Australia Wide First Aid has long prided itself as the leader in Innovative First Aid Solutions. As a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO No. 31961), Australia Wide First Aid provides both online and face-to-face training programs. What’s more, we also do our best to implement effective management practices to keep standards compliant with the VET Quality Framework. This includes regular consultation with industry experts and ensuring that our courses are following the guidelines set by the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR).
Our classes are conducted by qualified trainers and assessors. To make it easier for students to attend our courses, we hold classes 7 days a week in easy-to-reach locations across the country. Our classes typically last 1 day, and we offer fast-tracked courses that are specially designed for students with busy schedules. In addition, we can also hold group sessions on our students’ home or workplace.
One of Australia Wide First Aid’s training locations is in Clayton, a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria. Located just 19 km from Melbourne’s central business district, Clayton is one of the largest centres of scientific, technological, and research activities in the country and serves as home to well-known schools, hospitals, and research centres. By holding regular courses in this suburb, Australia Wide First Aid is making first aid training more accessible to the people based in the area.
What’s First Aid?
First aid is technically a stopgap measure provided to sick or injured people before the professionals arrive to administer advanced medical care. It’s sometimes enough for minor injuries but can make a big difference for more serious situations. It also goes beyond simply knowing how to alleviate pain or dress up wounds.
First aid includes simple ideas such as basic hygiene to more complex actions such as conducting proper Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). First aid training not only gives you the knowledge to help people in times of emergency, it also allows you to do just that without putting your own life or safety at risk.
Why Do You Need to Learn First Aid
No matter where you are, it’s always best to know what to do when someone near you gets injured or suffers a medical emergency like a heart attack or seizure. After all, a person’s life might just be saved by a Good Samaritan with first aid training or knowledge of CPR.
Training with Australia Wide First Aid offers additional benefits that others may not have, besides a guarantee of the best pricing possible. This includes nationally recognised training, option for 1-day courses, same-day certification, and access to first aid supplies. And if you’re registering for a group of 8 people or more, you can also take advantage of on-site first aid training.
Are You Qualified to Do First Aid?
Remember that having first aid knowledge isn’t just for coping with unexpected emergencies. It can be described as an unavoidable aspect of any Australian workplace, as many businesses and facilities are required to have at least 1 person who can provide first aid in times of emergency.
Students need to be at least 14 years old to take an accredited first aid course that will earn them a Statement of Attainment. Those younger than 18 years old need to present parental consent prior to attending a course. After completing the assessment and attending the face-to-face training, all successful students will be able to receive a digital copy of their Statement of Attainment, which proves that they are trained to provide first aid.
