HLTAID004 Provide and emergency first aid response in an education or care setting
Duration: 1-2 days
The HLTAID004 Provide Emergency First aid Response in an Education and Care Setting course is designed to provide the leaner with skills in identifying and managing the risk of injury and illness in the workplace and provide the initial first aid response to the casualty until medical assistance is available. The course covers a wide range of scenarios related to trauma and medical events that may occur at home or at work.
It is suitable for all employees in an education and childcare environment who require training in providing that initial response first aid.
In addition, this unit of competency covers the management of asthma, anaphylaxis and the welfare of a child who has been exposed to a traumatic situation. This involves discussions around management options including counselling and debriefing.
Assessment is through a combination of a class knowledge assessment and practical first aid scenarios. You will be required to demonstrate CPR on a manikin on the floor.
