My son & I had a wonderful time when we attended the Robina First Aid course. Martin was an engaging trainer who... delivered the course concisely and informatively. I’ve been to other company’s in the past and always left without clear knowledge of what I just sat through. Today after leaving the course I felt confident that I would be able to perform first aid if needed. I would highly recommend Australia Wide First Aid to anyone looking to complete their certificates.read more

Critical Student Information

What is 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 starting point. Formal First Aid training, which 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 constantly 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 home 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.
