Provide First Aid is the minimum First Aid course for any first aider in the workplace and replaces courses previously known as Senior First Aid or Apply First Aid. Following the guidelines set by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), METS recommends first aiders also update their CPR skills every 12 months.


Upon successful completion of enrolment, training and assessment, learners who are competent receive a Statement of Attainment for: HLTAID011 Provide First Aid (valid for 3 years) which includes HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (valid for 12 months).

Pre Requisites

Participants must be 14 years of age or over (those under 18 must present an enrolment form from a parent or guardian). This course requires every participant to complete a variety of First Aid scenarios including practical assessments. If your health/fitness restricts you from completing all required scenarios, you still will be able to participate but may not be eligible to receive the nationally-recognised First Aid certificate.

Am I eligible for a traineeship?

To be eligible to commence a traineeship, a participant must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident working full or part time (minimum 15 hours). The participant must have the support of their employer, an accredited RTO and an Australian Apprenticeship Centre.

How do I find a traineeship?

Finding a traineeship is similar to finding any job. You’ll need to network with employers and job recruitment agencies and market yourself within your chosen sector.

I am not eligible for a traineeship. Can I still complete the qualification?

If a participant is ineligible for a traineeship due to their employment status (casual, part-time working under 15 hours etc.), they can still complete the course as a Fee for Service Student.

If a participant is ineligible for a traineeship due to their residency status, they can in some cases still complete the qualification Self-Funded, however visa restrictions do apply. It is best to speak to your immigration officer and/or us regarding your eligibility.

What kind of assessments will I be completing?

Depending on the unit of study, you will complete both theory and practical based assessments to achieve competency in your qualification. Assessments may include short answer, project work, case students and reflection logs.

Can I extend by traineeship if I am not able to complete it by the end date?

Yes. Under certain circumstances your traineeship can be extended, however this process can take some time and applying for an extension should be considered as a last resort. You should speak to us and/or your Australian Apprenticeship Centre if you are considering applying for an extension.
