First Aid Course Melbourne CBD

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Enrol in the HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course to master essential skills for handling emergencies, accidents, and life-threatening incidents. You’ll learn emergency first aid response skills such as wound cleaning and dressing, how to correctly use an Epi-Pen, the use of the recovery position, how to provide basic emergency life support, and how to describe an emergency situation over the phone to best assist emergency responders. You’ll also learn how to safely manage first aid situations like:

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

Our training in first aid involves three hours of direct, interactive instruction. Each session includes a mix of reading material, presentations, and hands-on exercises, finishing with assessment tasks. After successfully completing the course, participants receive a nationally recognised certificate in first aid.

WHO NEEDS A FIRST AID COURSE?

Everyone should consider enrolling in a first aid course, as its value is immense and universally applicable. Learning first aid empowers you to become a crucial first aid responder in critical situations. Emergencies can arise anywhere – be it at work, on the streets, or at home. With first aid knowledge, you are equipped to intervene effectively during serious events.

In such critical situations, there isn’t time to search for first aid procedures; you need to have this knowledge ingrained, and the best way to achieve this is through accredited training.

First aid training is not exclusive to healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, or paramedics. It is equally important across various settings, including offices, schools, hospitality and construction sites. People in all professions can find value in having first aid skills.

If you have already completed a first aid course consider taking further studies to ensure your skills are at their very best and that you can truly step into any first aid situation. Other STC training specialties include our advanced first aid course and child care first aid courses.

CPR Course Melbourne CBD

The designated name for a CPR course is HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. This course aims to equip students with the ability to identify cardiac emergencies and the essential techniques for safe intervention.

CPR is a critical component of first aid, yet it stands as a distinct skill set. The focused curriculum of a CPR course benefits those who are already versed in first aid but lack CPR skills, or for individuals who may not have the time to commit to a comprehensive first aid course but still wish to contribute positively in emergency situations.

In the CPR course, participants will learn the procedures for performing CPR, including mnemonic tools to retain the steps long after course completion, and understanding the variations in performing CPR on adults versus children. Completing the 90-minute in-person training session will earn you a nationally recognised statement of attainment, certifying your skills and knowledge in CPR.

Skills Training College’s Melbourne CBD CPR courses are conducted from our training venue at Atlantis Hotel, 300 Spencer St, Melbourne CBD. Our first aid courses are available for $39 per person.

Melbourne CBD CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) advises that CPR training should be renewed annually to keep these vital skills sharp and instinctive. In an emergency where CPR is necessary, it’s crucial that these skills are automatic, eliminating any hesitation or difficulty in recalling the procedures.

A CPR refresher course is identical to a standard CPR course in all aspects. Courses last for 90 minutes, cost $39 per person, and are conducted from our training room at Atlantis Hotel, 300 Spencer St, Melbourne CBD.

Enrolment & Eligibility

Skills Training College’s courses in first aid and CPR have virtually no entry requirements for students. There are no previous academic or professional qualifications necessary to enrol. However, all students must meet the following minimum criteria to enrol in a first aid course:

  • Basic written and verbal English is needed to engage with the course materials and complete the training and assessment activities.
  • Students must be at least 14 years of age. Any student under the age of 18 must submit a signed Parental Consent Form at least 48 hours before commencement of training.
  • Students require a Unique Student Identifier (USI) Number. If you’ve studied before you may already have one which you can find by searching online.
  • Basic levels of fitness and physical ability.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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 Melbourne CBD 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.

Accordion Content

Absolutely. Beyond the vital life-saving skills you acquire, holding a first aid or CPR certification can enhance your professional profile. Employers across various sectors value these certifications as they demonstrate responsibility, readiness to handle emergencies, and a commitment to workplace safety.

First Aid and CPR skills are especially advantageous in environments like schools, construction sites, and offices, where quick emergency response can be crucial. Additionally, these certifications can open doors to further professional development and career advancement opportunities.

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 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.
