Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting specifically targets Australia’s massive childcare and education services, where the likelihood of vulnerable young children experiencing emergencies is heightened. Despite the best intentions and high industry standards, accidents and incidents happen, but having qualified first aiders on site provides surety that young Australians are appreciating a safe upbringing.

Course participants actively assimilate skill set attainments in realistic emergency response scenarios, ensuring greater knowledge uptake and information retention.
Is HLTAID004 only for education and care setting first aid?
Real First Aid courses are progressive and cumulative, but also industry specific. HLTAID004 course attainments are relatable to all first aid and CPR emergency scenarios, with the inclusion of additional instruction specifically related to education and care settings. Considerations include:
- Procedures for creating and maintaining a safe care environment
- First aid, CPR and anaphylaxis practices that satisfy national law
- Understanding emotional and psychological impact of emergencies on children
- Accurate reporting of accidents and emergencies according to industry guidelines
First aid skills are used in low-frequency, high-risk emergencies, so it’s important that first aiders performing other work functions are ready for action if an emergency arises. Real First Aid is dedicated to the spread of first aid skills and knowledge throughout the broader Australian community, and there is no better place to start than with the formative education of our youngest generation. Real First Aid attainments remain fresh long after training is complete, transforming supervision of the young and vulnerable from an anxiety riddled experience into a challenging but extremely rewarding occupation.
