– also known as Level 2 First Aid or Senior First Aid, and soon to become HLTAID011, this is our most popular course. It is a staple for workplace compliance. Describing the comprehensive scope of this course is like explaining the entire contents of a quality First Aid kit.

Provide CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) -HLTAID001

– CPR is a life-saver for cardiac arrest victims and others who have been deprived of life-giving oxygen. This course is not to be confused with Level 1 First Aid (HLTAID002 Basic Emergency Life Support), which is part of Provide First Aid HLTAID003 and Emergency First Aid HLTAID004.

Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting – HLTAID004

– also known as Child Care First Aid, this course is a career requirement for many people, and a compelling choice for concerned parents.

Provide CPR puts essental life-saving skills well within your reach, in very short time.

Provide First Aid and Child Care First Aid are popular and comprehensive First Aid courses, ideal for career advancement. Combining more advanced First Aid including CPR, these courses involve more e-Learning and a half-day of face-to-face training.

What a poor customer experience.I had selected this first aid provider because they runs courses that suits my busy... schedule.Today I went to refresh my CPR. Upon arrival I was embarrassingly turned away for not completing the pre course work. I had not received any emails from the organisation before my booked class and was therefore unable to do this. I was then directed to call the customer service line and told the operator on the other line my circumstances.I was offered a rebooking for the next day however due to my work schedule I would not be able to accept. I tried explaining this to the customer service operator. The operator then affirmed the providers inflexibility to individuals on a case by case circumstances. I asked about refund options again the operator refused this request and stated that I would need to rebook.I found this whole process humiliating and am disappointed by Australia Wide First Aid’s lack of empathy and inflexibility. I would not recommend this RTO to anyone.read more

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... DON'T TAKE THIS COURSE I walked out of the courseread more

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

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.

Australia Wide First Aid – Melbourne specialises in 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.
