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:

These certificates are all short courses, so you will be ready to act in a crisis in no time.

Our first aid courses teach you to provide quick and effective responses in a range of stressful scenarios and crises. You’ll learn to provide CPR in an emergency, effectively communicate details of an incident to others, evaluate your own performance, and respond to anaphylaxis and asthma attacks.

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.

Being a qualified first aid provider adds value to your professional skill set. You’ll have a competitive edge over peers, demonstrate your commitment to workplace health and safety culture, and provide support in keeping colleagues in your workplace safe. You’ll gain professional respect and be an integral contributor to workplace operations and strategy by: administering first aid, assessing workplace hazards, and influencing work health and safety policies, procedures, and practices.

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.
