Childcare professionals - First aid, what you need to know

There are many opportunities within the booming early childhood and care industry in Australia, for both local and overseas job seekers. However, you need to have the right qualifications, as required by the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). The First Aid courses offered at the BCC Institute (BCCI) can satisfy the industry regulator that you have sufficient knowledge and skills to operate as a childcare professional.

Here is what you need to know.

Why is it important?
First aid training is the wisest career choice you will ever make. As in addition to being able to offer higher levels of care, this skill could be precisely what you require to stand out and have a competitive edge over fellow job seekers or colleagues. First aid HLTAIDOO4 is a compulsory unit for students completing a Certificate III or Diploma, so students need to demonstrate competencies in this unit.

We will make sure that you undertake the course that’s right for you and your career development, whilst providing the continuing education credits many employers are looking for. The First aid HLTAIDOO4 for Childcare Professionals course will cover elements such as:

  • How to respond to an emergency
  • Applying appropriate emergency first aid procedures
  • How to communicate the details of the incident
  • Evaluating an incident and the possible psychological impacts on self.
  • And much more!

Subsidised course fees
If already employed, you may qualify for reimbursement for part or full course-related expenses from your employer. Some can pay for you to take up your studies, while others require proof of completion before payment.

Getting the most out of your studies
It is not enough to just take a course on First Aid Training for Childcare Professionals to improve your skills. Where you study is equally important – that’s why at the BCC Institute we specialise in the early childhood and care industry and related courses.  So, take some time and make sure you're studying at the right place for you and where you’ll have the most positive experience, both personally and professionally.

At BCCI, First aid courses are offered on the third Saturday of every month. Helping to keep these essential skills up-to-date and giving you the confidence that you can provide emergency first aid in your education and care facility. For more information, click here.
