What is First Aid and Why Do You Need to Learn It?

Benefit of learning first aid

First aid is first-response medical assistance provided to a person suffering from an injury or illness.

Until full medical assistance is available, first aid prevents the patient’s condition from getting worse.

In the unpredictable case of accidents and medical emergencies, first aid skills are invaluable in preventing panic and loss of life.

Accredited first aid training and certification will give you the skills and the confidence to help those in need in emergency situations. It will be a game changer when someone near and dear requires immediate care for a medical episode, such as a severe allergy, heart condition, or seizure disorder.

It’s a potentially life-saver when you have the right knowledge and training.

First aid training will also allow you to quickly evaluate risks to health and safety in your environment, be it the home, your place of work, or elsewhere. You can then take steps to minimise those risks.

First aid certification can also help boost your career. A first aid certificate is a requirement in some industries and huge plus in many more.

Australia Wide First Aid is a nationally recognised training organisation (RTO  No. 31961) specialising in providing fully accredited courses and certification that is recognised Australia-wide.

You will benefit from the most professional and efficient first aid training available.

Our training is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP).

First aid for safety and survival

Prompt and proper first aid ultimately aims to preserve a person’s life.

It’s the first responder’s best plan to attend to a person in a medical emergency. This action strives to prevent their injury or illness becoming worse until the availability of full medical attention.

First aid treatment can be the difference between life and death. It can also have a dramatic impact on the patient’s recovery time and quality of life after accident or injury.

Acquiring first aid skills and knowledge will help you remain calm, considerate, and compassionate.

You’ll be able to quickly and correctly assess situations and take efficient and effective action. This confident first aid response is reassuring and calming for the patient, who will be less likely to feel anxious or afraid.
