Two common course codes that often lead to confusion are HLTAID012 – Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting and HLTAID011 -Provide First Aid. Below we outline the courses to help you choose the most appropriate course for your needs.

HLTAID012 – Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting (Includes CPR)

HLTAID012 is a specialised First Aid course designed for individuals working in education and care settings. This course encompasses essential First Aid skills while also catering to the unique needs and responsibilities of those working with children and in educational environments. Whether you’re a teacher, childcare worker, or involved in any educational setting, this course equips you with the knowledge and skills to respond effectively to emergencies that might arise with children.

The HLTAID012 course aligns with the requirements set by regulatory bodies for individuals working in education and addresses scenarios that are more likely to occur in environments where children are present.
