Unlike most first aid course providers, IHNA first aid training is not just taught by first aiders but by experienced healthcare professionals with extensive experience treating patients in clinical and emergency settings. IHNA trainers teach with genuine experience and insight. Benefit from their experience and knowledge to gain genuine first aid ability, not just a certificate.
As well as fulfilling a legal obligation, a well-trained first aid officer helps provide peace of mind in the event of workplace injuries or emergencies. Correct and prompt application of first aid procedures reduces the risk of legal liability and helps keep insurance premiums low across your industry sector. Your employees are your organisation's most valuable resource and you may even require first aid yourself one day.
IHNA teaches first aid as part of many more extensive courses, leading to synergies that reduce the cost to training participants and their employers. This keeps IHNA first aid training costs low in comparison with other training providers.
To keep your first aid current, it is important that first aiders undertake the half day CPR training (HLTAID001) every 12 months.
The skills learnt in IHNA’s 'Provide First Aid' course will enable you to respond effectively in emergency situations. Many occupations and voluntary organizations require a First Aid Certificate."Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply".
This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to provide cardio pulmonary resuscitation, management of casualty with bleeding, asthma, fracture, snake bite, seizures etc, until the arrival of medical or other assistance.
