First Aid Training Content Covered

What will you learn in the Provide First Aid in an education and care setting Course?

This course will teach you the essential first aid skills and knowledge you need in an education and care setting. You will gain the knowledge and practical skills necessary to deal with everything from minor bites and stings to administering an EpiPen when a person suffers anaphylaxis and being able to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). As someone who works in or aspires to work in schools and childcare centres, you will have the capacity to respond to life-threatening emergencies such as choking and asthma attacks. You will learn the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and be able to confidently help adults, children, and infants in a range of first aid situations.

Practical Assessment

While there is an assessment of writing tasks such as multiple-choice questions and filling in incident reports, there is also a strong emphasis on assessing practical skills. We will evaluate all learners on how they perform in simulated scenarios that test their skills in the following:

  • Performing CPR on adult, junior and infant manikins
  • Using an AED (defibrillator)
  • Dealing with choking by practising on manikins
  • Bandaging methods such as the pressure immobilisation technique for snakebite
  • Using an adrenaline auto-injector trainer (EpiPen trainer)
  • Using a placebo bronchodilator and spacer device for asthma

What are the childcare first aid entry requirements?

No formal academic requirements are needed to undertake HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting. The minimum age for first aid courses is 14. Still, anyone under 18 years old must provide signed consent from their parent or guardian to enrol.

Numeracy and Literacy

Brisbane First Aid’s assessment will determine whether you have the language, literacy and numeracy requirements needed to undertake this course. You must be able to:

  • Fill in an incident report
  • Communicate effectively and assertively
  • Read and follow Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines

Students who fail the LLN assessment may still be enrolled in a course if endorsed by the trainer/assessor and additional support strategies are in place.

Physical requirements

You’ll need to be able to kneel on the floor and perform CPR uninterrupted for at least 2 minutes.

Before the course, you will need to complete some reading and a multiple choice quiz. As these are online, basic computer skills and access to the internet are essential.
