What Is First Aid?
First aid is all about providing immediate assistance to a sick or injured person until professional medical help becomes available. It aims to prevent the patient’s conditioning worsening and ultimately saves lives.
First aid treatment can be as simple as dressing minor wounds or helping a person who is experiencing a serious asthma attack. It could also involve more advanced first aid procedures, not the least of which is cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
First aid attention also provides something that can never be overstated and that is to reassure the distressed casualty until professional medical personnel arrive.
To attend a first aid course with Australia Wide First Aid, you must be at least 14 years of age.
For cardiopulmonary resuscitation assessment, you’ll need to be capable of kneeling on the floor to perform 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on a manikin. Bring something to cushion your knees if you wish.

Child Care First Aid or Provide First Aid?
Our Perth first aid courses share common competencies, with each course teaching the basics in terms of providing first aid and basic life support, and both include CPR. And all courses meet the requirements of our regulator and peak industry bodies.
However, the courses differ in their duration and the scope of situations they handle. In particular, Child Care First Aid has a special focus on providing first aid for infants and children in emergency situations.
The Child Care First Aid course is a requirement for staff employed in the Education and Childcare sectors. As with the Provide First Aid certification, you would need to refresh your Child Care First Aid training and renew your qualification every 3 years.
Child Care First Aid can be taught to groups at your premises.
Whether at our location or yours, our Perth first aid courses are fully accredited. As well as a way to acquire valuable first aid knowledge and skills, these are courses designed to streamline the process of attaining a first aid certificate.
At Australia Wide First Aid, our goal is to make first aid skills available to as many people as possible throughout Australia. In this way, we can help to keep people as safe as possible in their homes and workplaces.
