Frequently Asked Questions

I have special needs. Can I still attend First Aid training?

Depending on the type of need, you can still participate in first aid training. We will do everything possible to meet individual needs. Please advise us of your requirements at the time of booking.  It is a requirement of courses that include Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, that you are physically capable of performing uninterrupted Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation manikin placed on the floor.

English is my second language, can I still attend the training?

Yes, however it is important that you are able to understand what the instructor is saying. We will do everything possible to assist you if you are having difficulties, however demonstrating your knowledge competence as a first aider in written and practical assessments is a requirment.

Do I need to do CPR annually?

It is not a legal requirement to complete a resuscitation course each year. However, the Australian Resuscitation Council recommends that first aiders should be able to demonstrate their resuscitation skills on a regular basis. An annual Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation renewal may also be required by certain industries and may be identified in industry regulations or licensing requirements.

What should I bring to the course?

Your completed pre-course online workbook, some photo ID and a pen is all that you will require. We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing for your training course, as there are some physical requirements such as kneeling on the ground performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on training mannequins.

Do I need to do a Refresher course every year?

Whilst Provide First Aid is a 3 year qualification, ACTWell First Aid Training recommends that a refresher course is done every year to ensure that first aiders keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

Will you run private group bookings?

Yes, please use our contact page to send us an enquiry about private bookings.
We can come to your location provided you have adequate facilities to host the training session. Minimum requirements are 10 participants for private bookings. If your group size is less than 10 we can still run private sessions however there will be a higher cost per participant. Alternatively we can try to book your entire group into one of our 'public courses'.

Am I eligible to book in for the Refresher Provide First Aid course?

If you hold a current certificate in a recognised First Aid qualification you are eligible to enrol in the Provide First Aid Refresher course. Your certificate must not be expired, and you will need to supply a copy of your current certificate to your instructor on the day of your course.
