HLTAID011 Provide First Aid

Course Description

Would you know what to do if someone required emergency first aid?

First aid skills is an asset no person should be without. While it is a legal requirement to have first aid trained staff on site at most workplaces it is also a valuable skill to have at home and with your family.

In this course you will learn basic anatomy, physiology and the differences between adults, children and infants relating to CPR, the importance of the chain of survival, written and verbal reporting of incident details, reviewing incidents to improve own skills and response times, to recognise psychological impacts, and seeking help as required.

The course covers assessing the casualty, providing safety, accessing emergency services, and using resources to provide first aid, such as providing CPR and using a defibrillator, administering an autoinjector for anaphylaxis, administering asthma medication, assisting someone choking, using appropriate immobilisation techniques for envenomation, fractures, dislocations, sprains and strains, managing casualties with non-life-threatening bleeding and shock.

With instruction and practical training in line with legal, workplace and community considerations, Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and other Australian national peak clinical bodies, this first aid course teaches the skills and knowledge to recognise emergencies and provide immediate and effective first aid treatment to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to provide for onsite workplace CPR Training?

I supply the manikins and all training equipment required for the class.

All I need from your workplace is enough chairs for each of the participants and an open area to train in.

Is there a minimum number of participants required for a group booking?

I require a minimum of 6 participant to run an onsite workplace group training session

Is there a maximum number of participants allowed in a group booking?

I can train a maximum of 20 participants at a time.  If maximum amount of participants are being trained I require enough room for manikins to be placed on the ground and an extenstion of 30 minutes will be added to the training session to allow for adequate practice and assessment time and ensure your team receives quality training.

If there is insufficent space at your venue then back to back express classes are always a great alternative to ensure the best training for your staff.

What if some of my staff only need CPR but the rest need their full first aid certificate?

That is no problem at all and it is very common. For groups like this I recommend starting the CPR only and First Aid group at the same time.

I start the class completing the CPR component of the training and assessment. When this is complete those that just needed CPR are free to leave and either head home or return to work and those that need the full first aid carry on with the rest of their course with me.

Does the First Aid Certificate include CPR?

Yes that is correct. With successful completion of the First Aid course you will receive Nationally Recognised Certificates for

  • HLTAID011 Provide First Aid
  • HLTAID010 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support
  • HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
Can I still get a certificate if I cannot perform CPR on the floor?

To qualify for a Nationally Recognised Certificate for HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, it is a requirement participants are able to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin on the floor. 

While reasonable adjustment can be made like extra time or a chair for assistance the CPR assessment on an adult manikin must be completed on the floor and to Australian Resuscitation Standards to qualify for a certificate.

If you have back or knee problems that prevent you from kneeling please contact your supervisor or myself prior to training as you may only be able to recieve a certificate of attendance.

What if I just want training for myself?

That’s great! I look forward to seeing you in one of my public classes!

I run CPR classes open to the public every Friday at Waterman Eastland at Eastland Shopping Center in Ringwood.

Bookings can be made via the booking calendar above.

Do I need to renew my CPR certificate to keep my first aid certificate valid?

In short answer yes it is recommended.

According to the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) it is reccommended that you renew your CPR training annually and your first aid training every 3 years to keep your skills and knowledge up to date. 

What is a USI and how do I find my USI ?

A USI is your Unique Student Identification number. This is issued by the Government and you keep it for life. If you have completed any VET training such at HLTAID011 Provide First Aid or other Nationally Recognised courses then you will likely already have a USI.

Your USI contains all your Nationally Recognised Training records from Janurary 1st 2015 onwards.
