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.
