Due to the fact that you have a legal duty of care to your members, it is an industry and insurance requirement that all martial arts instructors have current first aid qualifications……yet so many don’t, or allow the currency of their training to lapse.
First Aid certification is required to be updated or renewed every 3 years, whilst the CPR component need to be updated ANNUALLY.
It is not a requirement to be an existing GFI student to complete the course, and we also recognize qualifications previously attained via other organizations.
The unit of competency : HLTAID003, along with HLTAID001 (CPR) provides students with the skills and knowledge to effectively provide emergency response and apply basic life support.
Topics covered include life support, management of casualty(s) and incident management until the arrival of medical or other assistance.
Whether you require your certification for workplace or personal or domestic needs, Global Fitness Institute provides a range of customized and online first aid training with flexible delivery options available throughout Australia.
This online first aid course is made up of videos, reading materials and an online quiz that students can complete on-line in their own time, prior to attending a single theory reinforcement and practical training and assessment session. This is an ideal and popular format for those who are time poor.
Those updating their qualifications are able to upload video evidence performing practical assessment requirements.
