Brisbane CBD is a prominent business hub, as Brisbane is the third most populated city in Australia. Known as the river city and surrounded by inner city suburbs such as Red Hill, Paddington, Spring Hill, Fortitude Valley, Petrie Terrace, New Farm, South Brisbane, Woolloongabba, and Kangaroo Point, Brisbane is known for its beautiful sub tropical climate.

Most of us had our first CPR training experience at school, but for many that is a distant memory and we have likely forgotten most of it. But now the Brisbane First Aid scene provides so many options to refresh those skills. attaining advanced knowledge, and first aid training that’s tailor-fit to particular careers has never been so easy.

Brisbane is one of our prominent training locations. Queensland’s capital city and most populous metropolitan area in the state 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 gain employment in an industry which its community—and one sure way to do that is to complete an accredited Brisbane first aid course and have the tools to confidently manage any emergency first aid response.

What is First Aid?

First aid can be described as the stopgap measure 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 others.

What Are the Benefits 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. First aid knowledge can also equip you to fill the role of a Good Samaritan, ready to help a stranger who may be in the middle of a heart attack, stroke, or any other conceivable adverse health event. 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 your workplace including its social engagements. 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 a significant plus to your future employment prospects. In many careers, first aid certification from a nationally recognised organisation is a prerequisite. In others, the certification could yield an increase in one’s pay rate. Lastly, first aid certification is a good way to accrue credits in your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. All these benefits truly add up, which is why you should enrol in an accredited first aid training course.
