We don't cancel courses due to low participant numbers...

Allens Training on the Sunshine Coast is committed to providing local CPR and first aid classes at times and on days that are convenient for our participants.

Evening CPR Courses on the Sunshine Coast

Allens Training on the Sunshine Coast run evening CPR courses in our Birtinya Training Centre the Sunshine Coast to cater for those that may work full-time and during the day.

The course HLTAID001 Provide Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation covers skills and knowledge required to perform CPR in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines. It is a 2-hour course and you will walk away knowing what to do if you find yourself needing to perform CPR.

Our next evening course is on Monday 12 March from 5pm to 7pm.

Why learn CPR?

There are several situations when performing CPR could make all the difference and in many cases, it will be family members that need your help. Effective CPR will keep oxygen flowing in the patient until help arrives, so if you are trained in CPR you can be confident in providing the best response possible.

Furthermore, having a current national recognised CPR qualification is a core requirement for many jobs.

How much does the CPR course cost?

This course costs $55

How do I book?

To book into our Next Sunshine Coast CPR course please book online.

If you are a nurse, student, or health professional on the Sunshine Coast, or if you are just looking to renew your CPR qualification, view our course calendar and book your next course.

No course cancellations if numbers are low

Our nationally recognised training at 8/10 Capital Place, Birtinya Qld 4575, can accommodate a maximum of 25 students. But rest assured that your course will not be cancelled if numbers are nowhere near the maximum. You can rely on our calendar to accurately list available courses; we will not cancel courses with low booking numbers, even if there is only one participant.

To provide more choices for students, Allens Training Sunshine Coast has scheduled some additional Saturday courses, as well as extra CPR classes on weekday evenings. Check out our calendar at https://www.allensfirstaid.com.au/ to see the latest schedule.

If you haven’t done training in the last year, it is probably time to refresh your CPR skills. You can book into HLTAID001 Provide Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation to refresh your skills and renew the knowledge required to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

And how long has it been since you did a first aid course? Act now and book into your next HLTAID003 Provide First Aid course to learn all the necessary skills and knowledge required to provide first aid responses, life support, and management of casualties, the incident and other first aiders, until the arrival of medical or other assistance.

By refreshing your first aid training, you ensure your skills are up-to-date with the latest knowledge and treatments methods.

*Sharps and Infectious Waste Course - 16 April 2018*

On Monday 16 April 2018, Allens Training will deliver a Course in Safe Handling of Sharps and Infectious Waste (10685NAT) at our Birtinya Training Centre on the Sunshine Coast. This course is open to the public, and you can secure your spot in the course by phoning 07 5438 8888.

Summary

Allens Training developed and delivers the nationally recognised 10685NAT Course in Safe Handling of Sharps and Infectious Waste. This course has been designed for participants such as council rangers, parks and city service officers, domestic and commercial cleaners, medical staff and first aid officers, and waste and recycling collection and processing staff.

This unit describes the outcomes that will provide vital skills and knowledge on how to recognise sharps, evaluate risks and implement control measures to facilitate the safe removal of sharps and other material that may be contaminated with blood and body fluids.

Furthermore, we have previously delivered this course to a number of tow truck businesses across Queensland. Feedback we received from these businesses is that they:

would like their own staff to be trained in this so that they don’t have to outsource this type of work
need this training for insurance purposes and to meet RACQ requirements
want to ensure the safety of their staff.
Who needs this certificate?

This certificate will assist all staff involved in the handling of infectious waste and sharps, and all staff who are aware, or who need to be aware, of the requirement to follow Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).

This course is intended to provide participants with a range of knowledge, skills, and generic and specific competencies to assist in safely performing the following job role(s):

Council rangers
Parks and city service officers
Domestic and commercial cleaners
Medical staff and first aid officers (remote areas e.g. mine sites)
Waste and recycling collection and processing staff.
Knowing what to do in the first few minutes following a sharps injury or contact with contaminated material and, importantly, implementing control measures, can make all the difference in reducing risks and hazards.

In the community setting, a needle stick injury is rare and usually arises from the accidental puncturing of the skin by a syringe needle left in places such as parks, playgrounds, laneways or public toilets. However, for people who encounter sharps and contaminated materials hazards in the course of their work, the risks are not so rare. Knowing what to do, and how to do it, become crucial for their work health and safety.

One of the ways to reduce risk is to regularly undertake safety refresher courses. With this in mind, Allens Training Sunshine Coast has scheduled a 10685NAT Course in Safe Handling of Sharps and Infectious Waste for Monday 16 April 2018, starting at 8.30am at our Birtinya training centre – 8/10 Capital Place, Birtinya Qld 4575.

Assessment

Assessment at the end of the course is to show the instructor that you can recognise sharps and infectious waste, and that you have an appropriate understanding of the precautions and procedures necessary to manage a situation where sharps and infectious waste need to be safely removed and contained.

This will consist of a theory assessment and practical demonstrations.

What will I gain?

At the successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a nationally recognised statement of attainment.

How much is the course?

$130.00 per participant.

Course duration

Six hours face-to-face training

How do I book?

To arrange a booking, or for more information, please phone 07 5438 8888.

*Advanced First Aid Course - 18 May 2018*

On Friday 18 May 2018, Allens Training Sunshine Coast is delivering a Provide Advanced First Aid (HLTAID006) Course in our Birtinya Training Centre at 8/10 Capital Place. This course is open to the public, and you can secure your spot in the course by booking online, or by phoning 07 5438 8888.

This advanced first aid course (including CPR) course will give you the skills and knowledge required to provide an advanced first aid response, life support, management of casualties, management of the incident and other first aiders, in a range of situations, including in the home, workplace or within the community, until the arrival of medical or other assistance.

Who needs this certificate?

The most common first aid course required by most employers and workplaces is HLTAID003 Provide First Aid. We offer this courses up to six times in our Sunshine Coast First Aid Training Centre and also offer CPR recertifications and first aid refresher courses regularly. However, certain tertiary study and job positions require people to hold a current Advanced First Aid (HLTAID006) certificate.

The unit applies to workers who may be required to provide, coordinate and manage a first aid response across a range of complex situations, including community and workplace settings. This could include jobs such as rescue workers, lifesavers, ski patrol, and construction site workers.

Advanced First Aid has some elements and performance criteria additional to what is required for HLTAID003. For example, Advanced First Aiders are expected to be able to coordinate first aid activities until arrival of medical assistance. So Advanced First Aid includes a more supervisory aspect, and a deeper level of evaluation and review.

In practice, the Advanced First Aider may carry out additional procedures such as the use of a bag valve mask (BVM), extra work around spinal injuries, and extra work around assessing the patient (i.e. using a pulse oximeter). An earlier blog on our website contains further explanation.

What will I gain?

At the successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a statement of attainment valid for 3 years*. The certificate will contain the following units:

HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

HLTAID002 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support

HLTAID003 Provide First Aid

HLTAID006 Provide Advanced First Aid

How much is the course?

$180.00 per participant.

How do I book?

NE CHILD EVERY WEEK IS RAN OVER IN AN AUSTRALIAN DRIVEWAY

With two separate incidents with tragically similar circumstances, just days before Christmas it’s a timely reminder to be careful in your driveways. News.com.au report - http://www.news.com.au/national/two-children-struck-by-reversing-cars-in-separate-incidents/news-story/8462b1469a3cdb8912047e6c05f88e6a

Have you ever thought about writing/creating a family agreement or policy for reversing cars with small children around? If not, now is the time to think seriously about it.

The South Australian Government reports – “On average, seven children are killed each year and 60 seriously injured after being hit or run over by a motor vehicle at home. Very young children are at greatest risk. 90% of children killed and 70% of those seriously injured are under five years of age.”
Whilst a number of cars now days are fitted with safety/reversing cameras, they can have blind spots aswell. Being conscious of your surroundings and making your children and family aware of the dangers in this situations is vital.

Kids Safe NSW have four main tips to help keep your children safer:
• Always supervise any children whenever a vehicle is to be moved - hold their hands or hold them close to keep them safe.
• If you’re the only adult around and need to move a vehicle, even just a small distance, put children securely in the vehicle with you while you move it.
• Encourage children to play in safer areas away from the driveway and cars - the driveway is like a small road and should not be used as a play area.
• Limit a child’s access to the driveway – for example use security doors, fencing or gates

RACV not only provide information on ‘Keeping some simple ideas in mind can make a huge difference to the safety of children in your care. Supervise, Separate, See’. But also have the ‘Elmo Stays Safe app’ that you can download on your iPad for kids to become aware aswell.

- Checking on your children should be the last thing you do before you get into the car.
- When you’re putting your children in the car, remind them that reversing cars are extremely dangerous.
- Create a checklist with things like the following and make it routine to go through before you reverse.

Below are some further links to refer to for information and documentation relating to driveway and children safety!
