First Aid certification

All practitioners are require to hold current First Aid certification.  In Australia, most workplace First Aiders are required to be qualified in HLTFA311A "Apply first aid" (formerly known as Senior First Aid, Workplace level 2).

HLTFA311A, Apply First Aid, is current for 3 years and usually includes
HLTFA211A Provide basic emergency life support, and
HLTCPR211A Perform CPR

Our New Zealand practitioner members will need an equivalent level of certification.

From 1 July 2014 all current first aid units will be superseded
