Learning first aid prepares you for emergencies and helps you stay calm in situations that would otherwise cause you to panic. First aid teaches you to identify risks and plan for disasters, as well as the skills and knowledge needed to preserve life and prevent injuries from worsening.
Australia Wide First Aid makes it easy for people to learn first aid. This nationally recognised training organisation (RTO 31961) has training locations all over the country and offers individual and group bookings. In addition to our regular trainings, we can also send our trainers and assessors to your home or office for on-site training. This makes our company an ideal choice for companies and businesses that want to equip their employees with first aid skills.
Our courses are taught according to the guidelines set by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) and the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). Our Provide First Aid course is also endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN). To take part in our courses and learn from our experienced trainers and assessors, you can check out our training venue in Ringwood, Victoria:
The venue, The Coach Hotel, is situated on the corner of the Maroondah Hwy and Eastlink. It is just a short walk from Eastland Shopping Centre. There are 2 train stations near the venue: Ringwood train station, which is a 16-minute walk away, and Heatherdale train station, which is 8 minutes away on foot. There is free parking behind the hotel.
Why Should You Learn First Aid?
Learning first aid presents an advantage to would-be first aiders and the people around them. In certain professions and industries, it’s an advantage for an applicant or employee to have first aid certification. In addition to serving as proof of someone’s skill and knowledge in first aid, having the status of a first aider implies that a person is capable of leadership and making level-headed decisions in the face of calamity or disaster. Taking first aid classes can also merit points that will go into one’s Continuing Professional Development.
Your family, friends, and colleagues also stand to benefit from your first aid skills. They’ll feel safer knowing that someone in their home or office knows what to do during emergencies and other unexpected situations. This, in turn, will help them focus more on their tasks and become more productive.
What Do You Need to Do to Become a First Aider?
Students need to be at least 14 years old in order to join a first aid class where they can earn a Statement of Attainment. Australia Wide First Aid’s courses have 2 parts: online assessment and face-to-face training. All students are required to complete their online assessment 11:59 PM the night before the face-to-face training. In addition, they should also complete their payment, present a valid USI, and pass all the requirements of the course. They’ll receive their Statement of Attainment within 48 hours of completing all their course requirements.
