Learning Outcomes

The Nationally Accredited Provide 1st Aid course (HLTAID011 – the most current First Aid course) teaches participants the necessary skills to administer first aid care that may be required in emergency situations, as well as the tools needed to help treat serious injuries and other ailments.

Upon successfully completing the nationally recognised training course, your certification remains valid for 3 years, at which time you may choose to have it renewed if necessary. The CPR module (HLTAID009) incorporated within the Provide First Aid course is valid for 12 months and must be renewed annually.

The First Aid course runs for 1 day (the first 4 hours will cover the CPR component) with pre-course reading and a theory assessment required to be completed, prior to attending the face to face component, as well.  This course is delivered on various days at several locations on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Far North Queensland, and Northern NSW.  The pre-course reading and assessment ensures you have the underpinning knowledge required to commence the face to face component of the course.

Do you only require your CPR certification?  Refresher courses are also available at RAM Training. The CPR qualification is covered in the first 4 hours of the normal First Aid course – please see our CPR course page for more information.

For corporate bookings, please note – group bookings are available at your work premises in any location Australia-wide. Course delivery can also be tailored to your industry, for example – childcare, aged care, nursing etc.


Note, for international students – we are not CRICOS registered, please check your visa requirements for enrolment. We cannot accept international students who are on a student visa.

I recently pursued my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) through RAM Training Services and was thoroughly impressed by their professional approach. Their utilization of webinars made learning engaging and interactive, bridging the gap often found in online education. The seasoned instructors were adept at elucidating complex concepts, making the learning journey both enlightening and enjoyable. Moreover, the convenience and flexibility of webinar sessions accommodated my schedule perfectly. The course not only honed my vocational training skills but also instilled a deeper understanding of the subject matter, preparing me for real-world applications. Highly recommend RAM Training Services for anyone looking to elevate their training and assessment expertise.

I know some people struggle to complete the TAE 40116. It can be quite involved. Doing RAM's 5 day intensive though helped me understand what needed to be done and set me up to be able to complete the course quickly. A word of advice: If you study this way complete the 'homework' immediately after the intensive (in the evening after each day) while the learning is fresh in your mind. If you leave it too long you will forget what to do which will make it more onerous to complete. It makes for a very busy week but you can break the back of the workload very quickly. Thanks RAM for providing the support needed to complete the TAE quickly.
