For a number of years, Melbourne has consistently earned a spot in the 10 Most Liveable Cities in the World list. The city scored very well in terms of environment, education, infrastructure, safety, and healthcare. To maintain this great achievement, enforcement of laws like the OHS Act (Occupational Health and Safety Act of 2004) are taken seriously. A significant portion of this law focuses on the need for first aid and first aid training in the workplace. And here is where the expertise of Australia Wide First Aid is crucial. Our company holds regular trainings in Melbourne CBD, covering courses that include CPR, Provide First Aid, Asthma & Anaphylaxis, Workplace First Aid Courses, and more. Victoria is one of the most densely populated states in Australia. As such, Australia Wide First Aid offers courses in multiple locations that are conveniently accessible to the public. These locations can be found in the cities of Melbourne, Clayton, Ringwood, Hoppers Crossing, and Sunshine, Victoria.
What Is First Aid?
First aid is the initial treatment provided to an injured or sick person until proper medical professionals take over. This initial care is vital for the recovery of the patient and can even be life-saving in some cases. In most emergency situations, the first aid providers are not medical professionals. That’s why first aid is limited to basic treatment that can be learned through minimal training.
Why Do You Need To Learn First Aid?
Learning first aid is an empowering achievement that everyone can benefit from. Instead of feeling helpless during medical emergencies, you can take control, assess the situation properly, and take action.
An officially recognised training certification can also boost your employment prospects. Regardless of the industry you are in, this life-saving skill is a boon to any workplace. Your employer will appreciate the fact that there is a certified first aider who can assist the company in complying with workplace safety standards.
Speaking of which, workplace compliance is another critical factor for learning first aid. WorkSafe Victoria, under Victorian WorkCover Authority ensures that employers comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHS Act of 2004) and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (OHS Regulations of 2017) in providing proper first aid facilities and establishing first aid protocols for a safe work environment. Under these standards, first aid training requirements are dependent on how large the organisation is and the risk assessment of the workplace.
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere and to anyone. Whether you’re at home, at work, or out traveling, you can never be too prepared to act and save a life. What’s more, you might even get to save the life of those you love the most.
Types of First Aid Courses
Here’s a list of the courses offered by Australia Wide First Aid in our Victoria training venues:
Provide First Aid – According to Victoria’s Work Safe Compliance Code, this course is the minimum acceptable first aid training level for workplaces. The course is also known by various titles such as Apply First Aid, Senior First Aid or Level 2, and Workplace First Aid. Within an 8-hour pre-course reading and another 8-hour face-to-face class, you can expect to learn CPR (HLTAID001), basic life support (HLTAID002), and general first aid concepts (HLTAID003). Enrol in the faster Express Provide First Aid version of this course for a reduced 5 hours of class time instead of 8. The fast-tracked course can only be taken by students who have earned their Provide First Aid statement of attainment.
CPR – Learn how to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation with 2.5 hours of pre-course reading and online assessment as well as 3 hours of practical training in a class. Once you passed the assessment, you will proudly earn a certification for HLTAID001 training. If you want a fast-tracked version of this course, the Express CPR is also available, which reduces the face-to-face class to 2 hours. The express course can only be taken by students who have already completed a regular CPR course.
Emergency First Aid – This training course includes all modules in the Provide First Aid training, but it also adds the Provide Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting or HLTAID004 module. If you work at a school or day care facility, this is the course for you. At the end of the course, expect to meet and even exceed the childcare standards set by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). It also features comprehensive emergency asthma training and anaphylaxis management that are specified by the Education and Care Service National Law and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The duration of the course includes 8 hours of pre-course reading and online assessment and 9 hours of practical course training. The express version of this course, Express Emergency First Aid, comes with only 6 hours of face-to-face interaction.
Asthma and Anaphylaxis – With more and more cases of children suffering from asthma and anaphylaxis allergic reactions, teachers and childcare providers are now required to undergo life-saving first aid training for these conditions. Fortunately, Australia Wide First Aid offers a training course that fully satisfies the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines as well as the ACECQA requirements. Upon completion of this course, you also comply with the Education and Care Service National Law and the Education and Care Services National Regulations which states that all schools and care providers be trained about these common yet serious conditions.
These combined modules, Course in the Management of Asthma Risks and Emergencies in the Workplace (22282VIC) and Course in First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis (22300VIC), will require 4 hours of pre-course reading and assessment as well as 4 hours of classroom training.
Perform Rescue From a Live LV Panel – On this advanced course, you will learn the full DRSABCD (Danger, Response, Send for Help, Airway, Breathing, CPR, Defibrillator) procedure for managing emergency situations. Aside from the 3 hour CPR training (HLTAID001), you will also learn how and when to use a defibrillator (UETTDRRF06B). To complete the course, you need to put in about 3 hours of pre-course reading/assessment and 5 hours of practical classroom interaction.
Workplace First Aid Courses – Businesses, schools, and even families can avail of Australia Wide First Aid’s group bookings. The training can be done at your workplace, school, home or somewhere convenient for your group. The courses in this group training can be tailored to mitigate everyday health hazards and risks. Simply pick and choose the courses that are relevant to you and your organisation so you can make the most of your time. Within 24 hours of successful completion of the course, your individual statements of attainment will be provided.
