HLTFA311A – Apply First Aid and CPR

Take your skill set to the next level with the HLTFA311A – Apply First Aid and CPR course at ACE Forklift Training. When working in a high-risk workplace, such as logistics, transport and warehouse industries, the benefits of having basic first aid training are essential. At our course, students are taught how to assess risk, identify a crisis and deal with the situation using effective, respectful and possibly life-saving procedures.

Our course is combined with the CPR course, ensuring that all students know how to identify the signs of heart failure and are well-equipped to deliver CPR in a medical emergency. The course material is extensive, but our staff are well-trained to deliver each component of this unit in a thoughtful and clear manner, assessing the individual need of all our students in order to ensure we maintain our high pass rates.

Classes are held on demand, the last Thursday of every month, but do require a minimum of five students. If you’re a business looking to book in a group contact us today. If you’re taking either or both our LO Order Picker Licence Course or our LF Forklift Licence Course, makes sure you express interest in taking our First Aid course in order to be notified when the next available training will be scheduled.
