Choose a Melbourne CBD First Aid short course

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.

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.
