Please note that our ONLINE ONLY FIRST AID COURSE will NOT result in you receiving an accredited certificate in HLTAID003 Provide First Aid upon completion of the course. Our Online courses are designed for people who require the knowledge of First Aid, and also for people who live in rural areas who cannot access face-to-face training to be assessed for practical competencies. As this course is online only and practical competencies cannot be assessed via this method, participants will not receive an ASQA accredited certificate and, depending on your employer, may not be suitable for work. Check with your employer if this course is right for you if required for employment purposes before commencing the course.
