Provide First Aid (HLTAID003)

This course provides candidates with the knowledge and skills needed to manage emergency first aid situations and deliver competent emergency care until the arrival of professional medical support. Students who have successfully completed this course will be given an accredited Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) qualification that is valid for three years. CPR component is included in this course. It is recommended by the Australian Resuscitation Council that the CPR component of this course be updated every 12 months.

Attainment of this qualification satisfies the first aid training requirements for many Curtin courses (both undergrad and postgrad), and will also enable you to progress onto more advanced courses, if relevant.

This single day course provides a good general foundation in first aid, and will qualify you to perform basic life support skills. Surf Life Saving WA (SLSWA) promises fun, interactive and informative training courses, so don’t miss your opportunity to jump on board!

The following adjustments are now in place for all training courses;
• compulsory PPE as required (in particular gloves)
• physical distancing and participant spacing to meet the 1.5m and 4m rules. Adjustment to participant numbers as required according to venue size and government regulations
• use of additional training equipment to minimise sharing
• increased cleaning resources for venue and equipment
• use of full body manikins for bandaging and patient scenarios - no physical contact between students
• no requirement to breath into manikins - participants blow down the side of manikins face to demonstrate CPR
• Trainers have undertaken Federal Government online COVID-19 Infection Control training

We are very conscious of the new regulations and the safety of students and trainers is our highest priority.
