It takes more than goodwill to respond to an emergency situation. To ensure that you’ll be able to extend proper help, you need to learn the right skills and knowledge. This is where first aid training comes in. With it, you’ll be able to identify risks and emergency situations, administer first aid, and prevent the victim’s condition from worsening until full medical attention is available.
To make first aid trainings more accessible to everyone, Australia Wide First Aid offers first aid training in 21 locations across the country. Our nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961) offers individual and group bookings, and we can also send out trainers and assessors to your location for on-site trainings. This way, you’ll receive instructions that are catered to the nature of your work or facility.
Our courses are conducted according to the guidelines set by the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR). We also use the VET Quality Framework to ensure that all our students receive high quality training in a consistently professional manner.
One of our training locations in Queensland is found in North Lakes, which is located 26 kilometres away from Brisbane central business district.
Use the steps or lift on the right-hand side of the Norwinn Centre. Suite 1.2 is located 50m down the hall. There’s free parking on Discovery Drive and at the Centre itself. The venue is accessible via Anzac Avenue and the Bruce Highway, and a bus route passes by it. Students are enjoined to arrive at the training venue 15 minutes ahead of their scheduled course so they can complete their enrolment documents and forms.
What Are the Advantages of Learning First Aid?
Acquiring first aid skills and knowledge presents plenty of advantages not only to prospective first aiders but also to the people around them. Your family and officemates will feel safer and more secure because of the presence of a first aider in the vicinity. They know that someone has the skills and knowledge to offer them help in emergency situations.
Certified first aiders also stand to gain from their first aid skills. They’ll feel more confident responding to various situations, acquire a keen eye for spotting risks and hazards, and hone their decision-making skills in times of emergency. This can be a relief if they’re living or working with a person who is at risk for various health emergencies. What’s more, first aid certifications can be an advantage when applying for certain jobs or in some industries, and professionals can gain CPD points by attending first aid courses.
What Does It Take to Become a First Aider?
Anyone can be taught the value of first aid at any age, but students need to be at least 14 years old in order to join a first aid training course that will earn them a Statement of Attainment. Each student should complete their online assessment by 11:59 PM, the night before the scheduled face-to-face training. At the same time, they should also provide a valid USI, settle their payment for the course, and complete the assessment needed for the training. They’ll receive their Statement of Attainment within 48 hours of passing the assessment and completing all the requirements of the course.

Regular versus Express Courses
Australia Wide First Aid’s regular and express courses have the same content, but the former is designed for those who will get their Statement of Attainment for the first time, while the latter is for those who are renewing their certification. Express courses generally require less hours of face-to-face training and serve as a convenient option for employees who don’t want to compromise their productivity while taking classes. To remain current, Statements of Attainment must be renewed periodically. The certificate for CPR, for example, should be renewed every 12 months.
