HLTAID014 - Provide Advanced First Aid

FirstAidPro’s Advanced First Aid course is the highest First Aid qualification available to the public. The “Advanced” part refers to how comprehensive our course is and not how difficult it may be to understand;  Despite the name, our Advanced First Aid course is suitable for students of all backgrounds. No matter your previous experience with First Aid or providing care in a crisis, an Advanced First Aid Certificate can prepare you to best manage any number of medical emergencies and situations.

Completing the Provide Advanced First Aid course represents attaining the skills and knowledge required to appropriately deliver Advanced First Aid care until the arrival of medical or other assistance. This includes recording the condition of a casualty, completing workplace incident documentation and debriefing for recognising areas for improvement, including management of the incidents psychological impacts and seeking help as required. 

Replacing the, now superseded, HLTAID006 Provide Advanced First Aid.

The course will benefit those workers who may be required to provide, coordinate, and manage first aid responses across a wide range of complex situations, including both workplace and community settings.
