First Aid Course Launceston


The HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course is crucial for acquiring skills to handle emergencies, accidents, and critical situations. In this course, you’ll gain knowledge in emergency first aid response, including essential skills such as wound cleaning and dressing, effective use of an Epi-Pen, understanding the significance of the recovery position, providing basic emergency life support, and clearly communicating emergency details over the phone to assist responders efficiently. Additionally, the course equips you with the competency to safely manage various first aid scenarios such as:

  • Vomiting

  • Choking

  • Asthma

  • Bleeding

  • Anaphylaxis

  • Shock

  • Broken bones

Upon successful completion, participants receive a nationally recognised first aid certificate.


Enrolling in a first aid course is imperative for everyone. Participating in a first aid course equips you to make potentially life saving contributions during critical moments. Emergencies can unfold anywhere – in the workplace, on the street, or at any conceivable location and time. Mastery of first aid skills grants you the capability to actively intervene and provide aid in crisis scenarios.

First aid training is crucial in all types of workplaces, extending beyond the realms of doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other healthcare workers and is invaluable across all professions.

First aid and CPR training are indispensable skills. In the event of a medical emergency, having this knowledge is crucial, as there’s no time to search for instructions. The best way to be prepared is through accredited training.

If you have already have a first aid certification 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 childcare first aid courses.

CPR Course Launceston

The designated title for a CPR course is HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. This course trains students in identifying cardiac emergencies and the essential actions for safe intervention.

While CPR is a component of first aid, it stands as a distinct skill set. The concentrated focus of a CPR course benefits those who are familiar with first aid but lack CPR knowledge, or for individuals who want to contribute in emergencies but can’t accommodate a full first aid course in their hectic schedules.

Participating in a CPR course, you’ll master the necessary steps to perform CPR, learn mnemonic devices to retain CPR techniques long after course completion, and understand the variations in administering CPR to adults and children. Completing the 90-minute in-person training rewards you with a nationally recognised statement of attainment, certifying your newly acquired skills and knowledge.

Launceston CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) strongly recommends that CPR training be retaken every twelve months to ensure that the critical skills remain second nature. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation 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 covers the same skills and knowledge as a regular CPR course in every respect. Courses last for 90 minutes, cost $39 per person, and are conducted from our training room at Launceston Conference Centre, 50 Glen Dhu St, South Launceston, easily accessible by car with ample parking options. 

Enrolment & Eligibility

At Skills Training College, our first aid and CPR courses have minimal entry prerequisites. There’s no need for prior academic or professional qualifications to enroll. However, students must fulfill these essential criteria:

  • The ability to understand and communicate in basic written and verbal English is crucial for engaging with course content and successfully completing training and assessment activities.

  • Participants must be at least 18 years old, or possess appropriate consent from a parent or legal guardian.

  • A Unique Student Identifier (USI) Number is required for all students. If you have previously undertaken any study, you might already possess one, which can be retrieved through an online search.

  • A fundamental level of physical fitness and capability is also necessary.

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 Launceston to ensure your first aid experience never falls behind.

Like a first aid certificate, CPR training does not technically expire but should be updated regularly with refresher training. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends taking CPR refresher training every twelve months.

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 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. First Aid and CPR training shows your commitment and passion to your workplace and can help open pathways to continuing professional development.

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.
