About our first aid course certification
First aid refers to a set of first responses to a range of medical emergencies.
In Australia, these responses are catalogued by the National Register of Vocational and Education Training as units of competency. Qualification is by way of Statements of Attainment in these competencies.
At Australia Wide First Aid, we provide courses to cover these units of competency.
Our most popular course — Provide First Aid — bundles together 3 valuable units of competency: HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation, HLTAID010 Provide basic emergency life support, and HLTAID011 Provide First Aid.
HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation focuses on the life-saving technique of CPR.
HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting is the course for people who work in the education and childcare sectors.
With its focus on first aid for children and infants (but also including first aid for adults), this course is also popular with Sunshine Coast parents.

Nobody regrets doing their first aid training. It has a positive effect on you, as well as on your family and your colleagues. It is reassuring for all.

Sunshine Coast community
The Great Outdoors could hardly be more enticing than on the Sunshine Coast.
The Sunny Coast has something for everyone — from the golden beaches to the rustic beauty of the hinterland, to the boutique shops and cafés at Noosa, Maroochydore and Mooloolaba.
But accidents do happen — anywhere, anytime.
All too frequently, people get into bother in the surf and in the pool. Not just visitors. Locals too.
There are stingers, in the water and out. People fall victim to heat stroke. They fall off bikes and skateboards and get into all sorts of scrapes.
Life-saving first aid is how you can help make the Sunshine Coast a safer place. And your first aid certificate is way to show your community spirit.
