First Aid Courses

First Aid Workshops

Provide CPR HLTAID009
Learn the skills and knowledge required to perform cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines. CPR can provide the means to keep a person alive long enough to receive professional medical attention. Knowing CPR – and performing it properly – can make the difference between life and death. 

Provide First Aid HLTAID011
Previously referred to as Senior First Aid or Apply First Aid, this course is now recognised as Provide First Aid. This is the most common accredited first aid course for those that require a first aid certificate for employment or other reasons.
