HLTAID003 PROVIDE FIRST AID
HLTAID003 is a nationally recognised qualification for workers who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, include community and workplace settings.
This is a fun, hands-on practical training session (there’s no power points or reading from text books) carefully formatted to provide you with the confidence to administer first aid.
First Aid includes doing CPR and using an defibrillator, so be sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing. For those with injuries or limited mobility, we can make a reasonable adjustment to your training session.
