One of our goals here at Australia Wide First Aid is to make first aid trainings as convenient as possible for our students. This is why we’ve chosen to hold regular training courses in Logan City, which is located between Brisbane and Gold Coast. We believe that this advantageous location can help us make first aid courses more accessible to residents and businesses in and around Logan.
Our company offers first aid training in 21 locations across the country. To take the stress out of organising trainings, Australia Wide First Aid has streamlined 1-day courses that students can take any day of the week. We can also send our team to your home or place of work, so you can receive face-to-face training that’s well suited to the nature of your business.
Australia Wide First Aid is a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961), and the courses we offer are strictly aligned with the guidelines set by the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR). As such, the statement of attainment that we issue our students are recognised nationally. We also have qualified and highly experienced trainers and assessors who deliver consistently professional training in accordance with the VET Quality Framework.
What Is First Aid?
Knowing first aid can help you save lives. First aid skills and knowledge can be used to ease the pain experienced by the patient and prevent their injuries from getting worse. It can spell the difference between life and death, the gravity of the injury, and the recovery period needed by the patient.
First aiders must have the necessary skills and knowledge to administer first aid. They should know how to properly assess the situation and make the right decisions. They should also remain calm in times of emergency, as one of their duties is to reassure the patient under their care.
Why Do You Need to Learn First Aid?
Emergency situations can happen any time at any place, and many people spend most of their time at home or in the workplace. Knowing how to administer first aid can give you the confidence to promptly help others in times of need without compromising your own safety.
Possessing first aid certifications can also improve your employability, as there are careers and workplaces that require people who know how to administer basic to advanced first aid. What’s more, undergoing first aid training can earn you Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
Another aspect of first aid that makes it so useful is that it helps you become more aware of the hazards in your home or workplace. Once you know the common dangers you face, you can take steps to reduce risks and formulate emergency response plans that address the specifics of your home, facility, or office situation.
What Does It Take to Become a First Aider?
To become a first aider, you need to undergo training from a registered training organisation like Australia Wide First Aid. After completing all the required units of a module and passing the assessment, you’ll receive a statement of attainment. Take note that a Provide First Aid certificate is valid for 3 years, while it is recommended that you renew your CPR certification every 12 months.
