Your nationally accredited statement of attainment will be emailed to you as a digital PDF file within 24 hours of the course ending (generally on the same day).

Yes. USI numbers have been mandatory for any sort of formal accredited training in Australia since 2015. If you’ve studied since then, you should already have one – you just need to provide it to First Aid Course Experts with your other enrollment information. If you don’t have one, there’s no need to worry – they cost nothing to get and only take a few minutes to apply for. Just head to the USI website to get started –

HLTAID001 is the older, now outdated version of HLTAID009. The HLTAID009 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation training module is defined by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training. Over the years, there have been several different versions of the course, including HLTAID001, HLTCPR211A, HLTCPR201B, and HLTCPR201A. If you’re working in a role and are told you need to have any of those older certificates, HLTAID009 is the most current version of that training and should be accepted in its place.

Yes, our training courses are compliant with and endorsed by many of the peak bodies in the industry – including the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC), Safe Work Australia, the National Asthma Council, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA), and the Epilepsy Foundation.

We work hard to ensure the safety and welfare of our students, and one part of that is to make sure we follow the current government guidelines around Covid safety – including social distancing, PPE (including masks) and sign-ins. Please respect your trainer’s instructions on these issues, or you may be asked to leave the training session.

For reference, we run training in a number of venues that require full covid-19 vaccination to be admitted on site. This is not a requirement set by First Aid Course Experts, but rather a requirement of the venue itself – often in response to government covid regulations that apply to the venue. If this is an area of concern for you, it’s a really good idea to log onto the venue’s website ahead of time to check what restrictions apply.

Our course calendar has a wide variety of dates and times available for training, including a number of weekend sessions – for those who are unavailable during standard working hours. You’re free to book the session that best suits your schedule.

No. Whether it’s online or face-to-face, you’re getting the same level of training, and the certificate you receive at the end is identical. The format of your course is purely a matter of personal choice – it doesn’t affect the level of certification you receive.
