HLTAID006 What skills and knowledge will I get from this course?

Performance Evidence

The candidate must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role.

There must be demonstrated evidence that the candidate has completed the following tasks at least once in line with state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines and workplace procedures:

  • located and interpreted workplace policies and procedures
  • conducted a hazard assessment and identified strategies to minimise risk
  • demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  • conducted a basic triage for a multiple casualty incident
  • assessed airway, breathing and responsiveness of casualty/casualties
  • performed eight minutes of uninterrupted CPR on both an adult and an infant resuscitation manikin placed on the floor, demonstrating the following techniques on each:

  • checking for response and normal breathing
  • recognise abnormal breathing
  • opening and clearing the airway
  • using correct hand location, compression depth rate in line with the ARC recommended ratio of compressions and ventilations
  • acting in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • following single rescuer procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  • following two rescuer procedure, as both the ventilator and the compressor
  • activated and followed the prompts of an AED


Conducted a secondary survey, including checking pulse of at least one person and recording pulse rate

Applied first aid procedures for the following:

  • allergic reactions
  • anaphylaxis
  • asthma
  • basic wound care
  • burns
  • cardiac arrest
  • choking and airway obstrution
  • convulsions
  • envenomation (using pressure immobilisation)
  • epilepsy
  • eye injuries
  • fractures, sprains and strains (using arm slings, roller bandages or other appropriate immobilisation techniques)
  • head and spinal injuries
  • poisoning
  • respiratory distress
  • severe bleeding
  • shock
  • thermal injuries

 Demonstrated correct usage of the following devices:

  • cervical collars
  • spinal boards, back boards and stretchers

  • direction and coordination of other first aiders
  • post-incident debrief and evaluation

Provided an accurate verbal report of the incident

Completed a written incident report

Responded to at least three simulated emergency scenarios contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting


Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate essential knowledge required to effectively complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the work role. This includes knowledge of:

  • state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures including:

ARC guidelines relevant to provision of CPR and first aid

  • guidelines of Australian national peak clinical bodies
  • safe work practices to deal with risks and potential hazards including manual handling, hazardous substances, dangerous goods and chemicals
  • infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions based on incident
