Which Course should I take?

  • If you need a general First Aid qualification, we recommend the HLTAID011 Provide first aid. This also includes CPR qualification. The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recommends that this qualification is updated every 3 years.
  • If you are looking to just update CPR qualification then we recommend HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation.  The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recommends that this qualification is updated annually.
  • If you are looking for a first aid qualification to work in the childcare industry, and also require Anaphylaxis and Asthma training ONLY, the should consider HLTAID012 Provide an emergency first aid response in education and care setting.
  • If you are working with children, you may also be required to obtain first aid training qualifications in Asthma and Anaphylaxis.  You need to check with the employer before enrolling, so that client gets the correct training for his or her circumstance.

Please note that you still need to confirm with your employer first what qualification do you need to take before you book in.

Book First Aid Course

In the workplace, compliance with first aid regulations is crucial to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees. First aid courses provide employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond effectively in the event of an emergency. Booking a first aid course is a simple and effective way to ensure that your workplace is compliant with first aid regulations.

Note: An Express Class is an ASSESSMENT ONLY course and is only applicable to those who hold current qualifications and train annually. If you do not complete these courses regularly, we recommend you book into our REGULAR or Full Length Course. It will be difficult to complete the class assessments without prior learning.

I highly recommend CPR First Aid Flinders Street, Melbourne. As you could see from the photo, John, our trainer, was... very hands-on to each and everyone making sure we got directions well from start to finish. Covid-safety protocols are observed as well so no need to worry about safety. I could say staff are highly experienced and the training was never boring. All training materials provided made the practical class fun at the same time equipped us with the knowledge and skills we needed in CPR or first aid.read more

Did my CPR refresher training 9am 28/04/2021, CPR First Aid make everything so easy and simple, with majority of the... learning online it saves so much time, only having to spend 30 minutes practicing the CPR and confirming knowledge is the perfect way to learn.My trainer was great! Very perceptive to each person in the room and made sure we all felt comfortable with the COVIDsafe guidelines, sanitising our practice manikins after each use.Highly recommend this company and this training location!read more

First time I've enrolled with the company CPR First Aid for the first time. The Trainer that I had today, 19-06-2020... in flinders Street, 'Chris' is excellent. His experience in delivering First Aid is awesome and professional. He makes first aid fun compared to other places which I've been in the past. The trainer Chris applies real life scenarios as a first aider. I highly recommend CPR First Aid, and if you end up with Chris as your trainer, you'll have an enjoyable experience. Well done guys! See you next time.read more
