Education Specific First Aid (HLTAID004 - Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting

This course is suitable for those working in the education or care setting. It provides the knowledge and skills to be able to assess and manage a range of first aid situations in the education or care setting and includes industry specific information about regulations and requirements. Information is based on the current Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines. 

Our first aid course combines pre-learning and face to face learning for a convenient and cost effective approach.

There are no written exams or written assessments on the day of the course.
