Childcare centre receives specialised first aid training

25 May 2021
South Lake Early Learning Centre staff recently participated in specialised Childcare First Aid training with Royal Life Saving WA trainer Leanne Coverley-Brandis. A private group training session was arranged by the centre for team members to complete the HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting course.

The course is designed for educators, childcare staff and support staff working within an education and care setting and provides the knowledge and practical skills to respond to a first aid emergency and provide first aid treatment. The course is tailored specifically to early education and childcare centres, focusing on child-related emergency scenarios such as asthmatic and anaphylactic emergencies.

Under the Education and Care Services National Law and National Regulations, childcare providers and educators must undertake approved anaphylaxis management training and emergency asthma management training.

South Lake Early Learning Centre Supervisor Nelsie Johnson said, “for the last six years we finally found a trainer who not only understands our industry but is able to relate and gives us the training that is tailored to our needs.”

“Leanne has provided our staff the tools and the practicality of what we need to equip ourselves in real life. Thank you, Royal Life Saving WA, for the flexibility and for supporting Leanne to deliver the workshops and courses at South Lake Early Learning Centre,” she said.

The HLTAID012 Provide First Aid in an Education and Care Setting course is on the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA)’s list of approved first aid, emergency asthma and anaphylaxis qualifications for education and care providers.Learn more about the course at the link below.
