Types of First Aid
Different situations call for different types of First Aid, as well as for specific, targeted knowledge and skills.
Australia Wide First Aid training courses cover a host of health emergency scenarios. These First Aid courses vary in duration, according to whether they cover basic emergency life support, or whether they include administering life-saving cardio pulmonary resuscitation.
All of our First Aid courses are fully accredited and teach you the techniques of First Aid professionals.
Following are the First Aid courses we offer together with the units of competency covered.
Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) – in this course, you will learn the skills needed to provide First Aid to a sick or injured person. Included are the techniques for responding to typical medical emergencies in homes, workplaces, and in community settings. It is recommended that this certification is renewed every 3 years. The CPR component should be refreshed every year.
Provide Basic Life Support (HLTAID002) – This course covers the skills and knowledge necessary to identify a life-threatening situation and how to respond to it. Information provided in this course follows the guidelines established by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC). Renewal of this certification is recommended every 3 years.
Provide CPR (HLTAID001) – this training module teaches you how to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, as well as how to use an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator). The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends renewing training for this particular qualification every 12 months.
Childcare First Aid (HLTAID004) – Provide an Emergency First Aid response in an Education and Care Setting. Includes the units HLTAID001, HLTAID002, HLTAID003, HLTAID004.
What Is First Aid?
First Aid provides immediate medical assistance to a sick or injured person until professional medical help becomes available. It aims to prevent the patient’s conditioning worsening and ultimately saves lives.
First Aid can be as simple as dressing minor wounds, helping a person who is experiencing a serious asthma attack, or involve more advanced First Aid procedures, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Aside from first responder medical attention, First Aid can also provide much needed reassurance, until professional medical personnel arrive. The importance of reassurance to a distressed casualty cannot be overstated.
HLTAID003 Provide First Aid is by far the most popular First Aid training course taught at Australia Wide First Aid. Formerly known as Senior First Aid, this is the minimum course requirement to qualify as a workplace First Aider.
Difference between Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid
Our Perth First Aid courses share common competencies, with each course teaching the basics in terms of providing First Aid and basic life support, and both include CPR. And all courses meet the requirements of our regulator and peak industry bodies.
However, the courses differ in their duration and the scope of situations they handle. In particular, Childcare First Aid has an additional focus on providing specialised First Aid for infants and children in emergency situations.
The HLTAID004 Childcare First Aid course is specifically designed for staff employed in Education and Care settings. As with the Provide First Aid HLTAID003 certification, you would need to refresh your training and renew your qualification every 3 years.
HLTAID004 Childcare First Aid can be taught to groups at your premises. At our public training venues at Belmont and Joondalup, we stick to delivering HLTAID003 Provide First Aid and HLTAID001 CPR.
Whether delivered at our location or yours, our Perth First Aid courses are fully accredited and a streamlined way to acquire First Aid knowledge and skill — ideal when you need a First Aid certificate for work.
Australia Wide First Aid specialises in streamlined First Aid training of the highest quality. It is our goal to make valuable First Aid skills widely available to as many people as possible throughout the Australia and help keep people in our homes and workplaces as safe as possible.
