Overview

HLTAID003 Provide First Aid

Anyone can be confronted with a medical emergency at any time; it is not predictable and may involve a friend or family member. This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty. The unit applies to all workers who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.

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.

Course Outcomes

On completion of this course you will be equipped with the latest First Aid skills required to assist in resuscitation and other situations whereby first aid may need to be administered.

On successful completion of the course, participants will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the following units of competency:

  • HLTAID003 Provide First Aid
  • HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Most employers will require you to show this certificate to be a nominated First Aider in your workplace or other community organisations.

Entry Requirements

While there are no pre-requisite units for entry to HLTAID003, participants will require basic English language, literacy and numeracy (LLN skills).

Testimonial

“I very much enjoyed the training with Graeme. We had some fun as we learned and it is always great to have the trainer relate the material to real-life issues and events.

I’ve been a trainer myself for years and often find the training I attend to be a bit dry and lifeless.  Graeme kept us awake and entertained and made sure we knew what we were doing.  It was fun and refreshing. ”
