General First Aid Courses

The Apply First Aid Course (previously known as Senior First Aid) is the most widely used accredited course and is usually conducted over 1 day, although in some cases it is a 2 day course.

The course covers a broad range of topics that will enable the participants to confidently manage emergency situations and provide care for the ill or injured until medical assistance arrives.

Cost of the course ranges from $130 to $205. These courses are generally available face-to-face or online. Some have only a partial online learning component.

There are several fully accredited first aid courses providers available throughout Australia. The following are recommended:
