All it takes is a day or two training and assessment and the foresight to enrol in a first aid course. Australia Wide First Aid has trained well over a million Australians and is yet to come across anyone who has not found the training empowering.

What you learn in an accredited first aid training course will also enable you to keep a cool head if you are injured or stricken by illness yourself. And you will be a capable guardian for family and friends.
The benefits truly add up. Don’t hesitate to enrol.
Your First Aid Trainer
Our first aid trainers are no strangers to danger. No doubt, your trainer will be more comfortably dressed when they greet you at your first aid class. But you can be sure they’ll share some real world tales for your enlightenment.
When your trainer is not busy sharing the benefits of their vast experience with you, they are usually out in the field — devising emergency strategies for all kinds of potentially hazardous situations.
Whether you’re being shown how to perform CPR on a manikin, learning about risks and emergencies, or hearing about first aid management of anaphylaxis, your Australia Wide First Aid course is certain to be fascinating, enjoyable, and memorable.
What You’ll Learn in Your First Aid Course
You’ll be taught a wide range of skills when you learn First Aid. The most crucial of these is learning how to respond to an injured or ill person in an emergency.
AED and CPR training
You’ll learn what to do when a person has stopped breathing. In many emergency situations, CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer. It is of such vital importance, it’s a wonder learning it isn’t part of every school-kid’s education.
You’ll also learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This is the heart-starter that paramedics regularly use to deliver a shock to a person undergoing cardiac arrest.
Treating wounds and bodily injuries
You’ll also learn another important facet of First Aid — wound care. Cuts, sprains, burns and bites all need correct bandaging. Along with techniques to manage injury to bones, muscles and joints, you’ll be shown the best treatment for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.
Breathing and choking emergencies
There are First Aid techniques for checking the breathing of a casualty and clearing the airway if called for. You’ll learn those techniques, as well as what to do when someone is choking, from infants to adults. You’ll understand and be able to provide First Aid responses that are appropriate for managing an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.
Knowing how to deliver First Aid to a person who has been poisoned is a critical aspect of your training. You’ll learn how to safely treat a victim who has been poisoned whether the toxin was inhaled, ingested, or injected by needle or fang.
Unexpected medical emergencies
Your First Aid course will also prepare you for responding to unexpected medical emergencies — from epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. Your training will allow you to think quickly and act confidently. You’ll be ready to make decisions and take steps that will help avoid disastrous outcomes.
Emergencies can occur in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. But with your First Aid training, you’ll be able to take the kind of action that saves lives.
Our First Aid classes teach you not only appropriate emergency responses, but also what to look for, and how to stay safe yourself.
On a day-to-day level, your First Aid training will strengthen your resolve, lift your attitude, and enhance your career.
How Australia Wide First Aid Delivers
Our First Aid training is COVID-safe. Hygiene and social distancing are maintained at all times.
We provide one-on-one, as well as group First Aid classes. The group classes can be held at your site, which means that the First Aid training can be customised to suit your specific environment.
Our industry-experienced, fully certified trainers are available in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.
First Aid Training Simplified
We make it our priority to not only provide access to accredited First Aid training, but also to blend online e-Learning with the minimum of face-to-face training.
From the outset, you choose the time and place for your practical assessment. And while the days click over until your scheduled face-to-face session, you simply complete the theory component online and at your convenience.
Once you book your course, you’ll have immediate online access to a PDF First Aid manual. You’ll find it full of important information and well-explained from start to finish.
However, depending on the course you selected, only a portion of the manual might be needed for your e-Learning questionnaire.
If you’re running short on time, you can simply refer to the manual as you’re answering the questionnaire. You can have as many attempts as you need to choose True or False, check the correct multiple-choice answers, and complete the handful of drag-and-drop puzzles.
If it takes a few attempts to arrive at the correct answer, it pays to consider why it’s correct. That way, you’ll gain a better insight into First Aid.
You have until 11:59pm the night before your face-to-face First Aid class to submit your e-Learning assessment. Of course, it’s better if you get started sooner rather than later.
Our trainers keep things light-hearted and entertaining in class. You’ll enjoy it more if you’re not sleep-deprived! And you want to arrive with time to spare, relaxed.
Your First Aid Course Completed
Completing your First Aid class is not a difficult process. We make sure it runs like clockwork because we appreciate the time constraints most of us are under.
Your First Aid certificate will be emailed to you, like clockwork too, shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes. Same-day certification!
You’ll be pleased to know that your First Aid certificate from Australia Wide First Aid will be recognised the length and breadth of Australia. You’ll be ready for career advancement, workplace compliance, as well as saving lives.
In time, your First Aid certificate will need a refresher. For example, HLTAID001 CPR needs to be renewed annually, including the CPR component within HLTAID003 Provide First Aid, the balance of which needs a refresher course only after 3 years. This is simply so First Aiders can align their skills with updated training methodology.
How Do I Become a First Aider?
The minimum requirement to become an recognised First Aider is a Statement of Attainment in Provide First Aid, HLTAID003.
Gaining this First Aid certificate is a simple matter of completing the required units of competency with Australia Wide First Aid. You could earn you Provide First Aid qualification by successfully completing regular modules, technique-specific modules, or workplace-specific modules.
To enrol in an accredited First Aid training course with Australia Wide First Aid, you need to be at least 14 years of age.
If you’re under the age of 18, you would need to provide parental or guardian consent.
HLTAID003 Provide First Aid is valid for a period of 3 years, after which, to remain valid and current, the certification should be renewed with a refresher First Aid course.
