Provide First Aid HLTAID003 – Full or Refresher
This unit of competency 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 covering the knowledge and skills to provide first aid response, life support, management of the casualty(s) and resuscitation.
Students are to complete pre course theory via self-paced learning using either our on-line course or we can send out a workbook and manual. This takes on average 2 hours to complete, with some people taking much more. (There is no time limit)
Upon completion of the theory students are required to attend 8 hours of face to face workshop.
A refresher course is available for students who hold a current Provide First Aid certificate (or equivalent), in which case there is no pre course theory to complete. Students just attend the 8 hours of face to face workshop.
