Why choose this course?

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in line with first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.

The unit applies to all persons who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.

What to Expect

This new wholistic style of first aid course consists of a 3-4 hour programme including practical and theory. Pre or post course home work (all completed during the course) may be required.

We achieve this by presenting the information in a wholistic way, bringing together overlapping conditions and treatments. This in turn keeps first aid procedures simple to understand and relevant. Participants complete the practical section in 1 day.
