HLTAID003 Provide First Aid (PFA)

Did you know that every workplace has a legal responsibility for ensuring adequate first aid provisions?  Accidents are a part of everyday life, including your place of work. First aid is the earliest and the easiest response - even you as a bystander can assist a casualty in need.  While millions of people are trained in applying basic first aid, many Australians do not know how to perform basic first aid management. By applying effective first aid response to accidents, injuries and illnesses, you can assist a person to speedy recovery, or ultimately save their life.

This Course will assist you to develop your knowledge and skills in applying first aid response to: preserve life; prevent further harm, promote recovery; and protect the unconscious.  You will also learn to: assess the situation for danger; apply various first aid procedures; communicate details of the incident; and self-evaluate your performance for continuous improvement as a qualified first aider.
