The first three codes mentioned above are old and have all been superseded. HLTAID003 Provide first aid is the current generalist first aid certificate that all Australian workplaces need.

So long as you have successfully completed the online learning and you are assessed as competent in all practical demonstrations and role plays on the day of your practical class, a PDF of your nationally recognised Statement of Attainment will be emailed to you at the end of the day of your class.

Yes you do. You need to demonstrate a 2 minute continuous period of performing CPR on an adult manikin which must be placed on the floor (same with child manikin for those doing HLTAID004). CPR on infant manikins needs to be for 2 minutes on a firm surface.

According to government regulations, we will be unable to issue you with a Statement of Attainment bearing units codes and names although we can issue you with a simple Statement of Attendance.

Payments need to be made for our first aid classes with a credit card online or call us on + 61 2 9874 9080 and pay by credit card over the phone, or by coming to our Sydney office Mon-Fri 9am-5pm at the above address to pay by cash, EFTPOS or credit card. Bookings for our first aid courses prior to the day of the course are essential.

Please bring photo ID and writing material if you want to take any notes during the first aid course. Our first aid classes start promptly so don’t be late! We will not allow entry if you are more than 15 minutes late and you will need to re-book and pay again for another class. Please wear comfortable clothing and bear in mind that you will be on the ground in some cases performing simulated first aid.

There are no written exams that need to be undertaken on the day of your first aid class. Assessment will be by way of practical tasks and role plays based on scenarios.

Provide First Aid is 6.5 hours (includes 15 minute morning tea break and 45 minute lunch break) and Perform CPR is 2-2.5 hours. Our first aid classes start promptly so don’t  be late! We will not allow entry if you are more than 15 minutes late and you will need to re-book and pay again for another class.

Our course is flexible in delivery and comprises an easy pre-study component followed by a 1 day in-class practical course. The easy pre-study consists of 100 MCQs which can be done online. The pre-study takes on average 3-5 hours. (You keep answering the questions until you get 100% – as many times as it takes with no time limit)

The age limit is 14 or above unless accompanied by an adult. The accompanying adult also has to pay full price for attending the course.

We run first aid courses every week of the year.

Students will need to be able to follow and recall instructions and information provided by the trainer so that they can complete activities that will be assessed. The activities will include demonstrating practical skills competently and recording answers to written questions. With First Aid, these written questions are asked via a pre-course online workbook. You will need to converse in English to take part in the scenarios in class.

Given that you will need to complete online learning as part of this course, you will need to be computer-literate.

No. In this case, you will only need to attempt modules 15 and 16 in the Child Care online learning.

We have over 16 years’ experience in the industry and the best trainers who teach clearly and effectively ensure that we are the best value for money in Sydney.

We are unable to refund monies for students who do not turn up for first aid classes or decide at a later date after booking that that they do not want to attend. Changes to class times are allowed, but not within 48 hours of the class commencing.

If you have a special need arising from learning difficulties, emotional or behavioural problems, or physical disabilities, you should contact info@aspextraining.com.au prior to course commencement. Please note that CPR needs to be demonstrated on the floor.

Our trainers and assessors are both experienced and skilled in giving support to learners and in making reasonable adjustments to training and assessment to accommodate learner needs, where required. Where necessary, our trainers and assessors can make themselves available to meet with students outside scheduled course times. Ongoing support can be obtained by calling Aspex Training Academy on +61 2 9874 9080 or by emailing info@aspextraining.com.au

We do not discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, colour, sex or religion. All students are treated equally. Our instructors will assist and support students where appropriate, especially students with language, literacy, or physical disabilities, as long as the nature of the disability does not preclude them from completing the training and assessment. We do not tolerate discriminatory behaviour from students in any of our classes.

Any issues or questions regarding access and equity can be directed to the CEO.

Please don’t as this will preclude you giving your full attention to the trainer and may disrupt the running of your assessment and others in the class.

For all first aid courses and coffee courses there is online learning involved which needs to be completed before you attend your course.
