Welcome to the First Aid information page.

If you are studying Individual Support qualification you are required to complete module HLTAID003 – Provide first aid, and if you are studying Early Childhood Education and Care qualification you are required to complete HLTAID004 – Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting.

Your trainer will advise you which module is the right one for your qualification. The first aid training module has two components, a theoretical and a practical component. You must successfully complete both parts of the training in order to be competent in this unit. The theoretical component of the training must be completed prior to commencing the hands-on practical training.

If you have previously completed a first aid module with another provider, you need to bring documented proof of your training to the college for verification.  This can be provided through a transcript that is no more than three years old.  The transcript should state the course code and course description. If you fail to provide the relevant documents, you will be required to complete the training as a requirement of the qualification.

This part of the course enables you to undertake the theoretical part of the module, which is presented as a series of nine quizzes for HLTAID011 and 10 quizzes for HLTAID004.
