HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting

The new HLTAID012 Provide Child Care First Aid is an accredited child care first aid course for anyone regularly around children and infants will benefit from this course and its targeted approach.

The Provide First Aid Course is made up of these units of the HLT training package:

  • HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • HLTAID010 Provide basic emergency life support
  • HLTAID011 Provide first aid
  • HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an education and care setting

The HLTAID012 Child Care First Aid Course is the current nationally recognised certificate course. It’s a first aid qualification that is valid for 3 years, although the CPR unit should be renewed annually. Because it’s nationally recognised training, you need a unique student identifier (USI) to enrol. You can easily get a USI with a drivers licence or Medicare number from this site. The CPR training is based on the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines.
