Prior to attending the course, participants are sent a link to complete mandatory online learning and assessment by reading the Participant Guide and successfully answering 73 knowledge quiz questions at their own pace. This must be completed prior to attending the practical session unless there are extenuating circumstances. In this situation the participant must advise the Trainer and Assessor on arrival to the practical session.
The practical session includes 1 day of demonstration, practise and assessment of skills including the confirmation of knowledge gained in the online learning. Participants must perform uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an infant, child and adult manikins on the floor and respond to simulated emergency scenarios involving infants and children in varying ages, including first aid skills:
- allergic reaction and anaphylaxis;

- choking and airway obstruction;
- respiratory distress, including asthma;
- envenomation and immobilisation techniques;

Participants who may require additional support to complete this course are encouraged to call the Contact Centre to discuss available options.
The HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting Unit of Competency standard requires a level of physical ability to meet the evidence requirements for assessment. These standards relate to the level of performance required to provide resuscitation and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life.
Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements.
As St John WA RTO is not CRICOS registered, this course is not available to international students (or dependants) in Australia on an International Student Visa. If this applies to you, please call the St John WA Contact Centre 08 9334 1233 to discuss available options.
