Is this the right course for me?

This Childcare First Aid course has been designed for the early childhood education industry. It covers the training requirements for first aid, asthma, anaphylaxis and legislation surrounding the early education industry.

This Childcare First Aid course is suited to all persons, including:

  • Childcare workers
  • Early education centres

Allies Training Centre has designed a flexible training program, which consists of a combination of self-study at home (which may take up to 12 hours, but varies from learner to learner), and face-to-face learning and written assessment.

The First Aid In The Workplace Code of Practice states that first aid should be renewed every 3 years, and the CPR component every 12 months required to be a competent First Aid officer.

Courses are run every Sunday. We can also offer the program on days suitable for a group bookings.
