How do I get qualified for Childcare First Aid?

HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting is a mix of knowledge (theory) and  practical (skills).

If you complete the Face-to-Face course, you will be assessed on the knowledge requirements in-class.

Practical assessment is completed in-class for both courses as you must be observed performing your first aid skills by a registered trainer.

A more efficient way to complete a Childcare First Aid module, Learning Online gives students the freedom to  complete the knowledge tasks of the course via their student portal prior to coming to class.
