First aid certification is a universally valuable credential, and many Australians now seek to adapt this vital set of skills to their everyday lives. But how does one find a reputable institution from which to learn first aid? Moreover, which type of first aid course should one undertake, and are these said classes readily available to the public at a time and place that suits them?
This is where Australia Wide First Aid comes in. We are a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO No. 31961) that caters to would-be first aiders from all over Australia. We are endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN), so we fulfil a high standard in the provision of first aid training.
As of this time, we have branches in 20 locations across the country. We offer a variety of first aid courses that can be booked any day of the week, and each course is structured so that you can receive your first aid certification in just 1 day. Our courses are held at accessible and convenient venues, but we also offer on-site training and assessment sessions. You also have the option to book a group session at your home or workplace. Seasoned professionals from our team will show up at your doorstep, ready to walk each group member through the particulars of the first aid course.
Queensland is distinctive for being Australia’s second-largest and third-most populous state. The so-called “Sunshine State” houses 10 of Australia’s largest cities, and life in the metropolis is busy and fast-paced. Summer weather also brings many tourists to Queensland’s many spectacular beaches, like those in the Gold Coast. The bustling communities of Queensland are the way they are because citizens are willing to help each other live their best lives. That’s why being a certified first aider in Queensland isn’t just a strategic move to fit in—it’s a way of giving back to one’s community and contributing to everyone else’s health and development.
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), or 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, these learners will likely foster key values such as trust in others, mental strength, calmness, and compassion.
Why Should You Be Learning How to Do First Aid?
You may not be able to imagine it at first, but you shouldn’t rule out the day you’re caught in an emergency situation. A stranger might suffer a heart attack or seizure on the street, or—worse yet—a loved one of yours might be wounded or fall sick whilst in your company. No one can choose when these instances transpire; however, one can always choose to be prepared for them.
The benefits of first aid certification go beyond the actual cases of emergency. You can make someone who suffers from a chronic illness or is extra vulnerable because of their age feel safer around you. Outside of your home and/or work environment, you’ll be an asset to your companions; your family outings and company vacations will become more enjoyable. First aid knowledge can also grant you some peace of mind when you’re navigating through unfamiliar environments, such as when you’re travelling to a foreign country.
Attaining first aid certification from a nationally recognised organisation can also improve your chances of employment. Some industries, such as that of child care services, require at least one person employed in their centre to have advanced knowledge of first aid. In other cases, the certification may result in a higher pay grade. Obtaining training from an accredited organization can also help you attain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
Do You Have What It Takes to Be a First Aider?
You can become an authorised first aider when you earn a Statement of Attainment. Australia Wide First Aid will dispense the said Statement of Attainment after enrolled students complete the required units of their chosen first aid module. Would-be students can choose between regular modules or express modules that focus on particular techniques (such as CPR), or workplace-specific modules.
Anyone who is 14 years old and above can enrol in an accredited first aid training course at Australia Wide First Aid. Students who graduate from Australia Wide First Aid’s courses are sure to have sufficient training and certification. In other words, those who complete the training will become bona fide first aiders.
