We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we’re typically asked, along with our responses.

Can Centrelink pay for my course?

Centrelink does not make payments directly to training organisations for participants’ courses. What you will have to do is register with a local job agency, your case worker will make the booking with us on your behalf as well as arrange payment.

Can I pay for my course in instalments?

All courses must be paid for in full either at the time of booking or at the time of registration. Our training course prices are extremely competitive and high quality. We aim to make them as affordable as possible while still providing superior training solutions.

After my course, can you find me work?

Unfortunately Edway Training does not provide recruitment services. The best places to look for employment are recruitment agencies and labour hire companies. There are a few job-searching websites (eg. Seek, Gumtree). Google Search for specific or general job roles (eg. labourer or traffic controller) is also a great source.

I’ve lost my Childcare First Aid Certificate, what do I have to do? Do I have to do the course again?

To receive a replacement certificate simply call your training provider, they will be able to send you a copy of your certificate.

You are not required to resit the course if you have lost or misplaced your certificate.

How long is certificate valid for? When do I have to renew?

Your Childcare First Aid certificate has validity of 3 years from the date of when you sat the course.

The CPR component of the First Aid certificate is valid for 12 months and must be refreshed every year to keep your qualification up to date.

Do I have to carry my First Aid certificate on me/Is there a First Aid card I can obtain?

Generally speaking, no. However, employers might also ask you for a photocopied version to keep for their records.

There is a wallet sized plastic First Aid card that can be purchased from our offices. You will need to have your picture taken and some details recorded and the card will be sent in the mail within a few weeks.

What do I have to bring with me to class?

A participant needs to bring photo I.D. and completed 65 question workbook. The workbook can be downloaded from the link provided in booking confirmation email.

Edway Training provides all the necessary paperwork and first aid training equipment (e.g. manikins, training defibrillation, bandages).

Can I use my First Aid certificate in other states? Is it nationally recognised?

Yes, you can use your First Aid certificate in different states.

Provide First Aid HLTAID003 training is recognised and accepted Australia wide.

What do I receive on the day of training?

After successful completion of the end of the day assessment, participants are issued with the Provide First Aid HLTAID003 Statement of Attainment (Certificate).

Please note that completion of this course also provides Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) HLTAID001 and Provide Basic Emergency Life Support HLTAID002 qualifications.

What if I struggle with English?

As per WorkSafe Victoria requirements a basic understanding in the reading and writing of English is required.

Unfortunately the use of interpreters and translators is not allowed and participants are required to complete assessments by themselves. A Statement of Attainment cannot be issued if the assessments are not successfully completed. If you are unsure of your level of English, we suggest you discuss it with the trainer prior to the start of the class. Our trainer can assess your level of English and advise it is sufficient to complete the course.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept VISA/Mastercard payments as well as EFTPOS or cash. We can invoice your company, however, this needs to be arranged prior to your course.

What is your cancellation policy?

Generally we require 48 business hours notice to cancel a booking or transfer the training to a different date. Fees apply if a refund or transfer request is made within 48 hours of the starting time. For full terms and conditions, please refer to the Refund section of our Terms and Conditions.

  • CPR
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Burns and scalds
  • Head, chest and spinal injuries
  • Fainting and unconsciousness

  • Severed limbs

Can I do my First Aid online?

Some components that need to be assessed in order for you to pass the First Aid course are practical activities and cannot be done online.

What other similar courses does Edway offer?

Edway Training offers the CPR (HLTAID001) as a separate course for those who need to update their certification. This component needs to be renewed every 12 months.

We also offer the Childcare First Aid course (HLTAID004) which covers asthma, anaphylaxis and incident reporting. This course is required for those working in around children in an education or care environment. It costs an extra $50 and consists of everything learned in the First Aid training course plus the components mentioned above. This has an expiration term of 3 years.

What is the minimum age to complete the First Aid?

There is no minimum age to complete the First Aid training course.

Who regulates the training?

ASQA is the regulatory body for our First Aid training courses.

My English is not so good, can I bring a translator?

Please let us know when booking if you are going to bring a translator as we will have to reserve a seat for them.

What happens if I fail?

If you fail the exam we allow you to come back and re-sit the exam. You do not have to pay nor sit through the whole course again, we simply ask that you choose a date and time and come back to have another attempt at the exam.
