This course is suitable for those in workplaces and members of the public who would like a comprehensive first aid course. This course was previously known as Senior First Aid, Workplace Level 2 and Apply First Aid.
Knowing what to do in the first few minutes following an accident can be the difference between life and death. This nationally accredited certificate provides you with practical skills and knowledge combined with the confidence to provide initial emergency care in accordance with approved first aid principles that only a course with a comprehensive face to face component can offer.
Our course incorporates a number of realistic classroom simulations aimed at preparing you to deal with first aid situations with a practical real-world approach to first aid. Our most popular course by far is our blended delivery course which combines online self-paced learning with face to face classroom training.
Our blended delivery course ensures that all the practical hands-on elements of first aid, together with all the critical life-saving components of first aid such as using an AED, performing CPR or dealing with serious injuries, are taught by qualified trainers in a face to face environment. As for the non-life-threatening elements of the course, this material is taught to you via our student portal using a combination of presentations and video-enhanced materials.
The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid course is considered the industry standard in first aid training and is suitable for anybody requiring a Level II or workplace first aid certificate for use in the workplace, home and sport or recreational groups. This certification is nationally recognised and acknowledged throughout Australia.
