Different Types of First Aid
Different situations call for different types of First Aid.
Australia Wide First Aid training courses cover a host of health emergency scenarios and teach you how to respond as a First Aid professional.
Specific types of First Aid situations call for targeted learning. Our 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.
Following are the First Aid courses we offer together with the units of competency covered.
Providing First Aid (HLTAID003) – Students develop the skills needed to provide First Aid to an ill or injured individual. This can apply to medical casualties in either the workplace or a community setting. It is recommended that this course is renewed every 3 years.
Providing 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 by this course follows the guidelines laid out by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC). Renewal of training is recommended every 3 years.
CPR Training (HLTAID001) – Known as CPR, each student learns the skills required to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation at home, in the community, and within the workplace. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends renewing training for this particular course 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 can be explained as providing initial medical assistance to a sick or injured person until professional help arrives to provide full medical care.
This can be as simple as dressing minor wounds or providing more advanced First Aid procedures, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or helping a person who is experiencing a serious asthma attack.
Aside from medical attention, First Aid measures can provide much needed reassurance, until professional emergency personnel arrive. The importance of reassurance to the distressed casualty, cannot be overstated.
HLTAID003 Provide First Aid is the entry level First Aid course taught at Australia Wide First Aid. Formerly known as Senior First Aid, this is by far the most popular First Aid training course and the minimum course requirement to qualify as a workplace First Aider.
Difference between Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid
Common competencies are shared between these Perth First Aid courses. And all courses meet the requirements of our regulator and peak industry bodies. Each course teaches the basics in terms of providing First Aid and basic life support, and both include CPR.
However, they differ in their duration and the scope of situations they handle. In particular, Emergency First Aid has an additional focus on providing specialised First Aid for infants and children in various emergency situations.
The emergency First Aid course is specifically designed for staff employed in Education and Care settings. Successful students of this First Aid course would need to refresh their training and renew their qualification every 3 years.
For this Emergency First Aid course, we deliver training to groups at their premises. At our public training venues at Belmont and Joondalup, we stick to delivering Provide First Aid and CPR.
All courses, whether delivered at our location or yours, are fully accredited First Aid courses. These are ideal Perth First Aid courses to acquire First Aid knowledge and skill. And they are, of course, perfect if you need a First Aid certificate for work.
Australia Wide First Aid is the driving force in delivering streamlined First Aid training of the highest quality. It is our goal to help keep our homes and workplaces as safe as possible by making valuable First Aid skills widely available to as many people as possible throughout the Australia.
