Frequently Asked Questions
Studying first aid allows you to be prepared for unexpected, and potentially life-threatening, accidents.
Whether you complete your first aid training for personal development or workplace requirements, the outcome remains the same: you will be able to confidently provide the right response at the right time, and you may just save a life.
TAFE NSW has a range of first aid certificates designed to help you become a qualified first aid respondent:
- Statement of Attainment in Provide First Aid
- Statement in Attainment in Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
- Statement of Attainment in Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting
These certificates are all short courses, so you will be ready to act in a crisis in no time.
Whether you are fighting fires, teaching school children, or cooking up a storm at a restaurant, there could always be a need for a qualified first aider to provide a quick response to an unexpected situation.
Every year, almost half a million Australians are admitted to hospital. When paired with the fact that less than 5% of Australians are first aid certified, it becomes alarming.
Get started with a first aid qualification and raise the Australian health and safety standard by becoming first aid qualified.
