It takes more than goodwill alone to respond to an emergency situation. To ensure that you’ll be able to extend proper help while at the same time not causing injury to yourself, you need to learn best practice first aid 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 emergency services arrive at the scene.
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 work mates will feel safer and more secure because of the presence of a first aider nearby. 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 also provide added assurance if they’re living or working with a person who is at risk of various health emergencies due to underlying health conditions. What’s more, first aid certification can be an advantage when applying for certain jobs or in some industries, and professionals can gain continual professional development (CPD) points by completing accredited first aid training 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 attend an Australia Wide First Aid first aid training course. Successful participants are issued with a Statement of Attainment. Each student is required to complete their pre-course reading and 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 via email on the same day as the course or at the latest within 24 hours of passing all assessments and completing all requirements of the course.
