HLTAID012 Provide first aid in an education and care setting (previously HLTAID004)

Public Training Booking
This unit of competency (previously known as HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting) describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to infants, children and adults.
The unit applies to educators and support staff working within an education and care setting who are required to respond to a first aid emergency, including asthmatic and anaphylactic emergencies. This unit of competency may contribute towards approved first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis training under the Education and Care Services National Law, and the Education and Care Services National Regulations (2011).
The CPR training component will train students to care for and manage a person in cardiac arrest and provide quality instructional skills on life support (correct ratio of rescue breathing to chest compressions). Each student will have their own manikin to ventilate and compress the chest to perfect their technique.
This course is also suitable for parents, grandparents or babysitters wanting infant and child specific first aid training.

More About This Course
Your trainer will be either a nurse or a paramedic - there can be no better trainer than one who has "lived" the experience. As a trusted health professional, they will teach the "why" of first aid and are committed to you leaving your course with confidence and competence.

Our training will help you to provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting and some of the topics covered are below:

  • Bleeding and shock

  • Head injuries

  • Poisoning

  • Respiratory distress, including asthma and anaphylaxis

  • Seizures and convulsions, including febrile convulsions and epilepsy

  • Fractures

  • Sprains and strains using arm slings roller bandages or other appropriate immobilisation principles techniques

Anyone over the age of 14 years are eligible to attend. Students attending the course are required to demonstrate their physical ability to perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor. This is a requirement of the unit and not of Premium Health. If you are unsure of your ability to demonstrate this requirement please contact us on 1300 721 292.

I have been in the Police Force for 23 years and never in my career have I ever experienced such a knowledgeable, engaging and friendly first aid instructor than I have today. I have also never felt so confident and competent in my ability to administer first aid as a result of today’s training.
