This unit teaches the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty and any community or workplace setting. Participants will learn how to:
- Identify, assess & minimise hazards in a situation that may pose a risk of injury or illness to self or others
- Use available resources & equipment to make the casualty as comfortable as possible
- Provide first aid management in accordance with established first aid principles & Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines
Assessment is delivered in the form of short answer and multiple-choice theory questions, performance tasks and simulated practical scenarios utilising a CPR manikin and first aid equipment.
Students who have never completed a first aid course or have not participated in a course for over 4 years will need to complete a workbook (provided alongside a first aid manual) prior to the course and bring it completed to the training session.
Participants must show they are physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an adult CPR manikin placed on the floor.
