Choose from these short courses in Geelong:
– also known as Level 2 First Aid or Senior First Aid. Soon to be superceded by HLTAID011 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This our most popular course and a staple for workplace compliance.
– CPR is a life-saver for cardiac arrest victims and anyone who has been deprived of life-giving oxygen. This course is not the same as Level 1 First Aid (HLTAID002 Basic Emergency Life Support), which is part of HLTAID003 Provide First Aid and HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting.
HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting (Child Care First Aid)
– also known as Child Care First Aid, this course is a career requirement for many people, and a compelling choice for concerned parents.
While Provide CPR puts a life-saving skill within your reach in short time, both Provide First Aid and Child Care First Aid are more comprehensive courses.
These two courses include CPR and essential First Aid, as well as a half-day of face-to-face training plus a little more e-Learning. The certificates are valuable inclusions on professional CVs.

Difference between Provide First Aid & Emergency First Aid
Our Geelong Group First Aid courses share common competencies and meet the requirements of our regulator and peak industry bodies. Each course teaches the basics in terms of providing First Aid and basic life support, and both include CPR.
The courses differ in duration and in the scope of situations they handle. In particular, HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting (Child Care First Aid) has an additional focus on providing First Aid for infants and children in emergency situations.
Child Care First Aid is specifically designed for staff employed in Education and Care settings. As with the HLTAID003 Provide First Aid certificate, you would need to refresh your training and renew your qualification every 3 years.
Child Care First Aid is often taught in groups at the client’s own premises. Our public training centres in Geelong, the Melbourne CBD, Bendigo, Clayton, Epping, Ringwood, and Sunshine are also available for group First Aid courses.
At Australia Wide First Aid, our goal is to make First Aid skills more readily available throughout Australia to help keep people as safe as possible in their homes and workplaces.
