Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting

Australian household dynamics have been transforming for decades, and meeting the health and safety needs of men, women and children is a constant challenge. Education and care industries are now big business, with governments, employers and individuals all playing a role in creation of high-quality, first-aid-friendly facilities equipped to provide an emergency response in education and care settings. Maintaining work/school/home balance is difficult when schedules overlap, and care centres have been a boon for busy moms and dads, particularly when trained first aiders are on site.

Real First Aid education and care setting training provides a life-saving skill-set tailored for educators and support staff. The attainments gained in Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting (HLTAID004) are transferable across all school and care environments, with first aid and CPR training adapted for infants, children and adults. More young and vulnerable Australians than ever are commencing their education early, socialising with other children at care centres and trying new experiences. Childcare support staff are aware of the potential for accident, incident or emergency, while the Real First Aid training attainments are a compulsory component of recognised Australian education and care qualifications.

Who Would Benefit Attending an Emergency Response Course?

Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting (HLTAID004) is recognised as an industry-standard attainment for teachers, support staff, carers and parents. The competencies gained in HLTAID004 provide broad scope for emergency response, empowering graduates with the confidence to oversee and manage school and care groups of all sizes. Lasting 1 or 2 days, HLTAID004 encompasses first aid, CPR, asthma and anaphylaxis training specifically tailored for carers and educators.

Commencing employment in an education and care setting can be intimidating for newcomers to the industry. Fortunately, regulations dictate that workplaces include provision of trained first aid staff, first aid facilities and guidelines to minimise workplace risks and hazards. In other words, training with Real First Aid provides a career-leap with confidence, delivering the ability to spot an emergency and respond decisively by applying the appropriate first aid procedure. When the care of vulnerable children is paramount, it’s good to know Real First Aid is making a real difference.

Why is Education and Care Setting First Aid Different?

Every Real First Aid course is uniquely tailored for industry-specific purposes, while group learning is encouraged by enhanced Simulation Training – a Real First Aid success story.
