This course is for workers who may be required to provide, coordinate and manage
a first aid response across a range of complex situations, including community
and workplace settings.
You will learn how to respond in an emergency situation, apply appropriate first
aid procedures, coordinate first aid activities until the arrival of medical
assistance, communicate details and evaluate the incident.
When you finish this course you can undertake further First Aid training in
other first aid related occupational courses. Advanced standing may be granted
in courses where managing first aid in a community or industry workplace is part
of the course.
ENROLLING IN FIRST AID UNITS OF COMPETENCY
If you are seeking to enrol in a First Aid unit of competency you are
advised that to complete the unit you must be able to perform basic life
support skills, for example control bleeding and perform cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR). If you have a disability that would prevent you from
performing required basic life support skills you are advised that you will
not be able to achieve the unit of competency.
There are no entry requirements for this course.

organisations and industry workplaces.
A TAFE NSW Certificate IV or Diploma could give you up 6 to 12 months advanced standing in a university degree and some Advanced Diplomas offer even more credit.
Choosing a TAFE to University Pathway at North Coast TAFE is a great way to get practical ‘job ready’ skills and then gain entry to a university at an advanced stage.
More information can be found on our TAFE 2 uni page on our website.
Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
