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 more

Types of Emergency First Aid Training

When people talk about First Aid, they are referring to a set of first responses that could be performed in a range of medical emergency situations.

In Australia, these different types of 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 First Aid courses that cover these units of competencies, sometimes as a standalone unit, e.g. 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.


HLTAID001 – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – the Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (HLTAID001) unit of competency is a lifesaving procedure, helpful in many types of emergencies, including cases of cardiac arrest and near drowning. By combining chest compressions and breaths, an individual trained in CPR can prevent a casualty from dying or suffering permanent brain damage due to being deprived of oxygenated blood.

Provide First Aid

HLTAID003 – Provide First Aid – a unit of competency, formerly known in Australia as Apply First Aid or Senior First Aid. This comprehensive training teaches you the skills and knowledge needed to provide appropriate First Aid response, life support, and casualty management in your home, your place of work, or out in the community. Aside from basic life support (DRSABCD), you’ll learn First Aid techniques such as how to manage fractures, sprains, and strains, as well as emergency First Aid management for allergies, anaphylaxis, envenomation, bleeding, choking, and airway obstruction.

Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting

HLTAID004 – Childcare First Aid – a First Aid unit of competency specifically designed for teachers and carers, Provide an Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting (HLTAID004) is also popular with parents. You’ll learn how to deliver First Aid response and basic life support, and benefit from the child-focused training in this course’s incident and casualty management.

What You Can Learn in Your First Aid Course

With Australia Wide First Aid, you’ll learn a wide range of First Aid 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.

AED and CPR training

You’ll know what to do when the 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 Aid 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. You’ll learn how, as well as what to do when a person is choking, be they infant or adult. You’ll also learn the appropriate ways to provide First Aid for managing 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 First Aid course will also 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 and act confidently. You’ll be able to take steps to help avoid disastrous outcomes.

Emergencies can happen in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. With your First Aid training, you’ll be ready for 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.

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, not only to provide access to accredited First Aid training, but also to streamline First Aid courses by blending online e-Learning with a minimum of face-to-face training.

You choose the time and place for your practical assessment. And while the days are clicking over, up to your scheduled face-to-face session, you can complete the theory component — online and at your convenience.

Once you book your course, you get immediate online access to a PDF First Aid manual. You’ll find it full of 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, simply use the manual as a reference to help you answer True or False or check off the correct multiple-choice answers.

If it takes you a few goes to arrive at the correct answer— you get as many attempts as you need — it would pay to consider why it’s correct. That way, you’re understanding of First Aid will also be correct.

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.

Your First Aid class will be run like clockwork because we appreciate the time constraints most of us are under.

And, like clockwork, your First Aid 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, your First Aid certificate is going to need a refresher. 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 First Aid certificates  is simply so you can align your skills with updated training methodology.

How You Benefit From Our Melbourne First Aid Course

Your First Aid training in Melbourne with Australia Wide First Aid can be done more easily because of its flexible blend of online and face-to-face delivery.

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.

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.

When you learn First Aid, you’re equipping yourself with critical skills and knowledge. You’ll be able to render efficient and effective care — including how to manage asthma and anaphylaxis — that can preserve life and also quality of life.

Along with being incredibly helpful, your presence in a First Aid capacity will be reassuring. Your management of more serious medical situations will be relieved when the ambulance arrives. And your training will allow you to provide a proper handover.

Your First Aid certification, skills and knowledge, will have you well-prepared for the workforce. Employers will respect your clear thinking and ability to take confident action in situations requiring an emergency medical response.

Anaphylactic shock, heart attacks, respiratory failure, snake bite… the list goes on — First Aid training is often the difference between life and death.

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 shouldn’t hesitate for a moment when it comes to learning First Aid!


What Do I Need Before Starting a First Aid Course in Melbourne?

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.

Businesses and organisations should conduct a thorough assessment of the actual hazards in their workplace and gain a full understanding of their legal obligations. They will then be in a position to decide how many of their workers need a First Aid certificate and which First Aid courses to book.

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.

What Is First Aid?

First aid can be defined as the emergency management of another person’s injury or illness until such time advanced first aid, or professional medical help becomes available.

First aid is necessary for many reasons. For one thing, first aid is often carried out in order to alleviate the pain or discomfort being experienced by an affected individual. For another, first aid can also be given to prevent a person’s condition from further deteriorating until they can be brought to a proper medical facility or until paramedics or doctors can see them.

Most importantly, first aid is given to preserve the life of an individual. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, for example, is a first aid technique that can be performed on someone whose heartbeat or breathing has stopped, a manual intervention which supplies the casualties brain and major organs with life-giving oxygenated blood.
