Australia Wide First Aid courses

Australia Wide First Aid provides short courses designed for individuals and groups to gain nationally accredited certification. These courses include:

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, as taught in our first aid course: Provide CPR

HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Learn the proper application of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Provide CPR is trained and assessed in line with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.

Your technique will be fine-tuned in face-to-face training that follows streamlined e-Learning you can complete at your convenience.

You'll learn the knowledge and skills required to provide CPR, to manage and assess an emergency situation, and how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED).

The First Aider's legal responsibilities will be discussed. You'll also learn the all-important DRSABCD first aid strategy.

Depending on your learning ability, you should allow up to 2.5 hours for reading and e-Learning. Face-to-face training and assessment takes 2 hours in a classroom environment.

Your nationally recognised CPR certification — emailed to you the same day as course completion – officially recognises your ability to respond effectively to cardiac and breathing-related emergencies.

Don’t hesitate to enrol in this course and find out how good it feels to have the skills to save lives.

HLTAID011 Provide First Aid

By far our most popular 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 course covers the skills and knowledge involved in providing a first aid response as well as how to provide life support.

You'll learn first aid management of casualty(ies), the incident and other first aiders, until qualified emergency help arrives to take over.

Depending on your learning ability, you should allow up to 6 hours for reading and e-Learning. Face-to-face training and assessment takes 4 hours in a classroom environment.

Your certificate — HLTAID011 Provide First Aid PDF Statement of Attainment – will be emailed to you the same day you complete your course.

Current industry standards recommend renewing this certification every 3 years with the CPR component due for renewal every 12 months.

HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting

This is the ideal course for parents of young children, as well as those interested in working in the care or education sectors.

With its focus on first aid for infants and 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.

The course covers the knowledge and skills required to respond to first aid emergencies, including asthmatic and anaphylactic emergencies.

The training is in accordance with Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines and may contribute towards approved first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis training requirements defined by Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

The benefits of learning first aid

Acquiring first aid skills and knowledge is beneficial not only to you but also to people around you. Your family, friends and colleagues will appreciate your willingness to take charge should an emergency medical situation eventuate. Respect.

You will feel more confident, knowing you have the skills to respond when needed. You’ll acquire a keen eye for spotting risks and hazards. And your decision-making ability in times of emergency will be spot-on — efficient, effective, and appropriate.

If you happen to be sharing a space with a person who’s at risk because of underlying health conditions, your first aid training will be reassuring, if not vital.

What’s more, first aid certification is a decisive advantage when applying for jobs in certain industries. As a professional, completing accredited first aid courses contributes to your continuing professional development (CPD points).

What it takes to become a first aider

Anyone can be taught first aid. However, to attend an Australia Wide First Aid course, you need to be at least 14 years old.

Once you complete your pre-course reading and e-Learning assessment, you simply submit it online before 11:59 PM, the night before your scheduled face-to-face first aid training.

Successful completion of your first aid course earns you a Statement of Attainment. This first aid certificate will be emailed to you the same day as you complete your course.

The only things that stand in the way of you receiving your first aid certificate would be failing to a valid USI (Unique Student Identifier), failing to complete payment for your course, or failing to complete your first aid assessment.

If you’ve satisfied those easy requirements, your first aid certificate is yours the same day as your course.

Time to enrol in a North Lakes First Aid Course

Australia Wide First Aid courses are perfect for newbies who have never completed a first aid course before.

Equally, these first aid courses are ideal for health professionals who have completed countless first aid courses over the years and simply need to renew their first aid certification.

For first aid skills and knowledge to remain current, your first aid certification should be renewed periodically. The certificate for HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be renewed annually.

The same would apply to the CPR component of the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid certificate, whereas that certificate as a whole — as it is for HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting — should be renewed every 3 years.

Enrolling is as simple as selecting your preferred date from the Course Selector on this web page, or calling our friendly team to find out more about the first aid courses on offer at North Lakes.
