First Aid

First Aid qualifications need to include CPR.

There are many different First Aid course providers across the country, however at ISPA, we recommend you choose a provider that is accredited  to deliver the course you are completing.

The accredited modules for first aid are:

  • HLTAID001

Accredited 1st Aid courses are usually valid for 5 years, however the CPR unit needs to be updated every 3 years.

Mental Health First Aid


Mental Health First Aid programmes offer a suite of early-intervention courses that increase mental health literacy and teach the practical skills needed to support someone experiencing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.


Both course providers shown above  offer  an accredited Mental Health  First Aid  programme.
