FIRST AID COURSE Geelong Experts

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

The HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course is an essential training programme for building the skills to respond to emergencies. Our first aid training Geelong course teaches various emergency response skills, such as proper wound cleaning and dressing techniques, using an Epi-Pen correctly, the importance of the recovery position, and effectively communicating an emergency situation over the phone to assist emergency responders. Other first aid scenarios this course will teach you how to manage include:

  • Vomiting
  • Choking
  • Asthma
  • Bleeding
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Shock
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocations, fractures, sprains, and strains

Our first aid training courses involve three hours of direct, practical instruction under the guidance of one of our expert trainers. You’ll be walked through some theoretical readings and presentations, some practical training activities, and conclude your day with a practical assessment administered by your trainer. Upon successful completion, participants receive a nationally recognised first aid certificate, signifying their readiness to handle any emergency situation that life can throw at them.

Regardless of who you are, being proactive in learning first aid is crucial. Medical emergencies can occur without warning. In a real-life emergency situation, there’s no time to research how to administer first aid on the spot; you must have this knowledge in advance. The best, and really the only way to be prepared is to acquire it with an accredited first aid course.

WHO NEEDS A FIRST AID COURSE?

Enrolling in a first aid course is something that everyone should do. Learning first aid equips you to be an effective responder in any situation. Emergencies can occur anywhere, including the workplace, out on the street, at home, or anywhere else that you can imagine.

First aid is an essential skill for any job, not just for medical professionals. Anyone can be called on to deliver a first aid response, and the only way to be effective is to know what you’re doing by taking a first aid course.

CPR Course Geelong

Officially known as HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, this CPR training course teaches students how to identify when CPR is necessary, and the life-saving steps that they’ll need to take in order to deliver a safe and effective intervention.

While CPR is a component of first aid, it is also a skill in its own right. This course is designed for those students who may already know general first aid skills but who lack CPR training, or for those who do not have the time to undertake a full first aid training course but still wish to be able to respond in emergency situations in some capacity. It is also perfect for those who need to refresh their existing CPR skills to keep them second nature.

In Skills Training College’s CPR course, participants will learn the steps for performing CPR and how CPR techniques differ between adults and children. After completing this 90-minute in-person training and demonstrating their CPR skills with a practical assessment, they will receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment.

Enrolment & Eligibility

Skills Training College’s first aid and CPR courses have no prerequisites for you to enrol. However, all students must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Basic skills in written and verbal English are required to understand and engage with the course materials.
  • All students must be 18 years old. Students as young as 14 may enrol if they have permission from a parent or guardian.
  • Students will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. If you’ve previously studied, you should already have one, and if you’re not sure what yours is, you can find it online.
  • Basic degree of fitness and physical capability.

Geelong CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recommends retaking CPR training yearly to keep these critical skills up to date. In an emergency requiring CPR, it is vital that these abilities are instinctive; you need to be able to remember how to perform CPR without thinking so that you can take immediate action.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No, a first aid certificate does not technically expire. However, because first aid is always changing and improving, you are strongly advised to attend refresher training every three years to ensure that your skills and knowledge are updated with the latest techniques.

Skills Training College provides refresher first aid courses in Geelong to ensure your knowledge stays up to date.

CPR training, as with first aid training, does not technically expire but should still be renewed regularly through refresher training. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends CPR refresher training every 12 months. However, it is each student’s own responsibility to seek out and take refresher training.
