Our First Aid course provides you with the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in line with first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.
Units of Competency
Our first Aid course issues the following units of competency:
HLTAID011 – Provide First Aid
HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation
You must provide your Unique Student Identifier (USI) number at the time of enrolment. A USI is your individual education number and is required if you are undertaking nationally recognised training. To find or create your USI and further information please visit the website https://www.usi.gov.au/students
Basic numeracy and literacy are required.
For the online theory component, you must have access to a computer, smartphone or electronic device with access to the internet to complete these studies.
You must have the physical capacity to perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor.
Online theory modules and a face-to-face workshop.
The face-to-face workshop will take 4 hours. The online theory component will depend on the individual’s previous skills, knowledge, and experience.
Upon completion of the course, and once assessed as fully competent you will be issued with a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment and Certificate. This certification is valid for 3 years and the CPR component of the course must be renewed annually.
