Provide First Aid HTLAID011
Learn how or refresh your knowledge and skills to provide first aid in this one day first aid training course.
The Health Training Package has updated and are mandatory from October 2021 – all courses completed under the old versions prior to October 2021 are still valid – 12 months for Provide CPR and Advanced Resuscitation and 3 years for Provide First Aid and Provide Basic Emergency Life support.
First Aid Action will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to administer first aid to a casualty who has sustained an injury or illness, until the arrival of professional medical help.
Whilst the theory and concepts of First Aid are covered in the course, the Provide First Aid One Day Course focuses on the various practical skills needed to administer first aid. A Learner Guide and online theory is utilised to limit the face-to-face contact post COVID and must be completed prior to attending the course. This allows the client to study the theory at their own pace. Our One Day Provide First Aid course uses a very “hands on” approach where theory is learnt while performing scenarios relevant to the client’s industry. We use a theatrical approach to the role plays to make them appear very realistic. Mix’n’match games, group activities, video and PowerPoint presentations makes this course interactive and a very enjoyable learning experience. We also have a new addition “Eileen” who is a full sized manikin to assist with demonstrations and scenarios.
This course can also be delivered over two days (no workbook required) depending on the clients needs.
