What is First Aid? And how did it originate?
The roots of first aid in Australia go back more than 200 years. And most would agree it is even more vital and relevant to our lives today than it was 2 centuries ago.
First aid has evolved in step with both technology and the continual development of skills, honed by first responders and the larger medical community.
First aid, by definition, is a set of first-response interventions applied to a person in a medical emergency, before more qualified medical assistance becomes available.
The term “first aid” (in German, erste hilfe) was coined in 1870 by a Prussian military surgeon named Friedrich von Esmarch. He formalised the use of first aid during the Franco-Prussian War and first aiders today replicate the sensibility first demonstrated by soldiers.
Bandaging wounds, treating burns, and advanced techniques, such as CPR, are all part of first aid training.
Students learn 3 basic principles — or 3Ps — that govern their first aid training:
- Preserve life
- Prevent further injury, and
- Promote recovery.
The 3Ps are the driving forces behind first aid techniques and in the student’s development of mental strength, compassion, and decision-making skills under pressure.
Why learn first aid now?
Learning first aid, and enhancing your knowledge of it over time, offers plenty of benefits. None are as obvious as when an actual medical emergency unfolds in real-time.
If you have a loved one suffering from a health condition and who is vulnerable to sickness or injury, then you will be well-equipped to take care of them.
You can also step in and play the part of a Good Samaritan if a stranger falls into cardiac arrest or there is a car accident which can happen anywhere including right in front of you.
Your first aid knowledge can also improve everyone’s general quality of life. Your home will be safer for it, and your office, club, or sports team can count on you as an asset.
First aid also ensures your own health and wellbeing. For example, you’ll have better mental presence and awareness of how to help yourself if you are out and about in Ipswich city by yourself.
There is also the chance that your job prospects will improve. Some of our students enrol in our courses to gain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
Still, others attend our career-specific modules, such as anaphylaxis and asthma management for education and child care workers. But even if first aid training is not a prerequisite for your field of work, the credentials will still stand out on your resume.
Your potential employers will assume that you have leadership and decision-making skills, and perceive you to be responsible and a very helpful and levelheaded person.
Making cutting-edge first aid training accessible
Australia Wide First Aid, is a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961), committed to making cutting-edge first aid training accessible to all Australians.
We deliver first aid training to the public, not just in Ipswich, but also in locations right across the country.
Each of our first aid training venues is within easy reach by public and private transport. More than this, we also provide the option of conducting face-to-face group first aid training sessions in your home or workplace.

Australia Wide First Aid’s Ipswich birthplace
Ipswich — originally a coal mining town — is home to some amazing character homes and heritage commercial buildings. Ipswich also happens to be where Australia Wide First Aid originated and, to this day, remains one of Australia Wide First Aid’s key training locations.
Ipswich is one of the country’s fastest growing cities and, over the coming decade, its 200,000-strong population is expected to double.
The city is also home to major railways, such as the Ipswich and Rosewood railways, and cultural treasures, such as the Ipswich Central Library, Ipswich art gallery, and Ipswich Historical Society.
Aspects that animate the city are its coal mining history and its rather humid climate, which sees very hot summers and powerful summer storms. Such conditions, of course, have shaped the city. They are also the conditions in which heat stroke, cardiac arrest, and injury can occur.
Basic first aid training courses are by far the most popular. These courses are essentially the ones that most employers require their staff to complete to meet workplace health and safety compliance.
Special focus in these first aid courses is given to vital life-saving techniques such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Being able to get your first aid certificate on the same day as successful completion of your training course has proved a real game changer for the people of Ipswich.
