HLTAID012 – Provide First Aid in an education and care setting
The unit applies to 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.
The First Aid Oz HLTAID012 course allows the student to view videos, read learning materials and complete assessment quiz from home, prior to coming in for practical training and assessment.
Its the perfect format for those who are time poor, and can be done without taking a day off work.
We also offer this course for workplace delivery – aged care, child care, schools etc.
