What to learn in order to save a life
Life-threatening situations require quick intervention. And knowing what to do is vital.
First aid answers this call. It is a foundation that strengthens with time, training, and experience.
As a nationally registered training organisation (RTO 31961), Australia Wide First Aid makes this important first aid knowledge available to Australians in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia.
What is first aid and why does it matter?
First aid is a set of game-changing measures for early responders to apply to a sick or injured person until full medical assistance arrives at the scene.
Common first aid techniques that can be learned by almost anyone include:
- Providing reassurance to the casualty
- Dressing & bandaging wounds
- Relieving pain
- Treating burns
- Treating sprains & fractures
More advanced techniques include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and treatment for anaphylactic shock.
Learning how to apply these techniques is a prerequisite for specialised employment, such as in the childcare sector.
Regardless of where you are in your first aid journey, whether you are a first-timer or renewing your first aid certification again, your focus will always be on the 3Ps of first aid:
• Preserve life
• Prevent further injury, and
• Promote recovery.
Alongside proficiency in the techniques themselves, as a first aider, you’ll develop mental strength and fortitude, calmness, and the confidence to act when someone is in trouble.
Australia Wide First Aid is on a mission to give everyone in Australia access to training and certification in first aid.
When more people become confident in administering the 3Ps, the more the wider Australian community benefits.
What are the key benefits of learning first aid?
Being proficient in first aid has many benefits. Top of the list is that being trained in first aid means you’ll have the confidence to be a first responder when someone is in need of quick medical intervention. While this might involve a stranger, it could likely involve a work colleague, or a loved one at home.
If you’re trained in first aid, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and techniques, as well as being relatively calm in the situation, to step in and give the victim the very best chance of survival.
First aid knowledge also has benefits outside of medical emergencies. People who know that you have first aid expertise — your family members, schoolmates, officemates, etc — will automatically feel more relaxed in your presence. Feeling safer will do that. As a consequence, you will have a great opportunity to make your case for safer and more enjoyable vacations and outings for the group.
When it comes to building your career, first aid will give you an edge, regardless of whether it’s a prerequisite for a position or not. It says a lot about a person who would acquire the skills to help others.
First aid certification can factor into a pay raise. It can also contribute to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points that many Australian professionals accrue.
If you’re not already convinced about the many benefits to be had from first aid proficiency, wait until you see the faces looking at you in gratitude when you step up to help…
