The Provide First Aid course covers a broad range of topics to enable participants to confidently manage emergency situations, providing care for the ill or injured until medical aid arrives. It is suitable to both people in workplaces and members of the public who want training in first aid.

Most workplaces require a specific number of people to successfully complete this qualification.

The Provide First Aid qualification remains current for three years, during which time an Apply First Aid refresher course must be completed.

This course provides the skills to recognise and then manage a casualty who is unconscious and is not breathing. CPR is a lifesaving technique which can sustain life until an ambulance arrives.

ETEA recommends, in line with Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines, that a CPR refresher program is undertaken every 12 months.
