What is First Aid, and Why Does It Matter?
There are many vast skills and knowledge covered under the banner of first aid. For many first aiders it means this: first aid is the very first set of stopgap measures applied to a sick or injured person until full medical assistance arrives at the scene. Common first aid techniques that can be learned by everyone are: providing reassurance to the casualty, dressing and bandaging wounds, relieving pain, treating burns, and looking after sprains or fractures. More advanced techniques include cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and treatment for anaphylactic shock. In some cases, learning how to apply these techniques is a prerequisite for specialised employment, such as in the child care services sector.
Regardless of where we are in our first aid journey, be it as first-timers or health professionals returning to renew first aid certification, first aiders focus is always around 3 basic yet broad principles known as the (3Ps) of first aid: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. Alongside proficiency in the techniques themselves, first aiders will learn to develop mental strength and fortitude, calmness, and the confidence to act when someone is in trouble. The more people who are trained and confident in administering the 3Ps, the more our entire community benefits. That is why Australia Wide First Aid is on a mission to get everyone in Australia trained and certified in first aid.
What are the Key Advantages of Learning First Aid?
Being proficient in first aid has many advantages. Top of the list is that by being trained in first aid means that we can confidently be a first line of defence when someone needs us. Whether it be a stranger we encounter in public, a work colleague, or a loved one at home. If you know first aid, you will be equipped with the knowledge, techniques and the frame of mind to step in and give them the very best chance of survival.
First aid knowledge is also useful outside of medical emergencies. If your family members, schoolmates, or officemates are aware that you can apply first aid, they’ll feel safe, protected, and relaxed in your presence. As a whole, that can make vacations and outings even more enjoyable for the group.
Lastly, first aid will gives us an edge when it comes to building our careers, regardless of whether it is a prerequisite for a position. Proper first aid certification can factor into a pay raise, and it can also contribute to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points that Australian professionals accrue. In other words, there are many valuable advantages to be had from first aid proficiency, which all add up to making it more than worth our while to enrol in an accredited first aid training course.
How Can I Acquire and Retain My Status as a First Aid Provider?
It’s as simple as registering for a unique student identifier (USI), if you don’t already have one, then enrol with Australia Wide First Aid either via our website or over the phone through one of our friendly customer service team.
To be eligible to enrol and be issued with a Statement of Attainment, a student must first meet the minimum age requirement, which is set at 14 years of age.
