This was my second training with Australia Wide First Aid at Mt. Gravatt. Both sessions were well delivered and covered... all the necessary training in a time efficient manner. The second session was delivered during COVID restrictions which meant less hands-on training for some of the first aid aspects and while wearing masks. Despite this, the training was still comprehensive and effective. Jayson has a very calm, organised teaching style which caters to learners of all levels.read more

I attended the first aid and CPR course today. Fee Vickers was the trainer and I cannot speak highly enough of her... ability to create a sense of belonging and make the course material relevant to the learner. She was engaging and able to help me (and the group) feel at ease and able to contribute, using a variety of teaching techniques to keep us moving. It was a hands-on experience, which I found made learning easy, and the time just flew by.Great communicator, academy award winning acting (in case study scenarios) and a good overall experience. I feel prepared.Thanks very much Fee!read more

What You’ll Learn in Your First Aid Course

You’ll gain a wide range of new skills when you learn First Aid at our Brisbane Southside training venues. These skills  will enable you to respond to an injured or ill person in an emergency.

AED and CPR training

You’ll learn what to do when a person has stopped breathing. In many emergency situations, CPR — cardiopulmonary resuscitation — is the game changer. It is of such vital importance, it’s a wonder learning it isn’t part of every school-kid’s education.

You’ll also learn how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This is the heart-starter that paramedics regularly use to deliver a shock to a person undergoing cardiac arrest.

Treating wounds and bodily injuries

You’ll also learn another important facet of First Aid — wound care. Cuts, sprains, burns and bites all need correct bandaging. Along with techniques to manage injury to bones, muscles and joints, you’ll be shown the best treatment for injuries to the neck, spine, or head.

Breathing and choking emergencies

There are First Aid techniques for checking the breathing of a casualty and clearing the airway if called for. You’ll learn those techniques, as well as what to do when someone is choking, from infants to adults. You’ll understand and be able to provide First Aid responses that are appropriate for managing an asthma or anaphylaxis attack.

Poison training

Knowing how to deliver First Aid to a person who has been poisoned is a critical aspect of your training. You’ll learn how to safely treat a victim who has been poisoned whether the toxin was inhaled, ingested, or injected by needle or fang.

Unexpected medical emergencies

Your First Aid course will also prepare you for responding to unexpected medical emergencies — from epileptic seizures to strokes and heart attacks. Your training will allow you to think quickly and act confidently. You’ll be ready to make decisions and take steps that will help avoid disastrous outcomes.

Emergencies can occur in the home, the workplace, or while you’re out and about. But with your First Aid training, you’ll be able to take the kind of action that saves lives.

Our First Aid classes teach you not only appropriate emergency responses, but also what to look for, and how to stay safe yourself.

On a day-to-day level, your First Aid training will strengthen your resolve, lift your attitude, and enhance your career.

How Australia Wide First Aid Delivers

Our First Aid training is COVID-safe. Hygiene and social distancing are maintained at all times.

We provide one-on-one, as well as group First Aid classes. The group classes can be held at your site, which means that the First Aid training can be customised to suit your specific environment.

Our industry-experienced, fully certified trainers are available in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.

First Aid Training Simplified

We make it our priority to not only provide access to accredited First Aid training, but also to blend online e-Learning with the minimum of face-to-face training.

From the outset, you choose the time and place for your practical assessment. And while the days click over until your scheduled face-to-face session, you simply complete the theory component online and at your convenience.

Once you book your course, you’ll have immediate online access to a PDF First Aid manual. You’ll find it full of important information and well-explained from start to finish.

However, depending on the course you selected, only a portion of the manual might be needed for your e-Learning questionnaire.

If you’re running short on time, you can simply refer to the manual as you’re answering the questionnaire. You can have as many attempts as you need to choose True or False, check the correct multiple-choice answers, and complete the handful of drag-and-drop puzzles.

If it takes a few attempts to arrive at the correct answer, it pays to consider why it’s correct. That way, you’ll gain a better insight into First Aid.

You have until 11:59pm the night before your face-to-face First Aid class to submit your e-Learning assessment. Of course, it’s better if you get started sooner rather than later.

Our trainers keep things light-hearted and entertaining in class. You’ll enjoy it more if you’re not sleep-deprived! And you want to arrive with time to spare, relaxed.

Your First Aid Course Completed

Completing your First Aid class is not a difficult process. We make sure it runs like clockwork because we appreciate the time constraints most of us are under.

Your First Aid certificate will be emailed to you, like clockwork too, shortly after you’ve completed the course. Yes. Same-day certification!

You’ll be pleased to know that your First Aid certificate from Australia Wide First Aid will be recognised the length and breadth of Australia. You’ll be ready for career advancement, workplace compliance, and saving lives.

In time, your First Aid certificate will need a refresher. For example, HLTAID001 CPR needs to be renewed annually, including the CPR component within HLTAID003 Provide First Aid, the balance of which needs a refresher course only after 3 years. This is simply so First Aiders can align their skills with updated training methodology.

Safety First at our Mount Gravatt First Aid Courses

Australia Wide First Aid provides accredited First Aid training, ranging from basic CPR to courses that will benefit people in specific industries. You’ll see these listed below.

Our most popular First Aid course and the one that First Aid-compliant workplaces insist on, is HLTAID-003 — Provide First Aid. This course will teach you the all-important DRSABCD stategy that is a foundation for providing safe First Aid.

What is DRSABCD?

    • Danger
      – be alert to any probable threats
    • Response
      – seek response from the injured person
    • Send for help
      – call emergency services
    • Airway
      – make sure the person’s airways are unobstructed
    • Breathing
      – monitor the person’s breathing
    • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
      – if breathing stops, try to resuscitate
    • Defibrillation
      – restarting the heart may require a defibrillator



Assess the scene for broken glass, overturned furniture, or sharp objects — anything that could endanger you, the victim, or bystanders, while you are trying to deliver medical assistance.

It is crucial too, that the perpetrator of the violence is not present while you’re providing First Aid. Both you and the victim would otherwise be in harm’s way should the perpetrator have another violent turn.

You will be in a position to safely assist the victim when there are no potential hazards.


Assess whether the victim is conscious and responsive by asking them:

  1. Can you hear me?
  2. Open your eyes
  3. What’s your name?
  4. Squeeze my hand

Send for help

Call emergency services — an ambulance for paramedic assistance and report the assault to the police.


The victim may be unconscious or having trouble breathing. Check to see whether their airways are clear. If not, roll the person onto their side carefully, so their spine, neck and head are aligned. Then clear out the contents of their mouth.


Look for chest movements, feel the lower part of their chest, to assess whether the victim is breathing. Listen closely at their nose and mouth. Assuming they are breathing, continue to monitor their breathing until paramedics arrive.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

If the victim is unconscious and not breathing, perform CPR. Roll the victim onto their back, place the heel of one hand on the centre of their chest with your other hand on top. Press your hands down firmly to a third of the depth of their chest and release. Repeat 30 times, then pinch their nose and place your mouth over theirs, before administering 2 breaths.

Continue with 30 compressions and 2 breaths until the victim responds or paramedics arrive to take over. If you’re uncomfortable about the risk of infection, do not apply the breaths.


When the paramedics arrive, they will decide if the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is going to be necessary.

This DRSABCD strategy is focused on basic life support. If the body is deprived of oxygen or the heart stops pumping, death follows quickly.
