HLTAID011 Provide First Aid
This unit (HLTAID011 Provide First Aid) describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty in line with first aid guidelines determined by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and other Australian national peak clinical bodies.
The unit applies to all persons who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.
Thоѕе whо are rеԛuіrеd tо рrоvіdе an еmеrgеnсу first аіd response іn a workplace or for their job roles. This can include, Nurses, Doctors, Police Officers, Security Officers, Emergency Services and Armed Forces personnel and Education and Childcare staff and teachers.
There are no entry requirements into HLTAID011 Provide First Aid, however, participants should have a basic level of literacy and numeracy so they can read, interpret and apply guidelines and protocols. All candidates will need to attain a competent level on the pre-enrolment LLN. ACSE will administer an LLN skills test based on the ACSF at a combination of Level 1 and 2 skills.
It is recommended that participants:
- Have completed year 10 school or equivalent.
- Must have sound Language, Literacy and Numeracy skills
- Wear comfortable clothing to accommodate physical demonstration requirements of the course
- Able to perform CPR while kneeling on a firm surface. Given the physical demands of performing CPR correctly, people with knee and back problems may experience discomfort and reasonable adjustment may need to occur
- Wear enclosed footwear at all times while training
The practical components, particularly CPR, now require a candidate to perform CPR on a manikin on the floor in a kneeling position, so candidates need to be advised that they may find this difficult if they have problems physically with their knees.
It is a pre-condition that a pre-course theory assessment is completed and results provided to the trainer/assessor prior to being scheduled for a practical training session
There are no formal prerequisites, though candidates must successfully complete LLN testing, be physically capable of performing CPR on manikins placed on the floor and other practical tasks.
