Also known as Level 2 First Aid or Senior First Aid, this course is soon to be re-coded as HLTAID011. You’d need to dive deep into the detail about the use of each and every item in a quality First Aid kit to describe the comprehensive scope of the Provide First Aid course. It’s our most popular course and a staple for workplace compliance.
CPR is a life-saver for victims of cardiac arrest or oxygen deprivation. This course is part of Provide First Aid HLTAID003 and Emergency First Aid HLTAID004. Not to be confused with Level 1 First Aid (HLTAID002 Basic Emergency Life Support), this is a standalone course focused on cardio-pulmonary resuscitation technique. Refresher courses are designed for the annual renewal of Provide CPR certification.
HLTAID004 – Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting (Child Care First Aid)
This course is a career requirement for people planning to work in the childcare and education sectors. Also known as Child Care First Aid, it focuses on First Aid as applied to children and infants. This course is a compelling choice for parents.
Basic Course Differences
While Provide CPR (HLTAID001) puts essental life-saving skills within your reach in short time, both Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) and Child Care First Aid (HLTAID004) are more comprehensive First Aid courses.
Combining more advanced First Aid, including CPR, these two courses encompass more e-Learning and a half-day of face-to-face training. Both courses are ideal for career advancement.

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.
Types of First Aid
First Aid courses target specific knowledge and skill sets that apply in different circumstances.
