First Aid Course Assignment:

 

Upon booking, WAM Training will provide a First Aid Course Assignment which must be completed prior to the commencement of face-to-face training.

 

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).

 

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements

 

In order to enrol into this First Aid Course, Trainees need to be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills required to work by themselves and as part of a team with some accountability of their own work areas in defined and routine tasks. Applicants must have sufficient reading, writing, verbal communication and numeracy skills in English to enable them to safely administer first aid in the workplace. Refer to the descriptions below:

  • Read and apply basic first aid information such as DRSABCD charts
  • Whilst good writing skills can make completing this course easier, it is not necessary to be able to write in order to enrol
  • A basic understanding of timing so that compressions and breaths can be delivered properly whilst administering CPR
  • Speak clearly and unambiguously in English
  • Explain, describe and verify sometimes complex first aid needs and issues
  • Verbal assessments may be conducted for the multiple-choice test

If a trainee is concerned that they may not have the capabilities described above, please contact WAM Training on 1800 143 343 for advice.

 

What is the First Aid Course outcome?

 

Once competence is achieved, trainees will be issued with a First Aid Course Statement of Attainment (Nationally Accredited) and First Aid Proof of Training Card.
