About This Course

This course teaches the skills and knowledge required to recognise and respond to life-threatening emergencies and provide a first aid response to a casualty in a range of situations.

Suitable for people in workplaces and members of the public who require a comprehensive first aid course. Previously known as HLTAID003, Senior First Aid, Workplace Level 2, and Apply First Aid. Includes CPR.

The course topics include the DRSABCD action plan and responding to emergency situations, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), burns, asthma, anaphylaxis, sprains and strains.

This course is taught by St John trainers with over 100 years of combined experience and backgrounds in Nursing, Education and Leadership. They are ready to share their experience and passion with you that creates confidence to perform first aid should you ever need to.

About Virtual Classroom Training

The Provide First Aid virtual classroom option happens in a live online video conference, which provides the benefit of the live classroom environment, but in the comfort of your own home or workplace.

The class requires pre-learning and may be best suited to those who have done first aid before. It has the same physical requirements of a face to face class, including performing CPR on a manikin on the floor and all other practical exercises, which will be conducted on a mock casualty. Learn more about our virtual classroom courses here.

  • 100% Online: all course equipment (e.g. adult manikin, baby manikin, EpiPen trainer, placebo inhaler, spacer, bandages, first aid kit) and bandages sent to your home or workplace for you to keep
