Overview

According to WorkSafe Victoria, the minimum acceptable level of training for first aid officers for workplaces is the senior first aid certificate (often referred to as a level 2 first aid certificate) or its competency based equivalent. This course is designed to meet that requirement.

Why complete this First Aid Course?

Section 21 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.) requires that employers provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the management and control of the employer.

According to WorkSafe Victoria, the number of first aiders and training needs will vary between workplaces. As a general rule, persons designated as first aid officers will need to have undertaken training leading to a Senior First Aid certificate (Level 2 certificate).

Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guideline 10.1 states that “those trained in CPR should refresh their CPR skills at least annually”. It is generally accepted that individuals should refresh their first aid qualification on a 3 yearly basis (in addition to refreshing CPR annually).

  • CPR for adults and infants
  • Anaphylaxis and asthma
  • Bleeding and wound care
  • Choking
  • Fractures, sprains and strains
  • And many more first aid life saving techniques
  • Minimum 18 years of age
  • Applicants who are currently employed or who have recent work experience are preferred
