Our main campus is located at U39 / 617-643 Spencer St, West Melbourne, but we also consider where majority of the students have to travel from. We try to group people from the same location together and hire out venues that are closer to home making it easier for you to travel to. The exact location of the classes will be confirmed once you talk to a representative of Melbourne College of Further Education (MCFE).

You will need to bring a drivers licence or passport with you for proof of identity and your Unique Student Identifier (USI). If you do not have a USI, we can assist you in creating one.

Your first aid doesn’t expire as such, however there is a requirement to refresh your skills and knowledge to ensure the information is current and reflects best practice.

HLTAID003 – Provide First Aid and HLTAID004 – Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting should be refreshed every 3 years.

HLTAID001 – Perform CPR should be refreshed every 12 months.

You will receive a statement of attainment within 10 business days of your final assessment, providing any outstanding fees are paid in full and your Unique Student Identifier (USI) has been provided and verified.

We use first aid books written by John Haines which include QR code technology, allowing access to over 30 video demonstrations, giving you the visual demonstration that goes along with the text. This book is yours to keep and will help you maintain your skills and knowledge. Listed below are the specific books for each course:

First Aid classes –  Emergency First Aid

CPR – Defibrillation and CPR

We currently undertake group training in the workplace and are happy to work with employers and companies to put together a training schedule. Please note that there must be a minimum of 10 people in the class. Group quotes are available on request.
