Express First Aid Course FAQs

What’s the difference between First Aid and Express First Aid?

Express First Aid is an assessment-only course with no training provided by the teacher so is faster to complete. This is only suitable for individuals with First Aid experience.

Do I still get a full qualification?

Yes, you do! You are completing the nationally recognised, otherwise known as accredited course, just without the training before the assessment.

What if I’m unsure which course is best for me?

If you are unsure which First Aid course to complete, we would recommend the full First Aid training and assessment, as it give you the best chance to pass if you are not experienced in First Aid.

What is the difference between Apply First Aid and Senior First Aid?

Previously, the Senior First Aid course was approved by SafeWork NSW for delivery. Now, first aid approval is only issued to Registered Training Organisations (RTO) by each state’s registering body. The most current version of the course is titled Provide First Aid HLTAID003.

What if I do not have access to a computer?

Unfortunately, you do have to complete a few hours of online study to receive your certificate so this should be considered before booking the course. As the online section is accessed through our online portal so you can complete it on your;

  • friend’s computer,
  • library computer,
  • work computer and
  • partially on your phone - certain questions require computer access
  • General Course FAQs

    When is my booking confirmed?

    Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.

    What are your payment methods?

    Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.

    Can I pay my package in installments?

    Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking. The good news is that we try to always offer value for money and keep course fees affordable, so you know that you are always getting good value, especially with our package deals which offer reduced prices!

    I want to book in multiple staff and/or want a company invoice?

    We can book multiple people at once and create company invoices, even for individual students. Please just email our bookings team –

    Please include the following information; the course, location and date you wish to enroll them in, full names and unique emails of those who will attend and the company's legal name, address, ABN and contact.

    What if I have trouble with written/spoken english?

    Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.

    If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.
