    There are no pre-requisites for this course however participants need to meet the minimum physical and LLN requirements.

    The HLTAID competency standards require a level of physical ability to provide first aid and respond to an emergency situation where there may be risk to life. Students are required to:

    • Perform 2 minutes of CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor
    • Perform 2 minutes of CPR on an infant manikin placed on the floor
    • Place a patient into the recovery position

    Due to the potential risk to health and safety where a nominated first aider, or worker with a duty of care, does not have the ability to perform resuscitation and/or first aid to the performance standard, it is not appropriate to issue a statement of attainment to students who are physically unable to meet the assessment requirements. FAAE are unable to make adjustments to these requirements even if the qualification is a necessary part of the learner’s employment conditions.

    If you feel there could be some difficulties with mobility or performing basic tasks please contact us prior to training to discuss any concerns on 07 5520 5068 to discuss the options available to you.

    Participants will require sufficient LLN skills to successfully complete the course. These skills/tasks are:

    • Basic reading and writing skills in English
    • Ability to listen and understand verbal communication in English
    • Ability to count to 30, calculate basic ratios, use a timer and tell the time
    • Read and answer multiple choice questions in English

    • HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

    In most cases a Statement of Attainment in the form of an A4 electronic pdf will be emailed
    on the day of training based on the following:

    • Successful completion of the required assessments

    • Course fees are paid in full
