During this course, you will work through a series of activiites. These activities do more than let you practise the skill. They help you see how well you performed the skill and what you can do to improve.

For each skill, we take you through a series of activiites:

  1. Instructor Demo: The instructor demonstrates the skill at the speed it would normally take to complete the task.
  2. Class-Guided Practice: The instructor breaks down the demonstration while the class performs the skill with step-by-step guidance from the instructor.
  3. Peer-Assessment: Working in pairs or small groups, learners take turns performing the skill and giving each other feedback based on a checklist.
  4. Self-Assessment: Each learner assesses their performance and targets areas they need to improve.
  5. Deliberate Practice: Working in pairs or small groups, learners continue to practice the skill. The instructor is available to answer questions.

A lot of the theory you need will be covered in the Required Reading from the textbook, Occupational First Aid: A Reference and Training Manual. You will also gain knowledge from brief exercises and homework assignments.

In this learning environment, you are free to ask questions and learn from mistakes. You can monitor your progress at every stage. Before the final assessment, you will have several opportunities to work on areas that need improvement. When you return to your job, you will have the tools to continue practising, monitoring your performance, and improving your skills.

This is a hands-on course. For most of the course, you will be actively practising skills. To be successful, you need to be committed to your learning. This involves being on time, participating fully in class activities, completing required reading beforehand, and doing 1 to 3 hours of homework each night.

Being an OFA attendant is a potentially life-saving role. It takes effort to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills.
