HLTAID003 (includes HLTAID001 – Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
First Aid Training is a requirement for all students studying the Certificate III in Fitness & Certificate III in Sports Trainer. This Nationally Recognised 1 day First Aid course is delivered by Australian Fitness Academy at regular times throughout the year in Melbourne.
The course is conducted in 2 stages:
- Online Component
- Practical Application
The online component takes approximately 4 hours to complete and must be completed prior to the practical day. It is not possible to attend the training day without having completed the online component. You require 80% or more to pass each of the 4 modules covered online. If you are attending just for your CPR Update there is no need to complete the online component prior to the practical day.
The practical day runs from 9am – 4pm and is a practical day of fun. Covering a number of scenarios and practical applications, this day allows you to consolidate what you have learned in the workbook in a ‘hands on’ manner. You will be taught and practice CPR on manikins and run through different emergency scenarios that may occur in everyday life, while exercising or on the sporting field / court.
The aim of this First Aid course is to develop your competence and confidence in providing emergency first aid. This includes calling for help, the ability to respond to first aid situations, casualty assessment, decision-making, and basic life support functions including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This course covers adult and infant conditions.
You are assessed throughout the day and assisted through all first aid competencies as the day progresses.
