No matter who you are, first aid training provides skills for life. Trained first aiders are able to provide safety and security in a range of emergency situations and have the skills to assist casualties until medical assistance arrives.
The Mater Education First Aid course provides comprehensive first aid training—from learning the fundamentals of common first aid, through to assessing emergency situations and administering CPR. The course is aligned with the Australian Resuscitation Guidelines and is delivered by our team of expert instructors who have built their skills working in the demanding and fast-paced hospital environment.
Who should attend?
Our First Aid course is designed for anyone requiring a First Aid certificate for employment or seeking first-aid knowledge. This includes first-aid organisation personnel, community organisation members, teachers, educators, parents and students.
Note: CPR is included in this First Aid course, therefore you do not need to enrol in both programs. Click here to enrol in CPR only.
During the First Aid course, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to provide a first aid response including:
- cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic life support for adults and children (using a model of the human body)
- basic health and safety knowledge
- managing casualties, the incident and other first aiders until medical assistance arrives.
You will also learn what to do when someone is:
- having a stroke or heart attack
- bitten by a spider or snake
You’ll be assessed throughout the course and involves a mix of multiple choice questions, role play and physical demonstration. You’ll need to demonstrate your understanding of basic first aid both on your own and as part of a first aid team.
As the course involves practical demonstrations, you need to dress in comfortable clothing and be physically capable of performing resuscitation tasks.
Successfully completing this Nationally Recognised Training will earn you a Statement of Attainment.
