About Our First Aid Courses

First Aid refers to a set of first responses to a range of medical emergencies.

In Australia, these responses are catalogued by the National Register of Vocational and Education Training as units of competency. Qualification is by way of Statements of Attainment in these competencies.

HLTAID001 is CPR Only. At Australia Wide First Aid, our most popular course, Provide First Aid, bundles together 3 of these units: HLTAID001, HLTAID002, and HLTAID003.
