First Aid Course Queensland
Queensland — the “Sunshine State” — is Australia’s second-largest and third-most populous state. Spectacular beaches bring many tourists to Queensland, especially to those on the Gold Coast, with its nightlife, dining, and shopping precincts.
Queensland is also renowned for the enthusiasm its citizens share in pitching in to help one another. It’s no wonder that becoming a certified First Aider in Queensland is such a natural fit — giving back to one’s community and caring for your neighbour’s wellbeing is a Queensland tradition.
First Aid certification is invaluable in Australia, where sport and adventure outdoor are championed at every turn. And now, with our lives being busier than ever, First Aid courses have evolved, becoming more flexible and streamlined.

What Is First Aid?
First Aid is a form of intervention for a sick or injured person 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.
The more complex measures, such as CPR, must be taught by an accredited professional.
All in all, First Aid is meant to do the following:
- Preserve life
- Prevent further injury, and
- Promote recovery
These three items are known as the 3 P’s or basic principles of First Aid.
Students in a First Aid training course will learn just how much of a difference quick thinking, timely intervention, a calm countenance, and well-applied technique will make in saving someone’s life.
This set of knowledge should be available to everyone—if more people are equipped to administer first aid, their home communities are guaranteed better health, safety, and security.
Aspiring First Aiders will learn basic concepts pertaining to First Aid; will be taught how to properly apply advanced techniques; and will be trained to enter the proper state of mind to make those hard calls in emergency situations. In the process, they will likely foster key values such as trust in others, mental strength, calmness, and compassion.
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 advanced knowledge of First Aid.
First Aid training from a nationally recognised and accredited organisation can also help you attain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
