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 20 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.
