Although it has taken a long time, childcare workers, nursing staff and aged care workers are finally gaining the recognition they deserve. As health and safety regulations become standard workplace protocol all around Australia, the value attributed to highly-trained care industry workers has risen, along with the qualifications required to perform all care work functions at adequate levels. Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting (HLTAID004) has become an extremely important first aid qualification in demand, with Real First Aid course graduates among the most proficient in Melbourne and the rest of Australia.
What emergency first aid training is provided?
Real First Aid courses are adapted to provide appropriate emergency response training for all workplace and community settings. Our course delivery includes simulation based training, or ‘learning by doing’ allowing course participants to practice their life saving skills even while training. Simulation based training has been used with great success to train paramedics and other emergency response personnel for decades, and the method didn’t go unnoticed by Real First Aid founders.
The response has been amazing, and we are already noticing a dramatic increase in first aid knowledge and skills retention that saves more lives around Melbourne every day. Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting (HLTAID004) is a training course worth considering by anyone who values the health and safety of those in their care. Our training courses delivered by capable and experienced emergency services personnel have revolutionised first aid training in Melbourne, and education and care managers and employees are treated to a dynamic experience at Real First Aid that includes:
- Realistic scenarios that emulate genuine emergency response situations
- The addition of actors and props to immerse students in the learning process
- Emergency sirens, flashing lights, 000 calls and more

- Team bonding, communication and leadership development
- Timed response practice that emulates real emergency situations
Will I receive workplace approved qualifications?
All Real First Aid qualifications result in accreditation that is accepted by government and industry experts around Australia. In fact, Real First Aid was established in 2014 to bridge the divide between attainments and genuine life saving capabilities. First aid knowledge and skills are easily learnt by almost anyone, and with the addition of simulation based first aid training, the life saving skills also become life skills that are deeply embedded and ready to be called upon whenever required.
Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting is learnt in only 7.5 hours, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external Defibrillator (AED) training. Other nationally accredited course attainments include:
- Provide first aid care to adults, children and infants
- Treatment of anaphylaxis (sever allergic reaction) using an adrenaline auto-injector
- Artificial respiration and other airway management procedures and techniques

There is a whole lot more to be discovered during an enlivening day under the tutelage of Real First Aid course instructors who are ready to help you maximise your first aid response capability.
Are real life scenarios necessary to learn first aid?
Rote learning from a book and desk-bound training can help a person understand the purpose and function of first aid procedures, but they are no substitute for experience. Real First Aid training incorporates experience into learning, allowing course graduates to proceed with confidence in their ability. Benefits of simulation based first aid training include:
- Superior student engagement in learning first aid procedures
- The capacity to save more lives and respond appropriately to any emergency
- Creation of a safe environment for everyone under your care
- Team building exercises for creating a unified workplace
- Real-time testing of first aid knowledge and skills
- An ideal study method for people of all ages
