Whether you’re looking to start a new role, strengthen your existing abilities or learn a new skill for personal reasons, there’s no better time to get involved in first aid courses.
Nationally recognised First Aid courses are highly sought after by employers. Every workplace needs an individual that can respond to life-threatening emergencies when required. A first aid qualification is an excellent way to set yourself apart from other candidates.
But with so many first aid courses available, how do you know which training course is right for you? Let’s examine the different courses available and then look at how to choose the course that suits your needs.
What are the types of first aid certificates in Australia?
In 2021, the Australian government revamped the HLTAID courses to represent evolving medical best practices. Here are some of the core certifications offered by nationally accredited training organisations today:
- HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
- HLTAID010 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support
- HLTAID011 Provide First Aid
- HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting
- HLTAID013 Provide First Aid in remote or isolated site
- HLTAID014 Provide Advanced First Aid
- HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation
- HLTAID016 Manage first aid services and resources
For most people not in a specialised role, HLTAID011 will provide all necessary knowledge required to respond to emergencies. The HLTAID011 course also encompasses the training content from HLTAID009.
Note: HLTAID011 is the minimum requirement to be a registered first aider in the workplace.
What should I look for in a first aid course?
When searching for a first aid course, there are many factors to consider. In a top-class first aid course, you should expect:
- To receive expert guidance from a nationally recognised training team.
- To be supported throughout the process.
- To have the opportunity to practise the skills required in person.
- To feel confident applying your knowledge to real situations.
- To know what your options are as an accomplished first aider.
