HLTAID012 Provide first aid in an education and care setting (Learning Online)

For anyone working in the childcare or education industry, or anyone around children and infants on a regular basis, HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting is the course for you.

In addition to contributing towards approved first aid, anaphylaxis and asthma training under the Education and Care Services national law and the Education and Care Services National Regulations (2011), this accredited unit of competency has also been approved by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), so you can be sure of its quality and relevance.

Learning Online is a new course delivery method that combines the ease of online with the benefits of face-to-face training. Students complete the knowledge requirements of the course in their own time through their student portal before coming to class for a single 2-hour session where they can apply the practical first aid skills they have learned in a safe, simulated environment.
