First Aid Course COOLUM

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Taking the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course is a smart move if you want to be ready for emergencies. This course teaches you how to handle accidents and other serious situations effectively.

In our first aid and CPR courses Coolum, you’ll master important skills like cleaning and dressing wounds, using an Epi-Pen correctly, and initiating the recovery position. You’ll also learn how to give basic emergency life support and describe an emergency situation over the phone to medical professionals.

Plus, we cover how to safely manage situations like:

  • Vomiting

  • Choking

  • Asthma

  • Bleeding

  • Anaphylaxis

  • Shock

  • Broken bones

  • Dislocations, fractures, sprains, and strains

Our first aid training includes three hours of in-person, hands-on learning. During this time, you’ll go through readings, watch presentations, participate in practical activities, and complete assessments. Once you finish the course successfully, you’ll receive nationally recognised first aid certification.

WHO NEEDS A FIRST AID COURSE?

A first aid course is something everyone should consider. Its importance is huge. By taking a first aid course, you’ll be ready to make a big difference when it really counts. Emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time—at work, on the street, or even at home. Knowing first aid gives you the power to step in and help during a crisis.

First aid isn’t just for doctors, nurses, paramedics, or other healthcare workers. It’s crucial in any workplace and beyond. Emergencies can happen no matter your profession, having a first aid certificate is always a plus.

If you’ve already taken a first aid course, think about further studies to keep your skills sharp and ready for any situation. We also offer specialised training such as advanced first aid courses and child first aid courses to help you expand your knowledge.

CPR Course COOLUM

The nationally accredited CPR course is HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. This training teaches you how to recognise a cardiac emergency and the steps needed to intervene safely, providing a quality first aid response.

While CPR is a part of first aid, it’s also a specialised skill on its own. This course is great for those who already know first aid but want to learn CPR, or for those who don’t have the time for a full first aid course but still want to be able to help in an emergency.

In a CPR course, you’ll learn the steps to perform CPR, mnemonic devices to help you remember these steps, and how to perform CPR on both adults and children.

After completing the 90-minute in-person training, you’ll get a nationally recognised statement of attainment that validates your new skills and knowledge.

COOLUM CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) strongly advises refreshing CPR training annually to ensure these vital skills remain second nature. In an emergency where CPR is needed, you don’t want to struggle to recall the steps; you need the skills to be instinctive.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, a first aid certificate does not expire. However, first aid practices are continuously evolving, so it is strongly recommended to take refresher training every three years to keep your skills and knowledge up-to-date.

Skills Training College offers refresher first aid courses in Coolum to help you keep your knowledge and skills current.

As with a first aid certificate, CPR training does not have an expiry date but it should be regularly updated with refresher courses. The Australian Resuscitation Council strongly recommends taking CPR refresher training every twelve months.

If your first aid certification is misplaced or stolen, just contact us, and we will guide you through the steps to obtain a replacement.

Skills training College does offer blended training options where theoretical components of CPR or first aid courses can be completed at your own convenience online. However, both first aid and CPR require practical skills which can only be evaluated through face-to-face training and assessment activities. As such, our first aid Coolum courses must be completed on site.

Completing a CPR course is an integral part of obtaining a first aid certification, making a first aid qualification a natural progression from a CPR course. Advanced resuscitation qualifications are another pathway.

Finishing a first aid course opens several pathways to further learning in the field of first aid. These advanced courses include:

  • HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting

  • HLTAID013 Provide First Aid in a remote or isolated site

  • HLTAID014 Provide Advanced First Aid

  • HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy

  • HLTAID016 Manage first aid services and resources

Please note that not all of these qualifications are available through Skills Training College.

These courses are assessed through practical training and assessment tasks.

You will be tested on your first aid knowledge and skills. As well as a short written evaluation, you will assessed on your ability to provide basic emergency life support.

CPR assessment only consists of being observed for your ability to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation on both adult and child manikins.
