First Aid Course – Sydney CBD Emergency Training
You’ve found a First Aid course in Sydney designed to fit your busy life.
Our e-Learning approach to First Aid training means you do much of your coursework online and at your convenience. The face-to-face aspect of your First Aid training is minimised. You can schedule it for a time that suits.
First Aid training venues in Sydney don’t get any more centrally located than ours — inside the iconic Dymocks Building on George Street, the oldest and arguably, the most famous street in Australia and smack bang in the middle of Sydney’s CBD!
In Sydney, or anywhere else for that matter, when there’s a medical emergency, effective First Aid is vital to people in need. Every second counts. And no one wants to be that guy who stands there helplessly, hoping someone else will know what to do.

What You’ll Learn in Your First Aid Course
With Australia Wide First Aid, you’ll learn a wide range of First Aid skills. Most importantly, you’ll learn what it takes to act quickly and decisively in an emergency situation in order to help an injured or ill person.
AED and CPR training
You’ll know what to do when the person has stopped breathing. CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer in many emergency situations. It’s a wonder learning it isn’t part of every school-kid’s education.
You’ll learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This is the heart-starter paramedics use to shock a person undergoing cardiac arrest. Timely use of an AED has saved countless lives.
Wound care is another important facet of First Aid. You’ll learn correct bandaging techniques to manage cuts, sprains, burns and bites, as well as injuries to bones, muscles and joints. You’ll also be shown recommended First Aid management for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.
Breathing and Choking
Checking the breathing of a casualty and clearing the airway if called for, are important First Aid techniques. You’ll learn how, as well as what to do when a person is choking, be they infant or adult. You’ll also learn the appropriate ways to provide First Aid for managing an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.
You’ll learn how to safely treat a person who has been poisoned, whether the toxin was inhaled, ingested, or injected by needle or fang.
Unexpected medical emergencies
Your First Aid course will also have you ready to respond if there’s an unexpected medical emergency — from fainting to epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. Your training will allow you to think quickly and act confidently. You’ll be able to take steps to help avoid disastrous outcomes.
Emergencies can happen in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. With your First Aid training, you’ll be ready for the kind of action that saves lives.
Our First Aid classes teach you not only appropriate emergency responses, but also what to look for, and how to stay safe yourself.
Australia Wide First Aid Delivers
Our First Aid training is COVID-safe. Hygiene and social distancing are maintained at all times.
We provide one-on-one, as well as group First Aid classes. The group classes can be held at your site, which means that the First Aid training can be customised to suit your specific environment.
Our industry-experienced, fully certified trainers are available in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.
First Aid Training Simplified
We make it our priority, not only to provide access to accredited First Aid training, but also to streamline First Aid courses by blending online e-Learning with a minimum of face-to-face training.
You choose the time and place for your practical assessment. And while the days are clicking over, up to your scheduled face-to-face session, you can complete the theory component — online and at your convenience.
Once you book your course, you get immediate online access to a PDF First Aid manual. You’ll find it full of information and well-explained from start to finish.
However, depending on the course you selected, only a portion of the manual might be needed for your e-Learning questionnaire.
If you’re running short on time, simply use the manual as a reference to help you answer True or False or check off the correct multiple-choice answers.
If it takes you a few goes to arrive at the correct answer— you get as many attempts as you need — it would pay to consider why it’s correct. That way, your understanding of First Aid will also be correct.
e-Learning plus Face-toFace
You need to submit your e-Learning assessment before you can attend your face-to-face First Aid class.
You have until 11:59pm the night before. But you’ll enjoy the face-to-face session more if you’re not sleep-deprived!
It’s better you get started sooner rather than later. You want to arrive for class with time to spare — relaxed, not rushed off your feet.
Your First Aid class will be run like clockwork because we appreciate the time constraints most of us are under.
And, like clockwork, your First Aid certificate will be emailed to you, shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes. Same-day certification!
Your First Aid certificate from Australia Wide First Aid will be recognised the length and breadth of Australia. You’ll be ready for career advancement, workplace compliance, as well as saving lives.
In time, your First Aid certificate is going to need a refresher. For example, HLTAID001 CPR needs to be renewed annually. The HLTAID003 Provide First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years, although the CPR component needs the annual refresher.
Renewing First Aid certificates is simply so you can align your skills with updated training methodology.
First Aid Courses in Sydney Now Available
Our Sydney First Aid training centre now offers the following First Aid courses:
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – CPR is an emergency response technique that combines chest compressions and artificial ventilation. It is used to return the flow of oxygenated blood to major organs after a person’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
This unit of competency prepares you to provide an emergency First Aid response in a variety of scenarios. You will learn single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including response for regurgitation or vomiting. Also management of an unconscious breathing casualty, proper use of automated external defibrillator, and First Aid management for the following conditions: allergic reaction, shock, bleeding, choking and airway obstruction, anaphylaxis, asthma, and other types of respiratory distress.
This is the most popular unit of First Aid training competency, particularly for community and workplace settings.
In Provide First Aid, you learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including management of vomiting, airway obstruction and choking, care for an unconscious breathing casualty, and appropriate use of an AED (automated external defibrillator).
You will learn other First Aid techniques, such as managing fractures and sprains, treating bites and stings including the use of the pressure immobilisation technique (PIT).
You’ll also learn how to provide an appropriate emergency response for allergy and anaphylaxis, asthma and respiratory distress, control of bleeding, and shock management.
This course is of particular interest among those who work with children. Covering the same units as Provide CPR and Provide First Aid, this course has an additional focus on First Aid applied to infants and children.
With a total face-to-face training duration of 5 hours plus pre-course reading and online assessment, this Emergency First Aid course is a requirement if you intend to work in the childcare sector.
In this course, you’ll learn CPR techniques that apply to infants and children, as well as adults. You’ll learn how to assess emergency situations, provide First Aid for various types of injuries, and manage medical conditions.
Includes: Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (HLTAID001), Provide Basic Emergency Life Support (HLTAID002), Provide First Aid (HLTAID003), and Provide an Emergency Response in an Education and Care Setting (HLTAID004).
First Aid Course Entry Requirements
Entry requirements for our Sydney First Aid training are simple — you need to be at least 14 years of age, and under-18s need permission.
While learning First Aid as early as possible is to be applauded, not every youngster is able to perform some of the vital practical techniques taught, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Students, regardless of age, are required to perform uninterrupted CPR while kneeling on the floor for no less than 2 minutes.
If you’re under the age of 18, you are going to need signed parental/guardian consent at enrolment.
The Benefits of Learning First Aid in Sydney
Learning First Aid in Sydney — or anywhere else for that matter — is to learn a vital skill that may just save someone’s life. But the benefits of learning First Aid don’t end at saving lives…
Providing First Aid without delay helps determine the progress of the person’s recovery. If, on the other hand, First Aid is not administered immediately, the health of a casualty can deteriorate rapidly.
Many people who unfortunately did not receive First Aid soon enough, have suffered long-term or even life-long disabilities. First Aid can make all the difference.
By enrolling in a First Aid Course, you’ll be learning vital knowledge and skills that could help preserve someone’s quality of life.
High quality First Aid training underpins safe and healthy communities. When people know First Aid, they look out for one another and do not shy away from dealing with situations involving medical emergencies.
Do not hesitate if you’re contemplating getting First Aid Training for yourself or for your organisation.
What Is First Aid?
First Aid refers to the administration of immediate care to an ill or injured individual until professional medical help arrives.
First Aid skills can serve the purpose of treating a minor condition, such as dressing a small wound. In more serious cases, however, First Aid is provided as preliminary care until such time the sick or injured person is attended to by emergency and medical professionals.
First Aid is typically given in order to prevent a condition from getting worse, to provide comfort, to quicken the recovery of an affected individual, and to preserve life. Saving lives is particularly true for First Aid techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
