National Course Code

HLTAID006 – Provide advanced first aid


Students are to complete pre course theory via self-paced learning using either our on-line courses or we can send out a workbook and manual. Upon completion of the theory students are required to attend a 4.5 hour face to face workshop.

A refresher course is available for students who hold a current Advanced First Aid certificate, in which case there is no pre course theory to complete. Students just attend the face to face workshop. Please note however that refresher training in this course will not include the Advanced Resuscitation course that was included in the previous version of Advanced First Aid (HLTFA412A) which is now a stand alone unit.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Students choosing to undertake RPL will need to be sent an RPL guide for their course.
