Provide First Aid in One Day
Provide First Aid HLTAID003 (Level 2 in 1 Day)
How Provide First Aid in 1 Day Works
This Nationally Recognised course is conducted in 2 phases.
The online quiz takes approx 2 - 6 hours to complete. You can have as many attempts as necessary and you may log in and out at any time. This allows you to complete the quiz in your own time; however it must be finished prior to the practical day.
The practical day is a fun, no pressure day of scenarios and practical application which enables you to consolidate what you have learned online in a "hands on" manner. This is where you practice CPR on manikins and run through scenarios that may occur in everyday life. The day runs from 9.15am to 3.30pm with lunch, morning and afternoon breaks and there is plenty of discussion time for any questions you have.
There is no written exam as you are assessed during the day and assisted through all first aid competencies as the day progresses.
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to do an online quiz when others just offer a 1 day course?
When you finish a course you should actually be confident to administer first aid. The EFA program allows you to complete first aid theory and online scenarios prior to doing practical hands on scenarios. This way you are not just doing the "minimum required" to tick boxes, you are actively learning first aid and will walk away confident.
Is the qualification the same as St John Ambulance?
Yes, we deliver the same nationally recognised course code Provide First Aid - HLTAID003. This used to be known as Senior First Aid, Level 2 First Aid and Provide First Aid. Emergency First Aid Pty Ltd provides statements of attainment as Registered Training Organisation 21703 under the AQTF, (Australian Quality Training Framework)
When do I get my certificate?
Your first aid certificate will emailed within a few days of your course completion. A printed certificate can be ordered at the time of enrolment and posted for a small fee ($5.00)
Can I get my certificate on the day?
We have training venues in all States of Australia with our certificates being administered and sent through our corporate office in Melbourne. We can email or fax a certificate on the day of training if required, at no extra cost
Can I do a refresher course through EFA if I did my original course with another provider?
Yes, Provide First Aid Refresher courses are available at each of our 1 day Level 2 courses. You must have a current or recently expired Provide First Aid, Senior First Aid, Provide First Aid or other Nationally Recognised Level 2 certificate to be eligible to complete the 1 day of refresher training and give a copy of this to the trainer on the day of the practical
Is CPR included in Provide First Aid?
Yes, CPR is an element of Provide First Aid and your nationally recognised statement of attainment will show CPR HLTAID001 in addition to Provide First Aid HLTAID003. The Australian Resuscitation Council states that CPR should be refreshed within 12 months
How long does the online program take to complete?
The online program is an interactive learning system with reference material and scenarios. It generally takes around 4 hours to complete although if you make notes it can take longer.
I haven't finished the online program and my course is approaching, what can I do?
Call our Student Services and arrange to transfer your practical date. We allow 1 free transfer if advised more than 5 days from your practical session, there is a cost for subsequent transfers. (See Terms & Conditions)
I haven't finished the online program; can I still do the practical?
The practical program builds on the theory, so it is essential that you finish the online program before attending the practical. Unfortunately you will not be able to attend the practical day if you haven't completed the online.
Where is the practical component done?
EFA has many locations in each state. Please choose your state to find a location near you, or you can also complete the practical component in the comfort of your own home. (See Fastrak101 - One on One Training)
