Why do I need First Aid?

You never know when an emergency may occur. If you know first aid though, you can at least be sure you’re as ready as you can be when things go awry. 

How do I get qualified for First Aid?

HLTAID011 Provide First Aid is a mix of knowledge (theory) and practical (skills).

If you complete the Face-to-Face course, you will be assessed on the knowledge requirements in class.

If you complete the Learning Online course, you will be assessed on the knowledge requirements online.

Practical assessment is completed in-class for both courses as you must be observed performing your first aid skills by a registered trainer. 

How do I do First Aid Learning Online?

Students do their knowledge assessment independently online before finishing the course by doing the practical assessment in class with a certified local first aid trainer. The duration of the in-class session is condensed because the knowledge assessment has already been done. 

Course cost
