First Aid for Martial Arts
Global Fitness Institute conducts regular First Aid courses for martial arts schools and associations. These can be held at our campus or at your school, anywhere in Australia.
Book a group session for your club or association, simply contact us.
As part of our flexible delivery model, for those who need their qualification in a hurry or are unable to attend scheduled classes, we do offer the opportunity for 1-on-1 classes, either at our campus or your location (by approval), for additional surcharge. This option will appear on the checkout page at the time of purchasing the product.
All instructors have a legal duty of care to their members. It is an industry and insurance requirement that all martial arts instructors have current first aid qualifications. However, so many don’t, which puts both the instructor, and organization, at a huge risk of negligence. Most significantly, it puts your students and greater risk of incorrect handling of an injury.
First Aid certification is required to be updated or renewed every 3 years, whilst the CPR component need to be updated ANNUALLY.
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.
All martial arts instructors, coaches and officials need to be first aid trained and qualified. This not only meets insurance requirements, but most importantly, protects the safety of your members.
Topics covered include life support, management of casualty(s) and incident management until the arrival of medical or other assistance.
This online first aid course is made up of videos, reading materials and an online quiz. Students must complete these in their own time, prior to attending the prac session. Upon completion, students attend a theory reinforcement, practical training and assessment session.
