Before attending the practical training, students will need to complete their e-Learning which can be done in one sitting or over several sessions.

The course focuses on the skills and knowledge required to provide first aid care to a patient, the patient care required whilst waiting for an extended period of time (more than 2 hours from definitive care) for help to arrive, and also the skills and knowledge to co-ordinate an appropriate emergency response, including communications to emergency services and evacuation considerations.
