This Nationally Recognised course supersedes the previous qualifications Senior First Aid and Apply First Aid.
It is a one day course that provides participants with the knowledge and skills in providing first aid and basic life support until arrival of medical assistance. This includes
- Calling for help
- The ability to respond to first aid situations
- Casualty assessment
- Decision making
- Basic life support functions including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
The face to face training is around 7 hours and with all assessment occuring on the training day. We do not require any pre-reading or online testing. The course covers both theory and practical aspects of first aid management, with a huge focus on the practical. This isn’t one of those boring courses where you have to sit and listen to a lecturer all day! We have small group scenarios, learn easy bandaging/slings, use asthma puffers and Epipens and much much more!
At our public courses morning tea, tea/coffee etc are provided, just bring your own lunch along. We do have a break for lunch and there are plenty of areas in Port Lincoln to purchase meals.
The certificate is valid for three (3) years from the completion date. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends that Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation skills be refreshed annually.
On successful completion of the course participants will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the nationally accredited course – Provide First Aid HLTAID003
First Aid certificates are emailed following each course. An additional wallet-sized plastic card can be ordered to help keep certification details handy.
