Course Details

First Aid Training can protect and save lives. Our Child care First Aid course will give you the confidence to respond to an emergency situation and we will teach you the relevant skills to administer First Aid. Our experienced First Aid coaches are here to help you gain those skills and you will learn First Aid from the best.

Do you work in childcare or are you a teacher and do you need a First Aid Certificate HLTAID004? Completing a Childcare First Aid Course with us will give you the confidence and this could make the difference when it comes to saving a child’s life.

This training is suitable for anyone working in long day care, family day care, preschool and outside of school hours (OOSH) care services.

First Aid Coach Sydney’s First Aid Course for Teachers  and Childcare workers HLTAID004 is suited for everyone, including:

  • Childcare workers
  • Teachers
  • Parents, families, babysitters and carers

We are partnered with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 32268).

Training Program

Our course includes 3 components:

1. Pre-study & online-assessment

2. Practical training 

3. Assessment for both knowledge & skills

All participants should allow up to three (3) hours for the pre-study to be completed. If you have completed First Aid training in the past, you may be able to finish the pre-study in a shorter timeframe.

Because of the online pre-study, our practical session will take around 4 1/2 hours.

If organising group bookings for 5 or more people, please contact us for pricing. We can facilitate you with flexible times for your course – early morning, evening and weekend courses are available at no extra cost. Contact us today for your First Aid group booking.


This course requires every participant to complete a variety of First Aid scenarios including practical assessments. If your health/fitness restricts you from completing all required scenarios, you still will be able to participate but may not be eligible to receive the nationally accredited Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting certificate.

What is the difference between Provide First Aid and Senior First Aid?

The Australian government is regularly updating its national standards in regards to First Aid certification. In the latest update, it changed the Senior First Aid course to the new Provide First Aid course.

For all students with a current Provide or Senior First Aid certification, nothing significant has changed except the name and a handful of teaching requirements. 

If you currently hold a Senior First Aid certificate and it is due to expire, you will need to enrol for this course (Provide First Aid) to renew it. Only this course will provide you with a workplace approved First Aid certificate.

Please call us on 02 8021 1547 if you have any questions.
