First Aid TRAINING
Most employers require their staff to hold a first aid qualification. It is also a part of various Early Childhood, School Age and Education Support qualifications.
While ACCCO specialises in nationally recognised first aid qualifications for those employed with children and in Education environments, we also provide training to a wide range of industries too!
Depending on the qualification selected, students learn to provide a first aid response to infants, children and/or adults. This may include emergency situations, first aid procedures, DRABCD, using an AED, anaphylaxis, allergies, bleeding, fractures and much more.
We also will deliver group training onsite at your workplace anytime including Saturdays or after hours giving you the flexibility of your training being delivered at a time most convenient for you.
Please contact ACCCO to enquire about group bookings and availability.

Why Learn First Aid?
Accidents or illness can happen to anyone at any time, whether at home, at work or at school.
First aid covers the steps taken to help an injured or sick person in the first minutes after the event.
Often this first aid can help someone feel better, recover more quickly, and can even save lives.
First aid can be useful in many different situations, from sprains to electric shocks to heart attacks.
If you learn the basics of first aid, you might one day save the life of a loved one, colleague or stranger.
First aid might involve a simple action, such as placing a person in the correct position to breathe freely.
It might involve a more skilled activity, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if they have stopped breathing.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ACCCO STUDENTS
If you are completing a first aid course as a part of a qualification (eg Certificate III or Diploma), please consult your Study Plan/ Training Plan and ONLY enrol in the code listed. If you complete a different first aid to your qualification, then credit cannot be granted. Courses are specific and not transferrable.
For example: the HLTAID003 qualification sits within some Education Support programs, whilst the HLTAID004 qualification primarily sits within the Education and Care programs. It is your responsibility to enrol in the relevant unit for your program of study. Please contact ACCCO directly if you are unsure.
