HLTAID012 Provide First Aid In An Education And Care Setting
Canberra’s most flexible
First Aid training
Express Online is the quickest and most streamlined training method on the market. Students save time by completing knowledge tasks online and in their own time. All first aid courses have a practical element so you still need to attend a face-to-face session to complete your training but the amount of time you need to spend in class is less than half that of a conventional First Aid course.
With a push towards online and distance learning it is difficult to find traditional in-class courses. Our face-to-face first aid courses are still our most popular, possibly because people still yearn for the hands-on comprehensive training and support that can come from a face-to-face course. Unlike other so-called face-to-face courses, there are no hidden online assessments or tasks.

What Is First Aid Response?
First Aid Response is the immediate action taken to provide aid and assistance in an emergency. It entails completing a training programme providing individuals with the skills to respond to a first aid emergency. This includes knowledge of established first aid principles, using Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and properly utilising First Aid equipment.
The response follows established First Aid Guidelines, which determine the appropriate action for different situations. This knowledge is based on first aid codes of practice and ensures that the first aid aligns with accepted standards. In addition, First Aid Response considers the specific workplace or site procedures requirements. This includes providing first aid and infection control protocols to guarantee the safety of the rescuer and the people who need help.
Emergency First Aid Response
Emergency First Aid Response is the immediate assistance provided in critical situations. It involves accessing emergency services and managing emergencies related to known medical conditions like asthma and anaphylaxis. Training covers techniques for performing CPR on adults, children, and infants. Additionally, responders learn site procedures relevant to the location of the emergency.
HLTAID012 Provide First Aid In An Education And Care Setting
HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting is a training course required by the Education and Care Services National Law. It equips individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to administer first aid in educational and care environments. The training focuses on addressing potential emergencies and health-related incidents specific to these settings, ensuring the safety and well-being of children and promoting effective response and care.
Relevance Of First Aid Qualifications In Education And Care Setting
First aid qualifications are crucial in an education and care setting as they ensure the safety and well-being of children. These qualifications enable individuals to respond to emergencies and provide necessary medical assistance effectively. This includes administering first aid procedures, such as using first aid kits and following established protocols.
The training covers vital skills like providing CPR, understanding upper airway management, and positional changes’ effects. It also includes knowledge of ARC Guidelines specific to infants and children. With practical training and focusing on acute illness in children and infants, first aid qualifications equip individuals to handle emergencies and provide appropriate care. Additionally, the course often includes online pre-course theory to enhance the learning experience.
First Aid In An Education And Care Setting
First aid in education and care settings involves applying the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applying practical assessment. It requires having all the necessary equipment like CPR manikins, Automated External Defibrillator training devices, and personal protective equipment (PPE). Considerations include age-appropriate communication and distraction techniques and the first aider’s response to basic physiological differences in children. Stress management techniques and support for rescuers and children may be needed.
