I recently participated in a first aid and cpr course with this company. The email communication was very clear and... concise. I knew what I had to do, and what was expected of me. Shout out to Roger, who was very friendly and engaging, making the theory aspects of the course surprisingly informative and enjoyable. He did everything he could to ensure we were able to successfully complete the required assessments. He had a great sense of humour!For what most people have previously experienced or have preconceived ideas around what a half day first aid training would look like, this is NOT that! For sure, I'll be back to renew with you guys! Great value for money!read more

I booked with this company again for a refresher course as I had a great experience 3 years ago and thought that would... be the standard that AWFA provides. Not so this time. The value in going to a face to face session is focussing on practical skills and knowledge. I acknowledge that Covid restrictions may have changed how content is delivered, but to spend 3hours 45 min listening to anecdotes and about 15 min total in hands on wasnt what I paid for. I would be really angry if I had paid for this course as a first timer, instead of a refresher, as the basic first aid for asthma, allergy, wound care was glossed over in 2mins, with the assumption we all knew it anyway. If you pay and turn up for a course, then it is the trainers job to respect that and deliver the relevant information that was the intent of the course.read more

What a poor customer experience.I had selected this first aid provider because they runs courses that suits my busy... schedule.Today I went to refresh my CPR. Upon arrival I was embarrassingly turned away for not completing the pre course work. I had not received any emails from the organisation before my booked class and was therefore unable to do this. I was then directed to call the customer service line and told the operator on the other line my circumstances.I was offered a rebooking for the next day however due to my work schedule I would not be able to accept. I tried explaining this to the customer service operator. The operator then affirmed the providers inflexibility to individuals on a case by case circumstances. I asked about refund options again the operator refused this request and stated that I would need to rebook.I found this whole process humiliating and am disappointed by Australia Wide First Aid’s lack of empathy and inflexibility. I would not recommend this RTO to anyone.read more

I have to say very poorly run institution. My experience with the teachers was good but their customer service and... admin services are a shambles. I was originally booked in for an Express First Aid course and it was cancelled on the morning of the course with no replacement teacher. This was annoying as the Express courses are only run once per month. I tried to book in multiple times and they said I could not. Finally I organised a full day course as you can only do the express within 12 months of the last but when I showed up I was not on the list and the teacher said he could not let me in the class. I showed him the email from Australia Wide First Aid which said that I was booked but the message had not been transferred to the teacher. The teacher was helpful and tried to call his director but there was no answer so I could not do the class even though I had paid for it. I am wondering g if anyone is actually going to follow up on this now or am I just another number. After initially being happy with the quality of their courses I now have to choose a different provider as I cannot rely on this company’s administration. I demand a refund also as that is 3 times I have not been able to do your course. Please improve the communication systems.read more

Choose a Melbourne CBD First Aid short course

Choosing your first aid short course could be a matter of career requirements. If it’s your personal decision, the following overview will help.

More in-depth information can be found below and on our Courses page.

Course Compared

You’ll gain game-changing life-saving skills in short time with the HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation course.

HLTAID003 Provide first aid and HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting are courses that include those same skills and more, teaching you how to respond effectively to most medical emergencies.

These 2 courses include CPR training and are more comprehensive in their scope of First Aid skills and knowledge. As a consequence, there is more e-Learning involved and a half-day of face-to-face training.

Both courses are ideal for career advancement. If you plan to work in the childcare or education sectors, HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting would be your best choice.

What Is First Aid?

First aid is all about providing immediate assistance to a sick or injured person until professional medical help becomes available. It aims to prevent the patient’s conditioning worsening and can ultimately save lives.

First aid can be as simple as dressing minor wounds or helping a person who is experiencing an asthma attack. It could also involve more advanced first aid procedures, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

First aid attention also provides the means to reassure a distressed casualty, until professional medical personnel arrive. The importance of this reassurance cannot be overstated.

First aid courses target specific knowledge and skill sets that apply in different circumstances.

Our most popular course — HLTAID003 Provide first aid — satisfies Australian workplace compliance. This course incorporates HLTAID002 Provide basic emergency life support, as well as HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which focuses on the life-saving techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
