Providing effective, lifesaving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training


As with any training, it is more useful if training occurs before being confronted with a

real-life situation, particularly in an education and care setting

This course has been developed for 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



 It is delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines

During training you will gain the confidence and ability to recognise an emergency situation,

identify hazards and make them safer, and provide a first aid response to infants, children and adults

You will also learn the importance of recognising the possible psychological impacts on self, other

rescuers and children, talking with children about their emotions and responses to events and

participating in debriefing with your supervisor
