It was also about... making sure you were applying your knowledge correctly and mastering your application with first aid and CPR to a casualty.

His teaching style by encouraging us to think "what if this was our loved one "was something I had not really considered in a training and was very engaging. It added an extra layer to training I do every year.read more

The best first Aid and CPR course that I've attended. Colin's knowledge, wisdom and ability to impart this knowledge... was exemplary. His belief that First Aid is life skills, not just a work place requirement, meant that we engaged in the course knowing that we will most likely save a family member if required to use it. His practical examples, clear instructions and extended time to practise skills instilled confidence in the participants. Excellent course.read more

Best First Aid and CPR course that I have done so far. The instructor Colin was awesome at teaching in a way I... understand. He made it more real and relatable and explained the steps and why we do it. His background of being a previous paramedic definitely helps as he understands first hand the importance of how to save lives and can give knowledge that no other person could give. His ways of demonstrating things are real and logical and practical to what you may have to face one day with the very little you may have.read more

How our first aid training works

Getting your first aid certificate through Australia Wide First Aid is a streamlined process that allows you to do it in one day if you need.

Step 1: You need to provide a valid USI and of course, pay for your first aid training.

Step 2: Complete the e-Learning — the online first aid course module. This includes pre-course reading and submitting your online assessment on time (by 11:59pm before the day of your scheduled face-to-face- training).

Step 3: Attend the just-mentioned face-to-face training and assessment.

Once you’ve ticked these boxes, your first aid certificate  (PDF Statement of Attainment) will be emailed to you the same day.

Australia Wide First Aid certificates are recognised Australia-wide. Our first aid courses are also a valuable means of accruing continuing professional development (CPD) points.

Renewing your first aid certification is recommended by regulators. That’s because first aid is most needed in life or death situations. Updating and refreshing your first aid skills makes perfect sense.

HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be renewed annually. HLTAID003 Provide first aid should be renewed every 3 years — the same applies to HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting.

Do your bit for Ipswich, as well as for yourself and your family and friends, by becoming first aid certified as soon as possible.

Choose from the following Ipswich first aid courses:

HLTAID003 Provide first aid
HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation
HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting (Child Care First Aid)

How Do You Become a First Aider?

You attain ‘first aider’ status when you complete your chosen course and receive a Statement of Attainment. You can choose to reach proficiency in all-around first aid training, in particular techniques like CPR, or in additional essential first aid methods, such as anaphylaxis and asthma management.

You need to be over the age of 14 years to enrol in our first aid certificate programs.

After completing all course requirements, students receive their Statement of Attainment which is recognised all over Australia.

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.

practicing CPR in a course

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, as 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.

We are endorsed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Nursing (ACN). Our trainers comply with the VET Quality Framework, and our first aid techniques are taught in accordance with guidelines set by the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR).

Australia Wide First Aid 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.
