First Aid Course Tweed Heads

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

The HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course is your key to mastering vital emergency first aid response skills. This essential training equips you to handle emergencies, accidents, and critical situations effectively.

In an STC course, you’ll gain hands-on experience in crucial first aid techniques, including wound cleaning and dressing, proper Epi-Pen usage, the significance of the recovery position, basic emergency life support, and effective communication during emergency calls to optimise professional responder assistance. Additionally, the course covers safe management of various first aid scenarios like:

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

Our training involves three hours of immersive, in-person instruction. Each session is a mix of course material readings, presentations, and hands-on practical exercises, culminating in an assessment. Successful completion earns you a nationally recognised first aid certificate as proof of your readiness to handle first aid emergencies.

First aid and CPR expertise are essential. Unforeseen medical crises can occur, and lacking these vital skills may hinder your ability to offer necessary aid. In critical moments, there’s no opportunity to search for guidance—you must have these abilities deeply ingrained.

WHO NEEDS A FIRST AID COURSE?

Enrolling in a first aid course is a vital step for everyone, and its importance is unparalleled. This training empowers you to be the difference-maker in critical moments. Emergencies are unpredictable, occurring anywhere – from the workplace to the streets, at any unexpected time. Armed with first aid knowledge, you have the capability to intervene and provide aid in crisis situations.

First aid skills are indispensable across all work environments, not just in healthcare professions like doctors, nurses, or paramedics. Whether it’s an office, a school, or even at home, first aid proficiency is universally beneficial, transcending all job roles.

If you’ve already taken a first aid course, think about advancing your skills through further training. This ensures you remain at the top of your game, ready to confidently handle any first aid scenario. We offer specialised courses like advanced first aid and child care first aid to broaden your expertise.

CPR Course Tweed Heads

Known officially as HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, our CPR course is meticulously crafted to teach participants to identify cardiac emergencies and safely execute life-saving interventions.

While CPR is a critical component of first aid, it stands as a distinct skill set. Our focused CPR course caters to those who may already be versed in general first aid but lack CPR knowledge, or for those with tight schedules who still wish to make an effective contribution in emergencies.

In this course, you’ll master the procedures for performing CPR, learn mnemonics to retain these steps long-term, and understand the nuances between administering CPR to adults and children. Upon completing the 90-minute in-person training, you’ll earn a nationally recognised statement of attainment as evidence of your new capabilities in this vital emergency technique.

Tweed Heads CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) strongly recommends refreshing CPR training every twelve months to maintain ingrained critical skills. In an emergency demanding CPR, relying on automatic skills is crucial—you wouldn’t want to grapple with recalling what to do.

A CPR refresher course is the same as a regular CPR course in every respect. 

Enrolment & Eligibility

Skills Training College’s courses in first aid and CPR require no previous academic or professional qualifications necessary to enrol. However, all students must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Basic written and verbal English is needed to engage with the course materials and complete the training and assessment activities.
  • All students must be 18 years old or provide acceptable permission from a parent or guardian.
  • 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.
  • A reasonable level of fitness and physical ability.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A first aid certificate doesn’t have an expiration date. Nonetheless, as first aid practices continuously develop, it’s highly advisable to undergo refresher training every three years. This guarantees that your expertise and understanding stay up-to-date.

Skills Training College in Tweed Heads provides refresher first aid courses, ensuring that your knowledge in first aid remains current and reliable.

Similar to a first aid certificate, CPR training doesn’t have a strict expiration but requires regular updates through refresher training.

Yes, STC offers online training alternatives for those seeking flexible learning options in CPR and first aid courses, especially when face to face training isn’t feasible. However, STC typically advises that its Tweed Heads training location is the best place to receive instruction.

These courses are assessed through practical training and assessment activities.

First aid courses evaluate your knowledge and skills in responding to first aid situations. These assessments typically include demonstrating your capability to administer basic emergency life support. Additionally, there might be written evaluations to assess your understanding.

On the other hand, CPR assessment primarily focuses on observing your proficiency in performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques. This evaluation centers specifically on your practical ability to execute CPR procedures effectively.

Absolutely, the importance of taking a first aid or CPR course extends far beyond just medical professionals. Acquiring these crucial, life-saving skills can empower individuals to make a significant difference during emergencies.

For those who work with children, whether in educational settings or at home, having a first aid or CPR certificate is especially valuable due to the unpredictable nature of emergencies.

Moreover, emergencies can arise anywhere, even within office environments. Thus, we strongly advocate for workplace first aid training to ensure preparedness in handling diverse emergency situations. Acquiring First Aid and CPR training showcases dedication and commitment to the workplace and can open doors for ongoing professional development.

Taking a CPR course is a component of acquiring a first aid certification. Therefore, a first aid qualification can be viewed as a continuation of learning from a CPR course. Advanced resuscitation qualifications are also an extension of this learning trajectory.

Engaging in a first aid course provides opportunities for further education within the first aid domain. Some advanced first aid courses encompass:

  • 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
