Our emergency first aid training course consists of three (3) hours of in-person, hands-on training.

The importance of learning first aid cannot be overstated. By taking a first aid course you will be able to provide basic emergency life support, and be able make a difference when it really matters.
Emergencies can occur in the workplace, out on the street, in a school or education and care setting, at any place or any time you can think of. Knowing first aid practices puts the power to step in and assist in your hands.
HLTAID011 Provide First Aid is essential to any workplace. It’s not just for doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other healthcare workers. There’s no person to whom a first aid certificate is not beneficial in some way.
The official name for this course and the qualification it awards is HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Its main objective is to teach students how to recognise a cardiac emergency and take the necessary steps to intervene safely.
CPR is a crucial aspect of first aid, but has its own set of skills and knowledge. The course is designed for individuals who already know first aid but need to learn CPR or who have a busy schedule which doesn’t allow them to take a full course.
During this course, you will learn the steps required to provide CPR confidently, use mnemonic devices to remember the steps for an extended period, and will come to understand the differences in performing CPR for adults and children.
After completing the 90-minute face-to-face training, you will receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment, proving your skills and knowledge in CPR.
The Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines strongly recommend that HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation training be retaken every twelve months to ensure your knowledge of CPR techniques remains both innate and up-to-date.
Many organisations will require you to take this refresher training to adhere to their first aid compliance policies. If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation where you need to provide CPR, you don’t want to struggle to remember what to do, you need these skills to be second nature.
Skills Training College offers first aid and CPR courses with minimal prerequisites. No prior academic or professional qualifications are required for enrollment. Nevertheless, students must fulfill these basic criteria:
Skills Training College stands as a premier registered training organisation, providing top-tier first aid and CPR courses throughout Australia. Here are compelling reasons to select us for your first aid certification:
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 courses to ensure your first aid experience never falls behind.
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.
First aid instruction is assessed through practical assessment activities.
To ensure you have the knowledge required, after a first aid course we test your emergency first aid response knowledge and first aid skills. After completing your face-to-face training, skills you will be tested on include your ability to respond effectively and provide basic emergency life support, your ability and knowledge of first aid techniques, your emergency first aid response skills, and your ability to provide first aid assistance in a realistic first aid emergency. There may also be a written evaluation.
CPR assessment consists entirely of observing your ability to perform CPR under supervision.
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.
Outside of medical and healthcare professionals, a first aid certificate is particularly beneficial to anyone who works in child care, whether it’s at home or education workers in a school.
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 situation is. First aid and CPR training shows your commitment and passion to your workplace, and can help open pathways to continuing professional development. First aid classes really are for everyone.
Completing CPR is part of a first aid certification. As such, our first aid qualification can be considered further learning from CPR.
