This course provides students with the opportunity to complete a First Aid course online, learning skills and knowledge required to provide first aid to a casualty. Online First Aid is a great way to learn what you can do in an emergency, however, it's not normally completed for first aid officers in the workplace; it’s normally completed by those who work in a specific industry permitting online first aid for their certification (e.g. casual school teachers) or those who want to learn the skills required to deal with a first aid emergency, such as:
- New parents
- Nannies and carers
- Travelers and holiday makers
If organising staff training or onsite training, we can facilitate the First Aid training nationally.
The online first aid course in non-accredited.
Students will be assessed through the use of online workbooks. Assessment will confirm knowledge has been achieved to provide first aid in an emergency.
If a student is not successful in completing all assessments satisfactorily, they will need to rebook the First Aid course online at the full course fee.
PLEASE NOTE: if you require accredited training or a first aid certificate for the workplace, you should check with your employer or industry body to confirm online first aid is accepted prior to enrolment. We do not offer refunds to students who did not realise they needed an accredited first aid certificate.
