HLTAID004 Provide emergency first aid response for carers and teachers



Children are not small adults. It is inevitable that they will at some point have an accident or illness. Children are physiologically different to adults and this means they can react differently to illness or injury. As a parent, carer or teacher you may need to know how to effectively deal with any situation you encounter.

The unit applies to educators and support staff working within an education and care setting who are required to respond to a first aid emergency, including asthmatic and anaphylactic emergencies.

The Course will assist you to develop your knowledge and skills in applying first aid response in an education and care setting to preserve life, prevent further harm, promote recovery and protect the unconscious.
