Workplace First Aid – Australia

In Australia, workplaces must follow occupational health and safety regulations – amongst others, these specify that businesses and care organisations must have personnel on staff with current, recognised workplace-approved CPR and first aid training.

This is why PADI Asia Pacific’s Registered Training Organisation (RTO, ID#6729) mapped and designed workplace courses for providing CPR & AED, Basic Life Support and First Aid to meet Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) and Vocational Education and Training (VET) requirements for several units of competency from the Health Training Package. The most popular courses are:

  • HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation
  • HLTAID002 Provide basic emergency life support
  • HLTAID003 Provide first aid
  • HLTAID006 Provide advanced first aid
  • HLTAID007 Provide advanced resuscitation

EFR Instructors, Trainers and training centres registered with PADI’s RTO may offer numerous other Nationally Recognised Training first aid related courses, e.g. Low Voltage Rescue, Manual Handling Methods, Basic Emergency Oxygen, etc.
