The Provide First Aid in an Education & Care Setting course provides the participant with the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in an education & care setting.
Participants may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations‚ including community and workplace settings. This course will provide participants with the ability to recognise basic signs and symptoms of various illnesses and injury and subsequent provision of appropriate treatment or assistance. The course focus includes CPR‚ treatment of common medical conditions and situation recognition and management.
This course requires practical application of Resuscitation that will require kneeling on the floor and a range of practical scenarios with candidates on the floor.

Participants are required to complete a Pre-Course Workbook before the face-to-face course. This may be completed online or paper-based. Your Trainer will provide you with the information to successfully complete your Pre-Course Workbook.
Participants are then required to attend the face-to-face component to complete the practical assessment.

• Photo Identification (i.e. Drivers Licence)
• Your Unique Student Identifier (www.usi.gov.au)
• Your First Aid Manual
