The Advanced First Aid Responder will be well trained in managing emergencies, injuries, and illnesses of a severe or serious nature. The advanced first aid responder will also need to take a leadership role at the emergency scenes or incidents and assist with scene management and coordination and other advanced first aid requirements. These functions could include assistance with calling and coordinating with the emergency services, police, and security for crowd control and safety matters.
Assisting with triage and disaster incident functions, such as prioritizing injured patients into various categories such as red – serious and needs immediate help, or yellow – severe injuries but can still wait for the serious to be treated first, or green – walking wounded and will be ok, or black – so serious that they should be left or are already deceased. The course is intended for fire and police departments, high-risk factory, industry, or mining H&S team members, or any delegate who requires first aid training at an advanced level.
The delegate would need to complete 10 days of facilitation as well 13 days of on-the-job workplace practical learning, to meet the required notional hours of 18 credits worth of training. Absolute Health Services will manage the delegate information upload process onto the Health and Welfare SETA portal and arrange for a verification visit to occur so that competent delegates can receive endorsement from the HWSETA. This is however a lengthy process, could take anything from 4 to 6 months or longer to complete and we have no control over the HWSETA processes and verifiers.
