This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty. The unit applies to all workers who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.
First Aid skills can be the difference between life and death for a workmate, family member, a stranger on the street, or even yourself. Whether you need it for your workplace, your club, in another setting or would just like peace of mind.
First Aid is not just a useful skill, it could also help save a life and minimise the impact of injuries.
