(HLTAID003)

This course applies to a wide range of settings where first aid emergencies may occur. It is relevant for people working in education, aged and community care, sport, outdoor recreation, travel & tourism, hospitality, industry enterprises as well as in home or other environments. It incorporates Provide CPR (HLTAID001) and will give you a Nationally Recognised Certificate valid for 3 years. It is recommended by the Australian Resuscitation Council that CPR is updated annually. .

Duration

7 hours (1 day) classroom training and assessment (with online or workbook pre-work). Other flexible arrangements can be made by contacting us.

Course Prerequisites

No course pre-requisite units. Minimum age 14.

Assessment

Progressive assessment throughout the course, including demonstration of practical skills and written and oral questions relating to underpinning knowledge.

Performance Evidence

Followed DRSABCD in line with ARC guidelines, including:

  • performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
  • performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
  • responded appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • managed the unconscious breathing casualty
  • followed single rescue procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  • followed the prompts of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Responded to at least two simulated first aid scenarios contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting, including:
  • conducted a visual and verbal assessment of the casualty
  • demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  • post-incident debrief and evaluation
  • provided an accurate verbal or written report of the incident

 

Apply First Aid Procedures

Applied first aid procedures for the following:

  • allergic reaction
  • anaphylaxis
  • bleeding control
  • choking and airway obstruction
  • envenomation, using pressure immobilisation
  • fractures, sprains and strains, using arm slings, roller bandages or other appropriate immobilisation techniques
  • respiratory distress, including asthma
  • shock

 

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate essential knowledge required to effectively complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the work role. This includes knowledge of:

  • State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures including:
  • ARC Guidelines relevant to provision of CPR and first aid
  • safe work practices to minimise risks and potential hazards
  • infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions
  • requirements for currency of skill and knowledge
  • legal, workplace and community considerations including:
  • awareness of potential need for stress-management techniques and available support following an emergency situation
  • duty of care requirements
  • respectful behaviour towards a casualty
  • own skills and limitations
  • consent
  • privacy and confidentiality requirements
  • importance of debriefing
  • considerations when providing first aid including:
  • airway obstruction  due to body position
  • appropriate duration and cessation of CPR
  • appropriate use of an AED
  • chain of survival
  • standard precautions
  • how to conduct a visual and verbal assessment of the casualty
  • principles and procedures for first aid management of the following scenarios:
  • abdominal injuries
  • allergic reaction
  • anaphylaxis
  • basic care of a wound
  • bleeding control
  • burns
  • cardiac conditions, including chest pain
  • choking and airway obstruction
  • crush injuries
  • diabetes
  • dislocations
  • drowning
  • envenomation
  • environmental impact, including hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration and heat stroke
  • eye and ear injuries
  • fractures
  • febrile convulsions
  • head, neck and spinal injuries
  • minor skin injuries
  • needle stick injuries
  • poisoning and toxic substances
  • respiratory distress, including asthma
  • seizures, including epilepsy
  • shock
  • soft tissue injuries, including strains and, sprains
  • stroke
  • unconsciousness
  • basic anatomy and physiology relating to:
  • how to recognise a person is not breathing normally
  • chest
  • response/consciousness
  • upper airway and effect of positional change
  • considerations in provision of first aid for specified conditions
