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.

As for where, 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!

We are convenient to Central Station, the Trams, Ferries, Haymarket, Chinatown, Darling Harbour, The Star gaming complex, the Sydney Fish Markets, Capitol Theatre, Event Cinema Complex, Sydney Town Hall, Queen Victoria Building, Martin Place, Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, The Rocks, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

However, no matter where you are in Sydney’s CBD or its inner suburbs — whether you’re relaxing at the Harbour, working in the office, or heading out to one of Sydney’s world famous beaches — accidents don’t discriminate. None of us are immune from the unexpected. It can strike when you least expect it.

In a medical emergency, it’s vital to know how to help people in need by responding quickly and providing effective First Aid. Every second counts. And, let’s face it, no one wants to be that guy who stands back hoping someone else will help.

First Aid Course Sydney Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for our First Aid training in Sydney are simple. Students need to be at least 14 years of age to attend our First Aid courses.

First Aid training plays an invaluable role in creating safe and healthy communities. And although we believe that people should learn First Aid as early as possible, not everyone under 14 years of age has sufficient physical strength to perform some of the vital practical techniques taught, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

For these reasons, we require all students, regardless of age, to have the physical ability to administer resuscitation by performing uninterrupted CPR while kneeling on the floor for 2 minutes.

Students who are under the age of 18 are required to provide 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 did you know that the benefits of providing First Aid go far beyond saving a life?

When First Aid is not administered immediately, the health of a casualty can deteriorate rapidly. In many cases, providing immediate assistance helps determine the progress of the person’s recovery.

Many people have unfortunately suffered long-term or even life-long disabilities simply because they either did not receive First Aid soon enough. First Aid can make all the difference.

By completing a First Aid Course, you’ll be equipped with precious knowledge and skills that could help preserve someone’s quality of life.

High quality First Aid Training is crucial in creating safe and healthy communities. When people know First Aid, they are empowered to confidently deal with situations involving medical emergencies.

If you’re contemplating getting First Aid Training for yourself or for your organisation, don’t even hesitate.

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 skills are provided with the intention of administering preliminary care until such time that 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.
