The roots of First Aid in Australia reach back more than 200 years ago. And today most would argue that it is even more relevant and vital to our existence than it was then.
With the development of technology and skills continually honed by first responders from the medical profession and beyond, the evolution of First Aid speaks for itself.
Australia Wide First Aid, as a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961), aims to keep the dream alive by 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).
Streamlined First Aid Certification
Whether you are new to First Aid or simply wishing to refresh your skills and renew your First Aid certification, Australia Wide First Aid’s streamlined courses are ideal. We combine a minimum of face-to-face First Aid training with a well-crafted e-Learning course that you will easily fit into your busy schedule.
What is First Aid, and How Did It Originate?
First aid refers to a set of stopgap measures that are applied to someone undergoing a medical emergency, before additional medical assistance becomes available. The term “first aid” (in German, erste hilfe) was first coined in 1870 by a Prussian military surgeon named Friedrich von Esmarch, who formalised its use during the Franco-Prussian War. Today’s first aiders are meant to replicate the sensibility that was first carried out by soldiers, learning techniques such as bandaging wounds, treating burns, or applying advanced techniques like CPR.
New students will learn that these 3 basic principles, or 3Ps, will govern their first aid training: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. The 3Ps are the driving force behind particular first aid techniques and in the students’ development of mental strength, compassion, and decision-making skills under pressure.
What Are the Benefits of Learning 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.
How Does One Become a First Aid Provider?
A student is awarded ‘first aider’ status when they complete their chosen course and receive a Statement of Attainment. They can choose to attain proficiency in all-around first aid training, in particular techniques like CPR, or in specialised first aid methods like anaphylaxis and asthma management. First-time students or those who have already completed many first aid course over the years are welcome to enrol in Australia Wide First Aid’s courses.
There is a minimum age requirement of 14 years old to enrol in our first aid certificate programs. All minors under the age of 18 must submit a form of consent from their parents or guardians. Upon completing all course requirements, students will receive their Statement of Attainment which is recognised anywhere in Australia.

Ipswich Growing Birthplace of Australia Wide First Aid
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.
