, toward your scheduled face-to-face session, completing the theory component can be done online and at your convenience.

You get immediate access to your course e-Book when you enrol. It’s full of important information and well-explained from start to finish, however, only a portion of the manual might be needed for your e-Learning questionnaire, depending on the course you selected.

Answering True or False and checking off the correct multiple-choice answers is simple with your eBook by your side to reference while doing your e-Learning.

You get as many attempts as you need to arrive at the correct answer. Pause to consider why a particular answer is correct and your understanding will be clear.

e-Learning plus Face-toFace

Your e-Learning assessment needs to be completed and submitted before you can attend your face-to-face training. Regulations require it to be done this way.

Our tip is to start sooner rather than later.

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

Sooner rather than later also applies to turning up for class. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early with time to spare — relaxed, not rushed off your feet.

Late-comers miss out. Aside from classes being run like clockwork, we also respect the time constraints most of us are under.

Also, like clockwork, your First Aid certificate will be emailed to you shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes. Same-day certification!

Your Australia Wide First Aid certificate will be recognised the length and breadth of Australia. You’ll be ready for workplace compliance, career advancement, and saving lives.

How Long Does a First Aid Certificate Last?

In time, your certificate will need to be renewed. For example, HLTAID001 CPR should be renewed annually. The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years, although the CPR component needs the annual refresher.

Renewing and updating your certificate simply aligns your skills with the latest training methodology.

How You Benefit From Our Melbourne First Aid Course

Once your Emergency First Aid training is complete, you’ll have skills that often mean the difference between life and death for a person in need of help.

Considering there are almost 8 million admissions to Australian public hospital emergency departments every year, accidents and illnesses are all too frequent. Asthma, anaphylactic shock, heart attacks, respiratory failure, snake bite… the list goes on.

Empowering

First Aid expertise is empowering. It enables you to step up and confidently manage emergencies in both the workplace and at home.

Your quick response can help improve the chances of survival for someone in need. The likelihood of them suffering dangerous complications and even life-long problems caused by injury or illness can be effectively diminished.

You’ll be equipping yourself with critical skills and knowledge. You’ll be able to render efficient and effective care that can preserve life and also quality of life.

Along with providing hands-on help, your presence in a First Aid capacity will be reassuring to the casualty as well as for concerned bystanders.

When the ambulance arrives, your management of the medical situation will be relieved, however, your training will allow you to provide a proper handover.

Your First Aid certification will have you well-prepared for the workforce. Employers respect those who can exhibit clear thinking and an ability to take confident action in emergency situations.

Contribute to Your Community

You can help ensure the safety and wellbeing of our communities.

Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the world, with iconic landmarks, such as St Kilda Beach and Federation Square. It’s a city known for its vibrant art and music scene, and a thriving coffee and dining culture.

But even in Melbourne, accidents happen.

Recent statistics shed light on the fact that fewer than 5% of Australians are prepared for emergency situations, or know how to manage emergency First Aid response. All the more reason you should not hesitate for a moment when it comes to learning First Aid!

First-Aid-11

What Do I Need to Get First Aid Qualified?

To become a qualified First Aider, you must first obtain a Statement of Attainment for specific units of competencies from a nationally recognised training organisation, such as Australia Wide First Aid.

To attend any First Aid course with Australia Wide First Aid, the requirements for prospective students are few and simple. You must be at least 14 years of age. If you’re under 18, you’ll need prior signed consent from a parent or guardian.

For First Aid classes that involve cardiopulmonary resuscitation, you would need to be physically capable of carrying out 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR while kneeling on the floor.

Business Owners

Businesses and organisations should conduct a thorough assessment of hazards in their workplace and gain an understanding of their legal obligations.

This will enable them to decide how many of their workers need a First Aid certificate and which First Aid courses to book.

What Is First Aid?

First Aid can be defined as the emergency management of a person’s injury or illness until advanced First Aid, or professional medical help becomes available.

First Aid is often carried out in order to alleviate pain or discomfort. It can also be given to prevent a person’s condition from deteriorating further until they’re in the hands of medical professionals.

Most importantly, First Aid is given to preserve life. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, for example — a manual intervention which supplies the casualty’s brain and major organs with oxygenated blood — can be performed on someone whose heartbeat or breathing has stopped.
