The Southport First Aid Trainer Martin was fantastic. He was very relaxed, non egotistical, genuine, the stories he... told were relevant and straight to the point, the demonstrations were easy to follow and were weren't singled out or embarrased whilst doing them ourselves. After having done a few of these, I can confidently say for me, this trainer was the least boring and I learnt the most from. Thank more

The CPR course was thorough and Informative. Trainer Martin was great and very knowledgeable and repeated important... information as well. I did love how the test part (multiple choice questions) was able to be done prior to doing the face to face teaching. And if a question was wrong you were able to access the ebook training for correct answers. An enjoyable course. Location was great. I would recommend these guys, and would attend this training more

Essential reading for first aid students

First aid and the 3Ps

First aid refers to a set of interventions for a person in need of immediate medical care, applied before medical assistance becomes available.

First aid awareness can be developed at any age, however 14 years is the accepted starting point. First aid training that comes with certification, involves learning complex techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, so under-14s are deemed too young for such demanding responsibilities.

The 3 basic principles of first aid, or 3Ps are:

  • Preserve life
  • Prevent further injury, and
  • Promote recovery.

Students in training will revisit these, strengthening their foundation in cutting edge first aid techniques, as well as their abilities to make tough calls, act quickly under pressure, and exercise compassion.

The more people who understand the 3Ps and the actions behind them, the safer and healthier our communities will become.

How will first aid benefit me?

First aid knowledge is invaluable in times of medical emergency. This really hits home if you picture a family member falling victim to a life threatening accident, such as collapsing from a stroke or a heart attack.

With first aid training under your belt, you’d have the chance to turn things around for the better… the chance of a lifetime.

Being able to intervene in a matter of life and death is what first aid training is all about. And these are not skills reserved for medical professionals only. You can do this.

Your first aid training will impact positively on you, your family, and your colleagues. You’ll feel calm and composed about the prospect of being called for medical assistance.

First aid certification also improves your employability. You are more likely to get the job you’re after because you’ve demonstrated your willingness to take responsibility. Prospective employers can see this.

In addition, first aid certification is a means of accruing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points, satisfying the requirements for career advancement in many industries.

Proof of Double Vaccination is required at this first aid training centre.
Admission to the venue will not be possible without showing proof via documentation or via the relevant app.

An alternative option would be to choose another of our training centres that does not currently ask for proof of double vaccination.
