What is first aid?
First Aid is an intervention for sick or injured persons that provides emergency care before professionals arrive to administer full medical assistance.
First aid measures include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Treating wounds and burns
- Administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
- Responding to symptoms of asthma or anaphylactic shock
Training in first aid techniques, such as CPR, will be conducted by accredited professionals.
All in all, first aid is meant to do the following:
- Preserve life
- Prevent further injury, and
- Promote recovery
These three purposes are known as the 3 P’s or basic principles of first aid.
Students in first aid training courses will learn basic concepts pertaining to first aid. They will learn to properly apply advanced techniques and will be better able to make those hard calls in emergency situations.
Aspiring first aiders will learn the effectiveness of timely intervention, quick thinking, and well-applied technique in emergency situations. In the process, they will likely foster key values such as trust in others, mental strength, calmness, and compassion.
If more people are equipped to administer first aid, their home communities will enjoy better outcomes for their health, safety, and security.
Why Should I Learn First Aid?
Never say never. You just don’t know when you might face an emergency of the medical kind. Someone you know might suddenly suffer a heart attack or seizure. A loved one, even a complete stranger, could be injured or fall sick, with no one else around but you.
Now is your opportunity to choose to be prepared by learning first aid.
The benefits of first aid certification go beyond responding in cases of emergency. That special someone in your life who suffers from chronic illness or is extra vulnerable because of their age, will feel safer having you around.
You’ll be an asset to your companions. They will look your way respectfully, comforted by your preparedness and responsible attitude. Vacations and family outings become more assured and therefore enjoyable.
When you’re travelling, or in unfamiliar environments, your first aid knowledge will give you peace of mind.
A first aid certificate can also improve your chances of employment. In some cases, the certification leads to a higher pay grade.
Childcare Services is one of many industries that asks for accredited first aid training.
First aid certification from a nationally recognised and accredited organisation can also help you attain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
