First Aid Course Kingston


The course that teaches the skills for responding to emergencies, accidents and other life-threatening situations is officially known as ‘HLTAID011 Provide First Aid’ and it is essential to take this course to learn emergency first aid response skills. Some of the skills you will learn include wound cleaning and dressing, correct usage of an Epi-Pen, the importance of the recovery position, providing basic emergency life support and accurately describing an emergency over the phone to best assist emergency responders.

You’ll also learn how to safely manage the following first aid situations:

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

Our first aid training courses include three (3) hours of in-person, hands-on training. During your session, you will engage in various readings, presentations, and practical activities. The training will conclude with assessment activities. After completing the course, you will receive a nationally recognised first aid certificate.


By enrolling in a first aid course, you can make a substantial difference when the need arises because emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime, whether it be at the workplace, on the street, or elsewhere. Acquiring knowledge about first aid will empower you to act and help during critical situations.

First aid is crucial in any workplace, not limited to healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, and paramedics. Emergencies can happen anywhere, including offices, schools and homes. Having a first aid certificate can be beneficial to any profession.

You don’t want to waste time looking up how to do it, which is why taking a course is crucial.

If you have already completed a first aid course consider taking further studies to ensure your skills are at their peak and that you can truly step into any first aid situation. Our other specialties include our advanced first aid course and child first aid courses.

CPR Course Kingston

The official name for the CPR course is HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and this course is designed to teach students how to recognise when a cardiac emergency is occurring and the steps to intervene safely.

The more specific focus of this CPR course is for anyone who already knows basic first aid but does not know advanced CPR techniques, or who does not have enough time for an advanced first aid course.

When you take our CPR course you’ll learn the steps required to perform CPR, some mnemonic devices to help you remember the steps of CPR and the differences in performing CPR for adults versus children and babies. After your 90-minute hands-on training, you’ll be awarded your nationally recognised statement of attainment, proving your newfound skills and knowledge.

Skills Training College’s Kingston CPR courses are conducted from our training venue at 7 Goshawk Way, Kingston. We also offer training from our other locations in Tasmania including Glenorchy, Sorell, Launceston and North Hobart. Our first aid courses are available for $39 per person.

Kingston CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) strongly recommend CPR training is retaken every twelve months at minimum to ensure that the critical skills remain fresh, while some professions recommend complete first aid retraining every 3 years to cover any technological or technique advancements. If you ever find yourself in an emergency where CPR is required, you don’t want to struggle to remember what to do, you need the skills to be innate.

A CPR refresher course is the same as a regular CPR course in every regard. Courses last 90 minutes, cost $39 per person, and are conducted from our training room at 7 Goshawk Way, Kingston.

Enrolment & Eligibility

No, a first aid certificate does not expire. However, first aid is constantly changing and evolving, and as such it is strongly recommended that first aid refresher training be taken every three years to ensure that your skills and knowledge remain current.

Skills Training College offers refresher first aid courses in Kingston to ensure your first aid experience never falls behind.

‘HLTAID009 Provides cardiopulmonary resuscitation’ actually supersedes ‘HLTAID001 Provides cardiopulmonary resuscitation,’ those with the HLTAID009 qualification will be unable to renew this qualification under this same name, but to all relevant persons HLTAID001 serves the same function.

The Skills Training College class can take just a few hours in person but does have online components that can be completed online prior to beginning your in-person training.

Skills Training College is an Australian Registered Training Organisation and offers nationally based first aid training that meets the ASQA guidelines and Australian federal government requirements for a qualification that is acknowledged in all states and territories.

Completing a CPR course is part of a first aid certification. As such, a first aid qualification can be considered further learning from a CPR course. Advanced resuscitation qualifications are another example.

Completing a first aid course opens up several avenues of further learning in the field of first aid. These advanced first aid 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

Not all of these qualifications are available through Skills Training College.

These courses are assessed through practical training and assessment activities.

First aid courses test your first aid response knowledge and first aid skills. Skills you will be tested on include your ability to provide basic emergency life support. There may also be a written evaluation.

CPR assessment consists entirely of being observed on your ability to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Anyone and everyone should take a first aid or CPR course, not just medical professionals. Knowing these vital, life-saving skills can help you make a real difference on the scene of an emergency.

Outside of medical and healthcare professionals, a first aid or CPR certificate is particularly beneficial to anyone who works with children, whether it’s at home or in one of the country’s education sectors.

Emergencies can occur anywhere, even around the office. As such, we also highly recommend first aid workplace training to ensure you’re ready to assist in a first aid situation, no matter what the emergency is.
