Had to complete my first aid and CPR as soon as possible for my new job requirement and these guys were absolutely amazing! Availabilities were there for me to complete my course any weekday as early as the next day and the online component of the course made it much easier to fit into my schedule! Highly recommend Fluid First Aid!read more

Does my certificate include Asthma and Anaphylaxis?

Yes and no… Your certificate will not have individual asthma and anaphylaxis units listed on it. However, the unit HLTAID004 fully satisfies ACECQA requirements for first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis training, so the individual units are not required. You can personally verify this by searching for the unit in the Qualifications List on the ACECQA website.

When does my certificate expire?

The HLTAID004 certificate should be renewed every 3 years and the Provide CPR unit every 12 months.

As an added service, we will send you email and SMS reminders from 45 days before units are due to be updated.
