HLTAID011 Provide First Aid (Incorporating CPR HLTAID009)

Course Objective

This nationally accredited unit has been designed in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applies to all workers or members of the community who may be required to provide first aid and CPR in the event of an emergency. First aid training equips the participant for responding to emergencies in both basic and high risk environments. This course provides the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response, including management of the incident and other first aiders until the arrival of senior medical personnel. The aim of the course is to not only provide accurate and concise demonstrations of the required skills, but also develop the participant’s confidence in using the lifesaving skills and equipment. It has been developed to ensure the skills and knowledge are acquired to give the participant the confidence to coordinate the response and provide first aid and CPR techniques in challenging environments, in order to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote a full recovery.

Our training is conducted by current industry professionals and content experts who deliver high-quality, practical, and contextualised training that meet the needs of your specific work environments.
