Units HLTAID011 & HLTAID009
This short course aims to demonstrate and develop skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty. Both units apply to all workers who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings. The Statement of Attainment in Provide First Aid and Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is essential to work in a wide range of industries including nursing, aged care, building and construction and agriculture. Equip yourself with life-saving skills to take immediate action in an emergency and apply first aid to casualties as well as perform CPR.
First Aid is the initial care of a sick or injured person. Prompt first aid can save lives in the critical time before emergency services or medical aid arrives. It can also prevent an injury or illness from becoming worse and provide comfort and reassurance to a casualty.
The key aims of first aid:
Preserve life of anyone involved in incident
Protect any unconscious person
Prevent any further injury or existing injury becoming worse
Promote recovery of casualty
