HLTAID011 Provide first aid, previously known as Senior First Aid or Level 2 First Aid covers the skills required to respond to and manage a broad range of medical emergencies. This program incorporates the HLTAID009 Cardiopulmonary resuscitation unit HLTAID010 provide basic emergency life support.

The online training and assessment pre-requisite will be sent via a link upon enrolment.  This can be done  in your own time before attending this one (1) day face to face program that incorporates realistic scenarios that will help you manage a real life emergency. This online training is not compatible with a smartphone, so we recommend that you have access to an alternate device. For those that do not have access to a Tablet or PC or Internet can have access to  hardcopy prerequisite training and assessment materials.

Learners undertaking the training in this unit must demonstrate CPR on an adult & infant resuscitation manikin on the floor. The infant manikin resuscitation is performed on a table.

Please note there is a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be a risk.

Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.
