What is Level 1 First Aid?
Level 1 First Aid, also known as Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002), is a nationally accredited first aid course. Training at Real Response delivers an impressive array of capabilities for responding to low-frequency, high risk emergencies that can occur anywhere and at any time. The skillset and knowledge gained in Level 1 First Aid translates effectively in the workplace, at home, or anywhere else.
The window of opportunity to revive cardiac arrest victims is short, making on-site first aid staff a valuable addition to any workplace, and although not every first aid call-out is a life-or-death situation, it’s reassuring to have qualified people on hand to form a vital link in the life saving chain. In addition, trained first aiders now have access to portable defibrillators, adrenaline auto-injectors and other state-of-the-art equipment that gets real results.
Real Response prioritises life-saving skills that can be replicated in the real world. We introduce students to simulation based first aid training that gets you away from the desk and into emergency response action even while training. Once the short Level 1 First Aid Course (HLTAID002) is complete, you will be ready, willing and able to approach emergency situations with confidence.
Simulated reality encourages deeper learning and superior knowledge retention, allowing you to keep a cool head and focus on resuscitation and revival techniques without distraction should an emergency arise under your watch.

Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002) certification lasts for 3 years, after which time a short refresher course is required to retain the qualification.
