Provide Advanced First Aid HLTAID006


Provide Advanced First Aid HLTAID006

This course covers the skills and knowledge required to provide an advanced first aid response, including management of the incident and other first aiders, life support, and how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines until the arrival of medical or other assistance.

This course is suitable for workers who may be required to provide, coordinate and manage a first aid response across a range of complex situations, including community and workplace settings.

Soon we have some updates coming for our First Aid Courses. This is because the national regulator for Australia’s training providers has made a few changes to the first aid units. These updates have been made to reflect industry best practices. The First Aid courses offered by WRCC are still fully recognised and industry-accepted. 

This course has been superseded, however you can still enrol in the course as it still addresses the required qualification and industry standards and is still valid until 15/10/2021.  


Course Delivery
This course is delivered with mixed mode delivery including multiple choice questions, scenarios and simulated activities. A pre-course workbook is to be completed prior to commencing the course and there is a one-day (7 hour) face to face session.

All other resources will be provided on the day. After successful completion of the course examination, students are issued with a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment within 7 days.
