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.

I have done my First Aid and CPR a couple of times and this has been the best course I have been to. The training was current up to date and very informative. The trainer was very friendly and made it a fun experience. Would recommend.read more

Ben was really good at explaining and demonstrating what we need to do in emergency situations as a first aid officer. He was able to answer every question that people asked him. I would recommend everyone to go and learn from this place 🙂read more

The education and care course was very well delivered and comprehensive. The instructor was excellent, and ensured everyone felt confident in their knowledge and skills before moving on to the next topic. Very low pressure course, focused primarily on quality of skills, not speed of learning. Will be coming back for my refreshers!read more
