First Aid Course Whyalla


The first aid course Skills Training College offers is officially known as HLTAID011 Provide First Aid and follows the Queensland Government criteria to credit the student with a nationally recognised qualification. This course is indispensable for gaining the skills required to effectively deal with emergencies, accidents and other life-threatening situations. Our courses cover a range of emergency first aid response skills, including wound cleaning and dressing, proper Epi-Pen usage, understanding the importance of the recovery position, providing basic emergency life support, and effectively describing emergencies when contacting 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 courses include three (3) hours of in-person, hands-on training. During your session, you will engage in different readings, presentations and practical activities. The session will end with assessment activities. Once you complete the course, you will receive a nationally recognised first aid certificate.


Anyone and everyone should prioritise taking a first aid course and its value cannot be over emphasised. Enrolling in a first aid course can have a significant impact in critical situations. The possibility of emergencies exists in the workplace, on the street, or in any location, so acquiring first aid skills allows you to take control and provide assistance when emergencies occur.

Every workplace needs to have first aid available, not just doctors, nurses, paramedics and other healthcare professionals. First aid emergencies have the potential to happen in various locations like the office, schools and even at home, so there’s no profession to whom first aid certificates are not beneficial.

If you do not possess these vital and practical skills, you might not be able to assist when needed. During such critical moments, you will not have enough time to research and discover how to perform first aid. Therefore, it is essential to take a course to learn the necessary skills ahead of time.

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 Whyalla

The CPR course, officially known as HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, teaches students to recognise cardiac emergencies and safely intervene.

Performing CPR is a crucial element of first aid. However, it requires specialised training. CPR courses are designed for individuals who are already familiar with first aid but lack that specific knowledge of advanced CPR techniques. It is also beneficial for those with busy schedules who cannot commit to a full first aid course but still want to be equipped to handle emergencies.

By taking a CPR course with STC, you will learn the necessary steps to perform CPR like mnemonic devices that will help you remember them for years after completing the course. You will also learn about the differences between performing CPR for adults and children. After completing the 90-minute face-to-face training course, you will receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment, which will prove your newly acquired skills and knowledge.

Skills Training College’s Whyalla CPR courses are conducted from our training venue at 100 Mcdouall Stuart Ave, Whyalla Norrie. We also offer training from our other locations in South Australia including Adelaide, Elizabeth, Glenelg, Modbury, Morphett Vale, Mount Barker, Munno Para, Murray Bridge, Pooraka, Port Adelaide, Port Augusta and Salisbury. Our first aid courses are available for $39 per person.

Whyalla CPR Refresher Course

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) highly recommends individuals refresh their CPR training every twelve months to ensure that they retain the critical skills that are required during an emergency. If someone ever finds themselves in a situation where CPR is required, struggling to remember what to do could be potentially life-threatening. Thus, it is important to keep the skills innate and updated to save lives.

A CPR refresher course is the same as a regular CPR course in every regard. Courses last for 90 minutes, cost $39 per person, and are conducted from our training room at 100 Mcdouall Stuart Ave, Whyalla Norrie.

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 Whyalla to ensure your first aid experience never falls behind.

The suggested interval for CPR refresher training sessions is typically every year to ensure that individuals are equipped with the most current information, while some professions require a total refresher every 3 years.

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.

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.
