This course has been designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to respond safely and effectively manage first aid situations.
Anyone can be confronted with a medical emergency at any time; it is not predictable and may involve a friend or family member. This course has been designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to respond safely and effectively manage first aid situations until the handover to medical professionals is possible. Many employers require this competency as a minimum standard for employment or appointment into key positions such as supervisors and/or team leaders.
This course is based on the latest Health Training Package (HLT) and has been designed using recommendations from Professional Industry Associations including the Australian Resuscitation Council, Diabetes Australia (Queensland) and Anaphylaxis Australia just to mention a few.
On successful completion of the course, participants will be issued with a First Aid Certificate (Statement of Attainment).
