What is First Aid and the 3Ps?
First Aid refers to a set of interventions for a person in need of immediate medical care, applied before medical assistance becomes available.
First Aid awareness can be developed at any age, however 14 years is the starting point. Formal First Aid training, which comes with certification, involves learning complex techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, so under-14s are deemed too young for such demanding responsibilities.
The 3 basic principles of First Aid, or 3Ps are: Preserve life, Prevent further injury, and Promote recovery.
Students in training will constantly revisit these, strengthening their foundation in cutting edge First Aid techniques, as well as their abilities to make tough calls, act quickly under pressure, and exercise compassion.
The more people who understand the 3Ps and the actions behind them, the safer and healthier our home communities will become.
How Will First Aid Benefit Me?
First Aid knowledge is invaluable in times of medical emergency. This really hits home if you picture a family member falling victim to a life threatening accident, such as collapsing from a stroke or a heart attack.
With First Aid training under your belt, you’d have the chance to turn things around for the better… the chance of a lifetime.
Being able to intervene in a matter of life and death is what First Aid training is all about. And these are not skills reserved for medical professionals only. You can do this.
Your First Aid training will impact positively on you, your family, and your colleagues. You’ll feel calm and composed about the prospect of being called for medical assistance.
First Aid certification also improves your employability. You are more likely to get the job you’re after because you’ve demonstrated your willingness to take responsibility. Prospective employers can see this.
In addition, First Aid certification is a means of accruing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points, satisfying the requirements for career advancement in many industries.
About the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is where the city meets the surf. It’s home to some of Australia’s most famous beaches and it’s been dubbed the “Adventure Lover’s Playground.”
There’s something for everyone at the Gold Coast — from the eye candy of Surfers Paradise to the pristine nature reserves of the Gold Coast hinterland, from the boho charms of Burleigh Heads and white-knuckle rides at one of the many theme parks, to catching fish, catching rays and catching waves at points along the coast.
All that glitters is not immune from danger, however. With all this excitement, accidents do happen — anywhere and anytime. People are always getting banged up abroad. But it’s not just visitors. Locals too, suffer heat stroke. There are stingers, in the water and out. In the surf and in the pool, drowning continues to be an all-too frequent occurrence.
The Gold Coast’s attractions can be explored and enjoyed safely when we all do our part by learning life-saving First Aid skills.
Getting your First Aid certification helps make any community a safer place for all.
