FIRST AID TRAINING COURSES IN
BRISBANE

A number of us might have learned first aid in our early school years but have forgotten some concepts along the way. But now there are myriad opportunities to level up basic first aid skills, attain advanced knowledge, and acquire first aid training that’s tailor-fit to particular careers. Those are the opportunities that Australia Wide First Aid seeks to provide: avenues for every Australian to become proficient at administering first aid techniques. Australia Wide First Aid is a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961) that caters to would-be first aiders from all over Australia. We are endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN), and all our would-be enrollees can trust us to deliver first aid training at a reputable standard.

Australia Wide First Aid conducts first aid training in 21 locations across the country. We offer regular and express first aid training courses for students on tight schedules. Upon completing a course, you will receive certification as a first aider in only 1 day. Our classes take place in reachable and convenient venues, but you can also book us for face-to-face group sessions at your home or workplace. We commit to making first aid training easily accessible to Australians from all walks of life.

Brisbane is one of our foremost training locations. Known as the capital city and most populous metropolitan area in the state of Queensland, Brisbane has beautiful architecture and a booming tourism industry. It is also a popular destination for sporting and cultural events. These characteristics make Brisbane an exceptionally livable city and an ideal place to launch one’s career or start a family. The key to integrating into Brisbane’s way of life is to work in service of its community—and one sure way to do that is to learn first aid.

What Is First Aid?

First aid pertains to the stopgap measures to help a sick or injured person before full medical assistance becomes available. The range of commonly taught first aid procedures includes: immediate treatment of wounds and burns, application of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and treatment of asthma and anaphylactic shock.

Aspiring first aiders will learn what it means to follow the 3 basic principles, or 3 P’s of first aid: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. First aid training will involve grappling with the challenges of thinking on one’s feet, applying first aid techniques properly, keeping a cool head, and making difficult decisions under pressure. It will also impart the key values of mental strength, trustworthiness, clarity of mind, and above all, compassion for one’s fellowman.

What Are the Pluses of Learning First Aid?

The first big plus of being a certified first aider is: you can be someone’s first line of defense in case of emergency. This applies to any loved one of yours who is in delicate health or who might be suffering from a chronic illness. But first aid knowledge can also see you through the role of the Good Samaritan, ready to help a stranger in the middle of a heart attack or a stroke. We can’t foresee when these things happen—but we can have the foresight to learn to save someone’s life.

Even outside of medical emergencies happening in real-time, first aid knowledge has many pluses. You’ll be a capable guardian to your family members while you’re on vacation, as well as a much-needed asset at company outings. You can even apply what you’ve learned to your own personal situation and keep calm in case you yourself suffer an injury or bout of sickness.

First aid certification is also a significant plus to your future employers. In some careers, first aid certification from a nationally recognised organisation is a prerequisite for eligibility to a certain position. In others, the certification could yield an increase in one’s pay grade. Lastly, first aid certification is a good way to accrue pluses in your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. All these benefits truly add up, which is why you should consider a first aid training course.

How Does One Become a First Aider?

To become an authorised first aider, you need to earn a Statement of Attainment. Australia Wide First Aid awards this statement of attainment to students who’ve completed the required units of their module. Statements can be gained from regular modules and their express counterparts, technique-specific modules, or workplace-specific modules.

Students need to be at least 14 years of age to enrol in an accredited first aid training course with Australia Wide First Aid. All minors under the age of 18 must submit the form ensuring parental consent. They will become bona fide first aiders upon completing training and receiving their Statement of Attainment.
