Provide CPR 

Provide CPR is a staple of all first aid training and is crucial in providing timely first aid to casualty’s who are not breathing.  The course incorporates a practical session that you’ll complete in class and a knowledge assessment. The knowledge assessment is completed in class for the face-to-face course, making the total class time 2 hours. The knowledge assessment is completed online in the express online course, making the total class time 1 hour.  CPR is an essential life-saving skill and should be regularly updated.

Provide First Aid

Provide First Aid covers the basic steps of first aid assistance for the most common emergencies in Australia. How to practically apply first aid skills is assessed in class, and students can choose whether they also complete knowledge assessment tasks before the practical in-class or online. The face-to-face course is the best option for those who want to do everything in class, with 6 hours spent with a trainer. For those who prefer online study, the express online course allows them to study and complete knowledge assessments online before coming in to complete a 2-hour trainer-led class. Providing timely first aid can significantly reduce the seriousness of most situations.
