Provide First Aid

HLT-PFA

Introduction:

The Provide First Aid course is the minimum requirement for workplace First Aid compliance.  This course presents to you a comprehensive overview of the skills and knowledge required to provide First Aid emergency response‚ life support, and management of casualties until qualified medical help arrives at the scene.

You will be shown recommended early responder medical care for a wide range of emergencies from sprained ankles to broken bones, insect bites to potential shark bites, and from heat stroke to cardiac arrest, from struggling to breathe to poisoning, and more.

You’ll learn how to manage life-threatening medical emergencies, including providing CPR, using an AED (automatic external defibrillator), and following the DRSABCD emergency actions plan strategy.  You’ll also come to understand your legal responsibilities as a First Aider.
